Watch: On America and its Destiny

Today, July 4th, is Independence Day in the United States. In the United States, there is much debate about the proper role of religion in our constitutional system, and what is the proper role for America’s to play in the world. In these Sichos the Rebbe addresses these two timely topics.

Founded on Faith

In the United States, there is much debate about the separation of government and religion.

Yet based on the spirit in which this country was founded and in which the constitution was written, government should have little trouble doing more to support the type of educational institutions that foster a belief in G-d. The results will benefit society as a whole.

On Isolationism

Isolationism is not a moral or sustainable path for the United States. A civilized nation must be built upon solid moral foundations. This means that no matter what the immediate situation may be, the country stands by its principles, even if it appears that compromising on principles could bring material gain.
