Book Description

Sept. 19 2006
If I am not for myself, who is for me?
But if I am only for myself, what am I?
And if not now, when?

Following his bestselling political memoir, the former premier of Ontario stepped back to consider the subject of responsibility in and for society. Structuring his thoughts on Rabbi Hillel’s famous questions, he explores the roles of government, business, communities and individuals in the new economic and political reality of Canada. He confronts the most basic and urgent question of our time: in this age of globalism, in this period when the gulf between rich and poor is growing, what is our responsibility to ourselves and to others?

Every successful society needs to recognize and reward individual success as well as demonstrate an organized capacity for social compassion. A successful politics will understand that pursuing both prosperity and the public good — finding the right answers to the three questions — is not easy. But the challenge must be met.

Bob Rae is a great writer and orator with a long and distinguished political career. His ideas are solid and he lays out some basic questions in this book, although doesn't really provide any answers.
