Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Kol Nidrei, which means "all vows", nullifies the binding nature of such promises in advance. One declares all future vows and promises invalid, by declaring that all vows are "absolved, remitted, cancelled, declared null and void, not in force of in effect."

All future vows and promises are invalid?

Wow, interesting prayer...
