‘‘Politics needs a reference point outside of politics,’’ argues Hebrew University religious philosopher Moshe Halbertal. ‘‘It needs values, it needs facts, and it needs leaders who respect that there is a sacred domain of decisions that will never be used to promote political gain, only the common good.’’

Public trust is eroded, adds Halbertal, when people feel that this notion of the common good doesn’t exist because everything has become politics. That describes the United States today.
