Does this government want educated, innovative, capable citizens living a productive life...or what we have today? People that serve a system and are treated like cogs in a wheel. Where is the humanity in this system? - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    Is this a way to dumb and numb people into subservience? People want to work. Be creative and productive. Enjoy the fruits of their work and share the good with others. This protest is a Social one and is about community. I am proud that finally people are speaking up. Too long we have been under the thumb of the governments and one cannot tell the difference between their policies. The effects are all the same. This is why all the sectors identify with the demands of the protest.
