    that owned the Schocken Book and Publishing Company during days of the Weimar Republic? If this is indeed the case, the focus could be a story that parallels Job. The Schocken family advocated then, as does the above piece: Moral superiority in the face of dangerous adversity and affinity to the ideology of the proletariat left. Just as then their fellow citizens who do not agree with the left were engaged in "apartheid" (or fascism, etc.). In Weimar this attitude of we know what is best for the masses - which included, if not in fact was led by Schocken, had the opposite effect. They helped Hitler get elected. Now almost a century later, a Schoken tars his fellow citizens with the "apartheid " label in spite of the dangerous threats of nuclear terrorism and assimilation. But just as then you offer no other choices than what was offered a century ago. The lesson should be to accept your own contribution to this tragedy instead of pointing the finger of moral superiority at those with whom you disagree.
