I'm posting this here because I envisage it being more about spirituality/religion than politics.
I've been reading Martin Buber and in particular a book called Paths in Utopia which is pretty socialist, I started reading Buber because I'd pretty much read all of Eric Fromm, Fromm is very influenced by his Jewish background and like Buber also with socialist leanings (Fromm considered it the latest in a line of vehicles including Judahism and Christianity what he considered the divinity of humanity).
There are lots of examples of Jewish communities and communitarianism naturally leaning towards socialistic and anarchistic ideas, I think Chomsky shows the same influences as Fromm and Buber but in his interviews he's consistently said he's an enlightenment thinker instead, there's a great deal of it is a legacy of spirituality and religion but also practical experience too. Having to remain independent of government or wealth or the establishment because of either persecution or practical seperatism.
However, most of the neo-cons since before the Bush administration and definitely since have been Jewish, the politics of Israel and most of the Jewish communities internationally are not commonly depicted as having any left inclination at all.
Lots of the entries on Wiki which would have reflected the left wing history of jews like the Jewish Bund movement during the war which opposed Zionism, even before its collaborationist tendencies, have been removed.
Does anyone think that there's a politically left or right wing tendency, legacy, past or trend within Jewish religious or cultural identity? What about relative to other religious or cultural identities such as Christianity?
