Exodus, Collectivism, and the USA

A Passover plea: Don't tread on E Pluribus Unum - On Faith at washingtonpost.com:
"With Passover on the horizon, Americans can look to the Jewish founding narrative -- the Exodus story -- for perspectives on freedom and nation building. Interestingly, the Exodus from Egypt is framed not in terms of the individual's right to freedom from oppression (though that is certainly implicit) but rather in terms of the freedom to work together to build a society of equity, of justice, and of collective social responsibility."
