Political Essays collected by Oded Goldreich

Essays related to the academia have been moved to a designated webpage [click here].

On this page I intend to post some politically-related essays that I liked (and have obtained an e-version of). Unless stated otherwise, the essays are in Hebrew.

Let me end with a nice quote of Emile Habiby: We, politicians, realize that sighing, like swearing, does not make any difference. Hence, our action must spring from reality, no matter how painful it is, to move it forward, not backward, towards a possible normative change, not a reckless, unfeasible one. Nevertheless, despite our realism, can we prevent humans from sighing, and the oppressed from swearing?
