    you said: "BY "chosen" one meant, or understood "Chosen to work with our fellow humans to work with each other to build a decent social contract that allows all groups (who so desire) to live in harmony with each other." Would being a `chosen` people still be bad?" my answer: yes. it is like saying they, and only they, are chosen to be "good" and to work with fellow human beings.. it is so condescending. why can't others be able to be good? and anyway, who said that no one else is to accept the teachings of the Torah? if it was offered to others who refused it, how come the christians and the moslems accepted it later, knowing they have the same commandments (not called commandments) and believe in Mosis and his teachings...
