… All the worth which the human being possesses, all spiritual reality, he possesses only through the State.
OK. So it was not Rabbi Kook. But it could have been.
(Technically, he appears to say something like this in one place, although… but I’m not going to go into it.)
He further states:
- In the history of the World, only those peoples can come under our notice which form a state.
- The State is the Divine Idea as it exists on Earth.
- Those who found states are justified, meritorious heroes, however “rude” these “may have” been.
And it gets worse.
