This was written in 1987 as I sat in the sentry booth of my military base north of Jerusalem late one night, or rather early one morning, pondering the state of the world and all the political and religious "ISMs" that people held so close to their hearts that they would kill and die for them. It would be easy for me to make a blanket statement and say that ANY "ism" worth killing or dying for is NOT worth killing and dying for, but I don't believe it is exactly like that; I believe that any "ism" that is carried so far as to make one feel as if they have to kill or die for is not an "ism" worth holding on to. TOO MUCH of any of these and they become lethal.

Let this stand as a strong word of caution in these incendiary days of the 2016 election season. G-d help us all.
