The Assassination in Israel That Worked
By Roger Cohen, Dec. 17 2015 (LINK to article)
It makes a nice change to find myself agreeing with Mr Cohen on an issue, as I do on this one.
What would help resolve the conflict between Jews and Arabs is a better understanding of the nature of the state itself, which academics, for reasons of self-interest, have not been entirely honest with us, or themselves, about.
I've developed a far more realistic understanding of the state, based on a human-evolutionary, i.e. Darwinian, perspective, which a previous generation of academics made a taboo of doing.
What such a perspective reveals is that contrary to what is widely believed, there is no such thing as a "nation state", just mercenary "patron states" deceitfully posing as nations, in order to legitimise themselves, their ruling elites and the immense power they wield and abuse.
At first I thought that Israel was perhaps an exception, but have since come to realise that it is not, which gives me added confidence in my theory, which I elaborate on in this and appended BLOGS.
