Are we actors with masks? : our ability to assimilate has been too effective for our own good -- Are we shattered into pieces? : despite what anti-semites have said, our infighting and historical circumstances have never allowed unity nor a unified leadership -- Are we a nation or a religion? : our people are not a religion, nor a nation, nor an ethnic group, nor a race -- Do we have our own set of character traits? : yes, but sometimes we use them and sometimes we abuse them -- Is money our god? : the slander, lies, and misunderstandings regarding Jews and money -- Why do we want to save the world? : exploring the Jewish messiah complex -- Are we excessively warm or excessively cold? : the seemingly contradictory phenomena of Jewish emotionalism and intellectualism -- Why are our people involved in idolatry? : our theocentric nature and our temptation to create and worship idols -- What is our role in the world? : our "chosen" status is a demanding responsibility to be the priests of the world -- How does our Jewishness influence our thinking process? : Marx, Freud, Einstein, and the Jewish search for unifying principles -- How does anti-semitism affect other people? : the correlation between a country's health and how well it treats its Jews -- What will become of the Jewish people?
