Where Judaism Differed: An Inquiry into the Distinctiveness of Judaism https://www.amazon.com/dp/0876689578/ref=cm_sw_r_apa_b6mKyb2A0NMV2
AH Silver was one of the few Reform Rabbis whom I "admired" to an extent
His Book - Where Judaism Differed - was a classic in its time
Where Judaism differs TODAY from the politically correct zeitgeist can be reduced IMHO to a simple point of departure
Does justice INCLUDE
V'Dol lo sehedar b'reevo
Does it exclude it?
EG Affirmative action,
Do you judge on merit or by race, Colour creed, national origin or economic class?
Same with many crimes.
Same for illegal immigrants
Do you tip the scales of JUSTICE to favour the disadvantaged?
The Torah says "not in a court of law"
It's OK to privately give Tzedaka. But can merits be overlooked in favour of the disadvantaged in public policy? In the court system?
And if being disadvantaged becomes an advantage
Will that foster a society of "victims"?
