“There have been other ages confused about what is right and what is wrong, but could any of them have been as hopelessly bewildered as we are today?”
“Certainly, among nations, we must very soon find out what is right and do it, lest we bring upon ourselves the oft heralded annihilation of all of life.”
If anything, the dilemma Rabbi Olan spoke of is even more relevant today than it was in 1962. American society seems to be split between irreconcilable ideologies. The world is increasingly split between competing nations, ethnicities, and religions.
In this fractured world, do you think there is a set of higher or universal principles by which to judge right and wrong? What do you think of the principles Rabbi Olan proposed in 1962?
