Great article. But you ended by saying. 'Democracy, after all, is a Helenistic [sic] invention and very un-Jewish. So why not just drop the fiction of "Jewish and Democratic?"' Well, yes. But liberalism is an English invention, designed to prevent the tyranny of the majority. In Athenian democracy an intellectual like Socrates who had the chutzpah to question the war with Sparta, along with other accepted ideas, was forced to top himself. It's that illiberal chauvinistic democracy, an Athenian tyranny of the majority, which you seem to be worried that we are heading to. BTW. Eds – you really should at least use spell-check before you publish.
