Leadership Begins at Home

Sometimes there is something that makes us say, Look, this is new! — But it has already existed for ages before us.

~Ecclesiastes

History does repeat itself, often in ways that are eerily unsettling: In the year 70, as the Roman legions tightened their siege around Jerusalem, residents of the city grew increasingly desperate.

Do you imagine that the Jews came together to form a plan of action to defend Israel’s capital? If so, you would be wrong.

Two ideological factions despised each other with such vehemence that day after day bloody battles raged through the streets of the city. The sages called out for unity and an end to the fighting. Their pleas were ignored.

And what did the Roman soldiers do? They sat back and waited while the Jews destroyed themselves.

Aren’t we doing exactly the same thing?

Isn’t it time we learned the lessons of history?

He’s a rabbinic scholar, repentant hitchhiker, and co-host of the weekly podcast “The Rabbi and the Shrink.” He has published hundreds of articles applying ancient wisdom to the challenges of the modern world, and six books, most recently “Grappling with the Gray: an ethical handbook for personal success and business prosperity.” The ninja were covert agents in feudal Japan who practiced espionage, deception, and surprise attacks. Doesn't that make Ethics Ninja a contradiction in terms? Not at all. Just as the master of martial arts turns an opponent’s strength against himself, the Ethics Ninja turns attacks against moral values back against the adversaries of ethics, exposing groupthink and double-standards through rational argument in asymmetrical battle to vanquish the enemies of moral clarity.

  1. Of course they weren’t aware, Andre. They would no doubt think that Robespierre is a French designer of men’s bedroom attire. It’s like we’re living in one of those sci-fi movies where they go back in time to save the world and end up being the cause of it’s destruction.

    Thanks for your note, and for your contributions. All we can do is promote the cause of reason. I’m glad to have you as an ally.

  2. Brilliant Yonason – the message cannot be emphasised enough. I found it rather eerie to hear the Minneapolis councillors who want to get rid of the police suggesting that they would set up a Committee of Public Safety. Were they even aware of the Reign of Terror that was the consequence of the first one?
