Micah is venerated in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. He lived and died about 3000 years ago. To my way of thinking his greatest words are these;
Michael J. Sandel is a teacher and here are his basic credentials;
Both men are exceptional. Both deal with the same subject: Is there a ‘best’ way for humans to live together? If there is what is it?
As I study them I come to two simple conclusions.

When humans concentrate on what are their obligations the world that is created stands a good chance of being beautiful.
I may be wrong and I certainly don’t claim to speak for either Micah or Sandel.
But it is what I believe.
Take care, stay obligated,
The Old Man
