Who Needs the KGB When You Have Facebook?

Watch The Important Videos Below!

This is an important document that everyone MUST read. It was written about Eben Moglen, who's the guy giving the lecture in this must see video about "The Inevitable Problems of Technology: World Surveillance and the Totalitarian Technocracy."

Essentially, he is touching on the topics that I cover here and here. These same problems were the focus of a documentary called "the Net" which was about the problems of technology, the Unabomber, and the Internet. You can view that documentary here.

By the way, you can watch a video below that shows the links between Facebook and the intelligence community. These same links exist between other Silicon Valley companies too, especially Google, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Oracle, Microsoft, Wikipedia, Yahoo, Apple, LinkedIn and even Yelp.

All of these sites provide excellent platforms for the intelligence community to acquire vast amounts of data on you for data-mining purposes.  As I have pointed out previously, there has always been a strong link between Silicon Valley and the intelligence community. This is not exactly controversial, it is just that so few people know it ... and they would like to keep it that way.

The Little Known Connections Between the Talmud, Judaism, and Racism Against Blacks

“The modern Jew is the product of the Talmud.”

— Michael Rodkinson, in preface of Babylonian Talmud, page XI.
The videos below might also explain why the black JEWS do not have a Talmud! The Talmud is not the Bible nor the Old Testament. This is why Jesus was against these people. Just like the quote above says, see here for how all modern day Jews are a product of the Talmud. (Unless they are Karaites or Beta Israel Jews, which is an extremely small group of people.) For previous videos on a similar subject matter, see here for posts about the Talmud, see here for connections between Judaism and the slave trade, see here for a collection of posts about the problems with Judaism and the state of Israel that are rarely talked about or made public.

Almost Everything Israel Tells you is a Lie! #Coexist

Please click on the video below to watch it. Also see here, here, here and here. Do you know that the state of Israel actually has the hubris to call themselves the most "moral" military in the world? Can you believe that? It's crazy. It would be an absolutely insane stretch for the United States to call itself that, that's why they never do. See here, this is how nuts these people are. They are claiming to be the most moral army in the world when Israel is the only country in the world to automatically prosecute children in military courts that lack basic safeguards for a fair trial.

It gets even better, Israel doesn't even have a constitution, so how can they give a crap about free speech? They don't! That's why they do this and why they are trying to get other countries to shut up about what they are doing.  Even more amazing, the United States has made it a part of their foreign policy to go around fighting "anti-Semitism." #Coexist

Jesus: Political Insurrectionist: The Truth

The story of Jesus is similar to the narrative of Spartacus. Jesus was a political revolutionary that came to free the slaves and the oppressed. This is why he was crucified. See here for more about Jesus; history's forgotten Braveheart.

This is the reason the "Winter Festival" is being emphasized in the Gospel of John and why they are connecting the birth of Christ in the Gospel of Luke to the revolt of Judas of Galilee referred to in the Book of Acts. They are telling you what the traditional idea of the birth of Christ really is. It is about revolt. Christmas is really about freeing the slaves. See here for more about psychopaths and organized stalking.

Jesus and Judas of Galilee have God or TRUTH alone as their ruler. Judas of Galilee and Jesus both have a passion for liberty. Meaning, they do not acknowledge corrupt rulers on this planet as their God, rulers or leaders. Jesus says: "My kingdom is not of this world." and "Judgment will come because the ruler of this world has already been judged" and “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but the sword.”

Reading Minds and Influencing Human Behavior With Neural Dust

See similar articles to this one here, here, and here. This is technology that intelligence agencies and organized crime currently have and are using against the public. For other articles on this topic, please see here. See here for more about DARPA smart dust. See here for more about the DARPA Artificial Intelligence Control Grid. Also see here and here for biowarfare.

UC Berkeley engineers have built the first dust-sized, wireless sensors that can be implanted in the body, bringing closer the day when a Fitbit-like device could monitor internal nerves, muscles or organs in real time.

Wireless, battery-less implantable sensors could improve brain control of prosthetics, avoiding wires that go through the skull. (UC Berkeley video by Roxanne Makasdjian and Stephen McNally)
Because these batteryless sensors could also be used to stimulate nerves and muscles, the technology also opens the door to “electroceuticals” to treat disorders such as epilepsy or to stimulate the immune system or tamp down inflammation.

The so-called neural dust, which the team implanted in the muscles and peripheral nerves of rats, is unique in that ultrasound is used both to power and read out the measurements. Ultrasound technology is already well-developed for hospital use, and ultrasound vibrations can penetrate nearly anywhere in the body, unlike radio waves, the researchers say.

“I think the long-term prospects for neural dust are not only within nerves and the brain, but much broader,“ said Michel Maharbiz, an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences and one of the study’s two main authors. “Having access to in-body telemetry has never been possible because there has been no way to put something super tiny super-deep. But now I can take a speck of nothing and park it next to a nerve or organ, your GI tract or a muscle, and read out the data.“

Maharbiz, neuroscientist Jose Carmena, a professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences and a member of the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, and their colleagues will report their findings in the August 3 issue of the journal Neuron.

The sensors, which the researchers have already shrunk to a 1 millimeter cube – about the size of a large grain of sand – contain a piezoelectric crystal that converts ultrasound vibrations from outside the body into electricity to power a tiny, on-board transistor that is in contact with a nerve or muscle fiber. A voltage spike in the fiber alters the circuit and the vibration of the crystal, which changes the echo detected by the ultrasound receiver, typically the same device that generates the vibrations. The slight change, called backscatter, allows them to determine the voltage.

Motes sprinkled thoughout the body

In their experiment, the UC Berkeley team powered up the passive sensors every 100 microseconds with six 540-nanosecond ultrasound pulses, which gave them a continual, real-time readout. They coated the first-generation motes – 3 millimeters long, 1 millimeter high and 4/5 millimeter thick – with surgical-grade epoxy, but they are currently building motes from biocompatible thin films which would potentially last in the body without degradation for a decade or more.

The sensor mote contains a piezoelectric crystal (silver cube) plus a simple electronic circuit that responds to the voltage across two electrodes to alter the backscatter from ultrasound pulses produced by a transducer outside the body. The voltage across the electrodes can be determined by analyzing the ultrasound backscatter.

While the experiments so far have involved the peripheral nervous system and muscles, the neural dust motes could work equally well in the central nervous system and brain to control prosthetics, the researchers say. Today’s implantable electrodes degrade within 1 to 2 years, and all connect to wires that pass through holes in the skull. Wireless sensors – dozens to a hundred – could be sealed in, avoiding infection and unwanted movement of the electrodes.

“The original goal of the neural dust project was to imagine the next generation of brain-machine interfaces, and to make it a viable clinical technology,” said neuroscience graduate student Ryan Neely. “If a paraplegic wants to control a computer or a robotic arm, you would just implant this electrode in the brain and it would last essentially a lifetime.”

In a paper published online in 2013, the researchers estimated that they could shrink the sensors down to a cube 50 microns on a side – about 2 thousandths of an inch, or half the width of a human hair. At that size, the motes could nestle up to just a few nerve axons and continually record their electrical activity.

“The beauty is that now, the sensors are small enough to have a good application in the peripheral nervous system, for bladder control or appetite suppression, for example,“ Carmena said. “The technology is not really there yet to get to the 50-micron target size, which we would need for the brain and central nervous system. Once it’s clinically proven, however, neural dust will just replace wire electrodes. This time, once you close up the brain, you’re done.“

The team is working now to miniaturize the device further, find more biocompatible materials and improve the surface transceiver that sends and receives the ultrasounds, ideally using beam-steering technology to focus the sounds waves on individual motes. They are now building little backpacks for rats to hold the ultrasound transceiver that will record data from implanted motes.

Diagram showing the components of the sensor. The entire device is covered in a biocompatible gel.

They’re also working to expand the motes’ ability to detect non-electrical signals, such as oxygen or hormone levels.

“The vision is to implant these neural dust motes anywhere in the body, and have a patch over the implanted site send ultrasonic waves to wake up and receive necessary information from the motes for the desired therapy you want,” said Dongjin Seo, a graduate student in electrical engineering and computer sciences. “Eventually you would use multiple implants and one patch that would ping each implant individually, or all simultaneously.”

Ultrasound vs radio

Maharbiz and Carmena conceived of the idea of neural dust about five years ago, but attempts to power an implantable device and read out the data using radio waves were disappointing. Radio attenuates very quickly with distance in tissue, so communicating with devices deep in the body would be difficult without using potentially damaging high-intensity radiation.

A sensor implanted on a peripheral nerve is powered and interrogated by an ultrasound transducer. The backscatter signal carries information about the voltage across the sensor’s two electrodes. The ‘dust’ mote was pinged every 100 microseconds with six 540-nanosecond ultrasound pulses.

Marharbiz hit on the idea of ultrasound, and in 2013 published a paper with Carmena, Seo and their colleagues describing how such a system might work. “Our first study demonstrated that the fundamental physics of ultrasound allowed for very, very small implants that could record and communicate neural data,” said Maharbiz. He and his students have now created that system.

“Ultrasound is much more efficient when you are targeting devices that are on the millimeter scale or smaller and that are embedded deep in the body,” Seo said. “You can get a lot of power into it and a lot more efficient transfer of energy and communication when using ultrasound as opposed to electromagnetic waves, which has been the go-to method for wirelessly transmitting power to miniature implants”

“Now that you have a reliable, minimally invasive neural pickup in your body, the technology could become the driver for a whole gamut of applications, things that today don’t even exist,“ Carmena said.

Other co-authors of the Neuron paper are graduate student Konlin Shen, undergraduate Utkarsh Singhal and UC Berkeley professors Elad Alon and Jan Rabaey. The work was supported by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency of the Department of Defense.

Dawn of Human 2.0? Nanobot Implants Connect Our Brains to the Internet and Give Us 'God-Like' Super-Intelligence

The technology that is featured in the article below is in the possession of intelligence agencies and organized crime and currently being used against the public. Not in 2030 like it mentions in the article below. But, absolutely 100% RIGHT NOW! See here and here. 

Maybe he means that by 2030 all of humanity will be hooked up. As pointed out here, this is the direction the world is going. We will all be a part of a gigantic world brain with everyone under constant surveillance, every moment of our lives will be recorded. You will be under thought monitoring for potential thoughts that deviate from the mean. Unless you know how to get this technology out of your body and brain or block it.  This is already happening because intelligence agencies and organized crime have this technology and are using it.

They fail to mention some of the negative aspects of this technology in the article below. Like for instance, mind control, neuroplasticity of the brain and behavior and personality changes. They can also create pain in your body, injure you or kill you. They can literally give you concussions, cancer, brain damage, heart attacks or a stroke. Obviously, the youth, the elderly and the unhealthy are at the greatest risk. If this isn't enough, they can also shoot you with classified space-based weapons. (See here and here.) They have access to your brain, your EEG readout and your eyes and ears. In other words, they can see out your eyes and hear out your ears. See this old clip of a scientist looking out of a cat's eyes. What they have now is even more advanced. 

See here and here for more about the ethical considerations of brain-computer interfaces and nanotechnology.   For other articles on this topic, please see here. See here for more about DARPA Smartdust. See here for more about the DARPA Artificial Intelligence Control Grid.

  • A computer scientist says nanobots could connect our brains to the Cloud
  • This allow people to back up their memories and communicate by thought
  • It could also help to expand human creativity and emotions, he claims

The human brain could be enhanced by tiny robotic implants that connect to cloud-based computer networks to give us 'God-like' abilities, according to a leading computer scientist.

Ray Kurzweil, an author and inventor who describes himself as a futurist who works on Google's machine learning project, said such technology could be the next step in human evolution.
He predicted that by the 2030s, humans will be using nanobots capable of tapping into our neocortex and connecting us directly to the world around us.

Tiny robots (illustrated above) that have the capacity to connect our 
brains directly to the internet could help to give humans God-like
abilities, expanding our capacity for emotions and creativity

This will allow people to send emails and photos directly to each other's brains while also backing up our thoughts and memories. (See here and here for how synthetic telepathy is possible now.) 

Speaking at an event organized by the Singularity University at Moffett Field in California, which he helped found and TheWorldPost, Mr Kurzweil said they could also expand our capacity for emotions and creativity.

He said this ability to expand our brains with the information held in the cloud will combine with the power of artificial intelligence to make humans more 'God-like'. Mr Kurzweil said: 'There is beauty, love and creativity and intelligence in the world, and it all comes from the neocortex.

'We are going to be able to expand the neocortex and so we are going to become more God-like.
'We are going to add additional levels of abstraction and create more profound means of expression so we are going to be more musical, we are going to be funnier, we are going to be sexier and be better at expression more loving sentiments.'

He added that it may be possible in the future to use the extra brain power provided by the cloud to multiply human intelligence.

He said in the 2030s if he met Google co-founder Larry Page, for example, in the street, the technology could provide some assistance.

He said: 'So I'm walking along, and I see Larry Page coming, and I think, 'I better think of something clever to say.'

But my 300 million modules in my neocortex isn't going to cut it. I need a billion in two seconds.
'I'll be able to access that in the cloud -- just like I can multiply intelligence with my smartphone thousands fold today.'

DNA already has the potential to transform the computing world by recreating living cells into data storage devices. Now scientists have gone one step further and used DNA ‘nanobots’ inside living cockroaches that open up to deliver drugs.

The nanorobots, which can function like living computers, were created using DNA strands that fold and unfold like origami. 
Bioengineers hope DNA nanobots could carry out complex programs that could one day be used to diagnose or treat diseases. 

Daniel Levner, a bioengineer at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University and his colleagues at Bar Ilan University in Ramat-Gan, Israel, made the nanobots by exploiting the binding properties of DNA. 
When DNA comes across a certain kind of protein, it unravels into two different strands, according to a report by Sarah Spickernell at New Scientist.

The concept of nanomachines being inserted into the human body has been around in science fiction for decades. See here for a video clip from a movie. In the TV series Star Trek tiny molecular robots called nanites were used to help repair damaged cells in the body. Mr Kurzeweil said similar robots could be built out of DNA and injected into the brain. Last year researchers injected packages of DNA that would unfurl under certain conditions into the bodies of cockroaches.

The DNA origami was described as being the first step towards building basic robots that perform logical operations when it encounters a specific protein – much like a 1 or a 0 from a silicon microchip. The more DNA robots injected into an animal, the greater the complexity can be achieved, and the researchers from the Bar Ilan University are now working to scale up the 'computing power' so that it rivals old 8-bit computers from the 1980s like a Commodore 64 or an Atari 800.

Scientists at Rice University recently demonstrated a single-molecule 'car', which had buckyballs of carbon for wheels and could be controlled by changes in temperature. 

However, some scientists have warned the effectiveness of such devices will be limited.
Most nano-machines are likely to find more use as ways of delivering drugs to specific cells in the body.

Professor James Friend, a mechanical engineer at the University of California San Diego told TheWorldPost that getting approval to inject these into humans may be difficult.
He said would be a great deal of concern about injecting 'swimming mysterious things in your head and leaving them there'.

Other leading scientists and technology experts have expressed fears at the growing use of Artificial Intelligence and called for tighter controls to be placed on its development.
But Mr Kurzeweil said nanobots could also help people create realistic avatars with the aid of artificial intelligence.

He said: In the 2030s, we will be able to send nanobots into living people's brains and extract memories of people who have passed away. Then you can really make them very realistic.'


For more on Artificial Intelligence, go here

Artificial intelligence has the potential to be as dangerous to mankind as nuclear weapons, a leading pioneer of the technology has claimed.

Professor Stuart Russell, a computer scientist who has lead research on artificial intelligence, fears humanity might be 'driving off a cliff' with the rapid development of AI.

He fears the technology could too easily be exploited for use by the military in weapons, putting them under the control of AI systems. His views echo those of people like Elon Musk who have warned recently about the dangers of artificial intelligence.

Professor Stephen Hawking also joined a group of leading experts to sign an open letter warning of the need for safeguards to ensure AI has a positive impact on mankind. Dr Stuart Armstrong, from Oxford University's Future of Humanity Institute, has also predicted that intelligent robots could soon take over the running of countries. 

He believes it's a race against time to develop safeguards around artificial intelligence research before robots outwit us. Professor Hawking has said: 'The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.'

Former DEA Agent Exposes US Government’s Role in Cocaine Epidemic

After watching the video, read the article below, also see here for a previous article on the topic of the CIA and drugs. 

by Isaac Davis

There is an epidemic of cocaine, heroin, and other drug use in America, and many other drugs are being shipped into the US in greater numbers than ever before. Are the United States government and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to blame for flooding American communities with cocaine in the 1970’s by covertly supporting the Latin American drug trade?
Many retired employees of the CIA, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and police, in addition to numerous investigative journalists, believe this to be the truth, and that various U.S. government and CIA officials should be held accountable and even tried.
A 25-year veteran of the DEA and author of the book, Triangle of Death, Michael Levine claims the CIA played a key role in allowing the trafficking of drugs, particularly cocaine, into the U.S. from Latin America. Acting as a deep undercover agent for many years of his life, Levine found through first-hand experience that the CIA knew that drugs were being smuggled onto the streets of U.S. cities but did nothing about it. He claims that the Agency even leaked undercover DEA operations to the drug cartels.
Other DEA agents have made similar claims.
Former DEA head John Lawn, testified that Oliver North, Marine Corps lieutenant colonel who in the 1980’s served on the National Security Council staff at the White House, and other officials, “created a privatized contra network that attracted drug traffickers looking for cover for their operations, then turned a blind eye to repeated reports of drug smuggling related to the contras, and actively worked with known drug smugglers such as Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega.” Lawn swore under oath that North himself had prematurely leaked a DEA undercover operation, jeopardizing agents’ lives, for political advantage in an upcoming Congressional vote on aid to the contras. (Source)
Oliver North, of course, denied any knowledge of the contras involvement in the drug trafficking trade. During the Iran-Contra Congressional Hearing in 1987, when allegations first began, North stated during his opening statement:
Some said I was second only in power to the President of the United States, and others that I condoned drug trafficking to generate funds for the contras, or that I personally ordered assassinations, or that I was conducting my own foreign policy. It has even been suggested that I was the personal confidant of the President of the United States. These, and many other stories, are patently untrue.” (Source)
On the Fox News political program Hannity and Colmes, North reclaimed:
“The fact is nobody in the government of the United States, going all the way back to the earliest days of this under Jimmy Carter, ever had anything to do with running drugs to support the Nicaraguan resistance. Nobody in the government of the United States. I will stand on that to my grave.” (Source)
Levine refers to North’s diary, which was not presented in front of the Congressional Hearing. North’s diaries, e-mail, and memos were made public by the National Security Archive much later, in February 2004. The documents revealed:
Mr. North’s diary entries, from the reporter’s notebooks he kept in those years, noting multiple reports of drug smuggling among the contras. A Washington Post investigation published on 22 October 1994 found no evidence he had relayed these reports to the DEA or other law enforcement authorities.
Memos from North aide Robert Owen to Mr. North recounting drug-running “indiscretions” among the contras, warning that a known drug-smuggling airplane was delivering taxpayer-funded “humanitarian aid” overseen by Mr. North.
Mr. North’s White House e-mails recounting his efforts to spring from prison a Honduran general who could “spill the beans” on the secret contra war, even though the Justice Department termed the Honduran a “narcoterrorist” for his involvement in cocaine smuggling and an assassination plot.
Mr. North’s White House e-mails and diary entries on his personal meeting on 22 September 1986 with Noriega, following up Noriega’s offer to “take care of” the Sandinista leadership if the White House would help “clean up his image.” (Source)
What is it about the government and its agents and employees that they can lie to us with impunity, but we risk being sent to jail if we lie to them?
Then there was Gary Webb, an investigative reporter for the San Jose Mercury News and author of Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Cocaine Explosion.
Nearly a decade after the Iran-Contra Congressional Hearing, through a series of articles published in 1996, Webb created uproar in Southern California communities when he also alleged that the CIA had connections to a drug ring reaching into California.
In his published works, Webb alleged that the CIA and many U.S. government officials, including Oliver North, were fully aware that the contras were funneling cocaine into the U.S. He believed that the ties between the two organizations were so close, the contras could be called a CIA ‘subsidiary’ due to the frequency of their meetings with CIA operatives. Webb’s articles were criticized, his career destroyed, and he became the target of government retribution. His death in 2004 was officially deemed a suicide.
Oliver North is now a regular presence in mainstream media on the Fox News Channel documentary series, “War Stories with Oliver North,” and other appearances as an expert pundit. The drug war has certainly taken a quantum leap since the 1970’s, and has become a regular feature of our lives, but as many people around the world struggle for its end, the truth about its inception continues to be exposed.

Karl Marx a Jew Himself ---- What He Thought About Judaism

See here for a previous post about the founder of Zionism, Theodore Herzl. Essentially,  Karl Marx argues in his writings that, “In the final analysis, the emancipation of the Jews is the emancipation of mankind from Judaism.” Larry Ray explains, “Marx’s position is essentially an assimilationist one in which there is no room within emancipated humanity for Jews as a separate ethnic or cultural identity.” Dennis Fischman puts it, “Jews, Marx seems to be saying, can only become free when, as Jews, they no longer exist.” Karl Marx also saw Christianity as an evolutionary step up from Judaism.

What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money.…. Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of man – and turns them into commodities…. The bill of exchange is the real god of the Jew. His god is only an illusory bill of exchange…. The chimerical nationality of the Jew is the nationality of the merchant, of the man of money in general. -Karl Marx

The Law of the Jungle & the Jews

See here for a previous article about Judaism, see here for another article that asks the important question --- "is Zionism and Jewish nationalism a political cult?" See here for a whole collection of articles about Judaism, Israel and Zionism. 

By Christopher Bollyn

"The Law for the Wolves" is very much like the law for the Jews.

Now this is the law of the jungle, as old and as true as the sky,
And the wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die.

As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk, the law runneth forward and back;
For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.
- “The Law for the Wolves” by Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) 

Having lived on a Zionist kibbutz (Afikim) in the Jordan Valley, I learned as a teenager about Zionism directly from people who had been raised with notions of the Jewish collective and Jewish nationalism.  It did not take long for this observant outsider to realize that Zionism is nothing more than Jewish tribalism, although “the tribe” is not really a tribe in the true sense of the word. The Jews that I met on the kibbutz and in Israel came from every corner of the world and really had nothing in common except their belief that somehow they belonged to the same tribe, or perhaps one of the other lost tribes of Israel.

It is pretty absurd how deep that belief goes. I remember asking my girlfriend’s father, the history teacher on the kibbutz, which tribe he thought he came from. I remember him saying that he thought he came from the tribe of Ben. He was a fair-skinned and red-headed “Jew” named Izi Merimsky whose parents had migrated to Palestine from somewhere in the Pale of Settlement of Western Russia. 

There were, on the other hand, families on the kibbutz from Yemen, Morocco, Argentina, Iraq, India, Poland, and America. They were all very different, but they all seemed to operate on the belief that somehow they were from the same tribe and that loyalty to the tribe was all that mattered. The laws of the state and the kibbutz all reinforced the notion that loyalty to the tribe was the supreme good, while individualism was something of a foreign concept.

I was not a member of the tribe and that made me an outsider, something I understood very clearly from my very first days on the kibbutz. I was an 18-year-old Christian American wandering around the Middle East who had migrated to Palestine and Israel from snowy Tehran, which meant a long journey in the middle of winter across Iran, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, and the occupied West Bank.

To understand Zionism one needs to understand how Zionists view Jews as members of a collective. Collective in this sense means people acting as a group. A good source to understand what is meant by the Jewish collective is the Jewish Agency for Israel, the central organ of the Zionist establishment, which has a webpage for Jewish teachers called, “Activity: Who are the Jews?”

The following are extracts from that webpage in which teachers are encouraged to discuss Jewish identity with their students:

The aim of this activity is to provide space for the students to define the entire Jewish collective of which they are a part…

Write a separate list of the things that the students think would take them out of the collective, and discuss it. Is it, in fact, possible to take yourself out of the Jewish collective? Does conversion take you out? Does being a ‘Jew for Jesus’ take you out? Does acting in a treacherous way against other Jews take you out? Does acting in an immoral way take you out?

Now hand out the following piece for the group’s consideration. It was written in the mid-1870s by Peretz Smolenskin, a pre-Zionist ideologist of Jewish nationalism who had an enormous effect in the Eastern Europe of the late-nineteenth century. We have chosen Smolenskin because he deals directly with the issues that we have mentioned, not because we feel that the students should necessarily accept his position.

His essential argument, presented in this piece, was that the Jews must continue to see themselves as a nation open to Jews of all religious outlooks. Religious observance was a criterion neither for belonging to the Jewish collective nor for being seen to live a Jewish life.

The essential criterion for a Jewish life was acceptance of the nation. Only a Jew who sinned against his/her nation should be seen as outside the collective and not living a Jewish life.

Extracts from Peretz Smolenskin’s “It Is Time to Plant”

The Jewish people has outlived all others because it has always regarded itself as a people - a spiritual nation. Without exception, its sages and writers, its prophets and the authors of its prayers, have always called it a people…

Thinking people understand that this unity is the secret of our strength and vitality. But such unity can only come from a fraternal feeling, from a national sentiment that makes everyone born a Jew declare: I am a son of this people…

No matter what his sins against religion, every Jew belongs to his people as long as he does not betray it…

It seems like being a Jew is a lot like being a wolf. Maybe that is where the name came from. As Rudyard Kipling wrote in “The Law for the Wolves", "…the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack."
