Inspired Israel leads the world

“In per-capita innovation, Israel dwarfs all nations.”   N.Y. Post

THE ISRAEL TEST

by George Gilder

 

This new book documents the inspired leadership of Israel today in every aspect of economic development, liberating people to become leaders in education and many other disciplines.   (Many thanks to Sally & Michael Medved for sharing this inspiring information.) 

Gilder demonstrates that capitalism is not a zero sum game, that when one wins, others win too, that achievement has a positive ripple effect, blessing everyone.  However, envy and resentment and an orientation that views achievement as a take away from others leads to an embrace of egalitarianism, the collectivist impulse, which kills wealth by spreading it, spreads misery instead, leaving everyone in a losing situation.

The miracle of Israel’s achievements inspires those  who cheer achievement while it kindles resentment and hatred in other quarters.

Excerpt from review in the N.Y. Post:

The real issue is between admiration of achievement versus envy and resentment of it. (link to full review)

Israel today concentrates the genius of the Jews. Obscured by the usual media coverage of the “war-torn” Middle East, Israel’s rarely celebrated feats of commercial, scientific, and technological creativity climax the Jews’ twentieth-century saga of triumph over tragedy. Today tiny Israel, with its population of 7.23 million, five and one-half million Jewish, stands behind only the United States in technological contributions. In per-capita innovation, Israel dwarfs all nations. The forces of civilization in the world continue to feed upon the quintessential wealth of mind epitomized by Israel.”

Jews do not teachkids to be suicide bombers, hijack planes, bomb civilians, attack Olympic athletes, blow up embassies, destroy churches, behead people, traffic in slaves, declare war on the entire western world, or otherwise terrorize people.  Maybe Muslims should focus more on education and achievement instead of blaming everyone else for their problems.
