What to say about the death of a major Jewish public figure, and human bulwark against encroaching fascism, on erev Rosh Hashanah? We can not function like this, as a society.

“...luxury always comes at someone else’s expense. One of the many advantages of civilization is that one doesn’t generally have to see that, if one doesn’t wish. You’re free to enjoy its benefits without troubling your conscience.”

Ancillary Justice (by Ann Leckie)
