The point was not to say, As an exercise, I put together my own, narrower list, just around the topic of veganism (distinct from healthy eating, for which I have another list).I’ve gotten here gradually over the course of about six years, beginning with the day I decided I was going to cut just the red meat out of my diet — and that was a big deal!
Like Craig with his list, I have no intention of this being a “here’s what you should do” post.
It’s just a nice feeling – ESPECIALLY when you like and respect that person.
Hey, sometimes buying gifts for someone else feels 100 times better than it does buying something for yourself.
If Jewish "choseness" is in fact the cause of anti-Semitism, then hatred against the Jews should disappear when Jews drop the claim that they are chosen. The Jews in Germany and Austria experienced the most vicious outpouring of anti-Semitic hatred in history.
Late in the 19th century, the Jews living in Germany and Austria collectively rejected their "choseness" and were assimilated by their host nation. Gentile society was their social environment of choice, and Germany their beloved motherland. Precisely when Jews rejected their claim to "chosenness," they suffered the most virulent forms of anti-Semitism.
