You gotta read this-this is a truly Rockin Righteous Rebbe!
Real Leaders Don't Promote Dependency.
AMEN, AMEN, AMEN.
Americans were not placed on this earth to be dependents controlled by a
ruling class. Those accused of "not caring" are more likely to be
guided, actually, by the spirit of Genesis,
which says that a human reaches his majesty not by finding reasons to
shirk responsibility, but in overcoming his challenges and rising to his
moral potential through work and sacrifice."
sense of entitlement too often leads to ingratitude: why be grateful
for that which one has been told is rightfully his?
Entitlement-societies seem to have little compassion for those who work
hard and follow the rules, and see fairness as something due those
claiming victimhood but not those who are straight-laced and buttoned
"It corrupts moral language by imputing greed to those wanting to
retain the fruit of their labor for family while whitewashing the actual
greed of those who demand what belongs to others.
It's a must read.
I love this piece.
Go Rabbi Spero, go!
