Poland's Fight and the Essence of Judaism - Korzybski's Response to the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising (An excerpt from Korzybski: A Biography)

In honor of the fighters of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, which began 70 years ago in April 1943, I'm publishing the first few pages of Chapter 55 of Korzybski: A Biography. This section deals with Korzybski's 1943 response to the fate of Poles and Polish Jewry under the iron heel of the Nazi tyranny:  Poland's_Fight_and_the_Essence_of_Judaism

Korzybski's comments on the "time-binding" Jews vs. the "space-binding" Nazis attest to the advantage of being unbound to "homeland" territorial politics. As Timothy Leary said, "Politics should be argued on all fours." Or consider the words of Nietzsche: "Power makes stupid." Hence the value of the "Wandering Jew."
