      to help the old lady across the street, to go to Temple, take out the garbage without being asked, little blessings are to some the heart of what it means to live a good life.

      To others, not so much.

      Per the Wiki:"The secondary meaning of Hebrew mitzvah, as with English "commandment," refers to a moral deed performed as a religious duty. As such, the term mitzvah has also come to express an act of human kindness. The tertiary meaning of mitzvah also refers to the fulfillment of a mitzvah"

      "Liberals support..... constitutionalism, liberal democracy, free and fair elections, human rights, capitalism, and the free exercise of religion." Wikipedia. And that's bad how?
