It is to a remarkable group of men who we call the Prophets more than to any others that Western civilization owes its convictions (a) that individuals are responsible not only for their face to face dealings, but for the social structures of their society; and (2) that the future of any people depends in large part on the justice of its social order…..In abstract terms the Prophetic Principle comes to this: The prerequisite of political stability is social justice, for it is in the nature of things that injustice will not endure. Stated theologically, the point reads: God has high standards. Divinity will not put up forever with exploitation, corruption and mediocrity…..
