|The War, Otto Dix, 1932||The Pillars of Society, George Grosz, 1926|
Turning from the most concrete and immediate to the most general and long-range, I call for moving from a soceity organized according to the rational of capital-gain (i.e., a Capitalist soceity) to a soceity organized for the benefit of mankind (i.e., a Socialist soceity). In the short range, the neo-conservative attack on the welfare-state and organized labor has to be blocked, and social (i.e., democratic) regulation of the economy has to be promoted.
And in the meanwhile (as well as in the latter days), I call for safe-guarding of human rights. In particular, I call for the de-militarization of the Israeli Society, abolishing all forms of discrimination against Israeli Arabs, Women, and Gay/Lesbians, providing fair treatment of foreign workers, separation of State and Religious Affairs, and providing a critical analysis of (mass and elite) Culture.
A concrete suggestion:
(see facebook site),
the only political party in the Israeli parliament
that is committed to all these views.
