AN ISRAELI SPEAKS OUR SHARED STORY

The activist in this video describes how it is for the citizens of Israel and the similarities between there and here are striking. "The assumption that we live in democracies" and "The hijacking of the scene by the power mongers" apply equally to people of both countries. In Israel as in the United States, the few dictate the agenda for the many without first determining the will of those they represent and then continuing at our direction. Likewise, there as here it has become nearly impossible to think and act outside the established body of thought and ideas that guides a society and perpetuates the status quo of the ruling class.
