The successful Jew remains an orphan – obsessed and abscessed in soul. The Jew not only longs for success, he lunges for it. Theodor Herzl is a prehensile example. Desmond Stewart has a chapter “Lunging for success” in his book “Theodor Herzl, artist and politician.” There is no one more pathetic than a failed artist who turns to politics in desperation. Who knows how different the world would have been if Herzl – and Hitler – had succeeded in their art?
