A Question Of Leadership!

We have looked at the question of leadership in past articles. Sadly nothing has happened to change our thoughts on todays leaders. Current leadership in the West is silent, calm and content while they oversee national disintegration, endemic estrangement of their young, the alienation from traditional thought, the abyss of cultural ignorance and the growth of perverted ideas. Societys leaders are overseeing an epedemic of spiritual loss of identity, rejection of cultural values. leaving in its wake millions empty of meaning. This is a catastrophic problem for the West and its future viability in the world order.

Everything of meaning is rapidly slipping through its fingers, and its leaders have no credible answers to address the societal disaster on their doorstep. Nor do they have the moral strength or the desire to lead their peoples out of harms way. These insipid leaders are awash in their own moral bankruptcy and have no plan in preserving what is worthwhile in the life of their nations.

Quite the contrary the West is plagued with a crisis of leadership that neglects to initiate practical steps to save Western culture. Should they continue down this path the West is doomed.

Its unfashionable today to talk of the indominatability of the human spirit when discussing leadership. We have forgotten that leadership style cannot be separated from a person’s character. Essence precedes function; what we do arises from who we are. Unfortunately todays leaders are not equipped to join battle with the spiritual, moral, and philosophical war taking place in Western culture. Its a battle that involves anarchy, terrorism, warped world views, and twisted behaviors.

Such a state of affairs calls for a certain kind of leadership. One that still believes in destiny and in particular the destiny of ones nation and whats good in Western civilization.

In todays multicultural predominance of Western society, a growing dislike for its values is questioning the Wests right to a future. Under relentless attack from the doctrinaires of equivalency, where every society is of equal value, simply by being, and beware any single civilization dare assert itself as superior in any way.

If the West is going to survive it will need leaders who know and respect their historical heritage and believe its worth fighting for. Otherwise its lights out!

Yosef Yigal Drever and Sylvia Drever co-founded Achdut HaLev in 2006 to reach out to the Jewish community's around the world providing support in learning Torah and promoting the 'Return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.' Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)
