The Rav mentioned at the beginning of the lecture that it was because of its wealth that Mitzrayim became depraved. Does the Rav see a parallel in that with what’s happening in America?
This man is quoting me as saying that Egypt became decayed because of its great wealth. Certainly; there’s no question about that – it happened to all nations. The question is, is that happening to America today?
Absolutely. America is on the skids. America is going downhill rapidly. It’s becoming so rotten and corrupt from the top to the bottom – morally and everything else – only because of too much prosperity. At one time all Americans believed in Hashem. I can testify to that – I remember when even politicians spoke about G-O-D; even politicians spoke about the hereafter. I remember that.
But today they are so corrupt that the word Hashem is no longer mentioned by anybody. And therefore Hakodosh Boruch Hu now is treating America like He treated all the old empires that went down into the dust. Unless the people would try to get together to try to save America now and to throw out all the liberals. The liberals are the poison that’s ruining America. If the people can wake up in the last moment before it’s too late, then maybe they can save America. But America is right now on the way down the drain.
