Here’s a tough one to swallow: Morality as we know it applies to individuals, not to nations! The United Nations is nothing but an illusion. An illusion promoted by some pretty horrid people, to be sure; but an illusion nonetheless. The International Court in The Hague? Puhleez, it’s a joke. You can ignore it. Everyone else does. If you don’t like what Russia is doing (whatever that is supposed to be), then stop whining. Just make sure we have the necessary military power and the will to project it. That way you can tell them to cut it out. Otherwise you’re nothing but a buffoon. Remember one president who told us that he told Mr. Putin to “just cut it out”?  If you don’t like China’s progress to colonial power and world domination, well just make sure you have the power. International relations operate not on paper but on power. Spend all your political capital on imaginary climate problems, placating the whining gender/homeless/race/kindergartens and building windmills, and you can whistle while other less stupidly encumbered nations rule the world. Just a word to the wise, it’s more fun being a citizen of a powerful nation than of a weak one. Did I always want to be a rabbi? Actually, no. What did I really want to be? How do I keep up my schedule without relaxation? What incident in history would I like to witness? What is the saddest thing I often see? These are some of the questions that Cornerstone Television asked me. To my shock, I discovered just how open and candid were my answers. You’ll hear it all and more on this show.  Enjoy!
