Cooperative isolation. Jason Sullivan describes the kibbutz movement in Israel through the lens of education. “Not unlike a church with its Sunday-school component, kibbutz schools were contained within a perspective that held that all aspects of people’s lives were part of an organic whole. Overall the kibbutz ideology was based around ‘direct democracy’ and principles of mutual aid.” Eras in Education – Israel’s Kibbutzim: Farm Life Combined with Classroom Life, March 12, 2010.
If women ruled the world. In a review of the documentary film The House of Tomorrow, Wanda Waterman addresses the historical conflict between Palestine and Israel. “The House of Tomorrow breeds optimism, oddly enough, offering a glimpse of another side of life in Palestine: the aims, aspirations, and initiatives of women on both sides of the divide who are stubbornly, and against all odds, striving for peace.” The Mindful Bard – The House of Tomorrow, November 30, 2012.
