A Rabbi claimed that A free society is a moral achievement…
…but he is wrong. There is all sorts of moralism to be seen in Islam and in Judaism; and the Compassionate Liberal can’t live without making at least ten moral postures a day – “What is life without virtue signalling?”
But morality does not create a free society: just laws rooted in the will of God (as opposed to powerful men), a limited state (instead of the limitless state), and a very active civil society – most especially a vibrant and godly Church – are the requirements of a free society.
