    Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. Albert Einstein

    America's future is bright, not white

    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg ‘represented an ideal of American Jewish liberalism’

    Ginsburg represented the apogee of Jewish achievement in this fraught land. As unique as she was, she also was an archetype, the epitome of what America had to offer a wandering, battered people. Born in 1933, as fascism began its brutal march across Europe and as the Depression still blanketed the world economy, Ginsburg also faced adversity at home. Her only sister died when she was very young. Her mother died just as she was set to graduate from high school.

    Women with brains and drive were excluded from power, legally considered second-class citizens, rarely allowed to even glimpse their own potential.

    But she would have none of it. Quietly but firmly, she pushed back against barriers by working harder than anyone else, supported by an amazing husband, and fortunate to come of age when being Jewish was no longer the hindrance it had been only a short time before.

    The virulent antisemitism that had plagued the United States in the immediate postwar years gradually gave way in the 1950s, as advocates used the law to break down discrimination against Jews in housing, education and employment. Ginsburg worked the same levers, doggedly seeking to turn over the laws that discriminated on the basis of sex.

    She was not a revolutionary. She worked within the system to change the system, to make it more fair and just, to extend protections to those who needed government the most.

    This was the quintessential Jewish aspect of her character. Yes, she was raised a Jew, married a Jew, belonged to a synagogue, supported Jewish causes, here and in Israel. But more than that, Ginsburg epitomized the liberal intellectual ideal that has come to characterize so many modern American Jews — grounded in the belief that American institutions will bend toward justice if presented with unassailable rational arguments, and that they can best be led in that direction from within.
