A very happy Passover to everyone. May my Jewish readers and all who are celebrating Seders have a fulfilling holiday, and may the day – which starts at sundown, wherever you are – bring joy to all.
I am about to begin celebrating the holiday with my family, so I’ll be out of pocket until late tonight.
The story of Passover describes how things suddenly turned bad for the Jews of Egypt, and they were enslaved. It occurs to me often that throughout history, people who believed they had things pretty good suddenly found life had taken an awful turn for the worse. Many Jews of Germany, for example, believed themselves proud members of the German people, until they were tragically informed otherwise in the 1930s.
What Passover teaches is that freedom is transitory, a gift from God that can be revoked by evil men. It’s no exaggeration to say this lesson is the basis for White House Dossier.
Many assume here in the United States that our freedom is a given, that America is forever, and that we will always have our way of life. But whether by steady erosion or sudden revocation, the threat to freedom is always present.
The first step toward maintaining freedom is holding government accountable. That is what I do here, hopefully contributing something to the preservation of liberty. Thank you for reading and joining with me in this.
May we never need a Moses in this country to save us.
