Michael Walzer in Exodus and Revolution:

We still believe, or many of us do, what the Exodus first taught about the meaning and possibility of politics in its proper form: first, that wherever you live, it is probably Egypt; second, that there is a better place, a world more attractive, a promised land; and third, that ‘the way to the land is through wilderness.’ There is no way to get from here to there except by joining together and marching.

Chag sameach to all.
