On the internet there are several videos about Shaike Paikov's song "Eretz, eretz". Unfortunately, my favorite video seems to have disappeared: It showed an extract from a TV show named "Kakh haya" (So it was) or so: Ilanit was singing in front of hundreds of Israeli soldiers at some navy base. There was also another video which showed nothing but photographs of the landscape and not a single human being (except the voice of the male singer). The latter one probably matches quite well the mindset of those who have stopped believing that social life can be more than a set of constraints. Former German chancellor Helmut Schmidt once said: "People who have visions, shall see a doctor" ("Wer Visionen hat, soll zum Arzt gehen.") and according to a text I just found, it was directed against his fellow party member and also former chancellor Willy Brandt. From my personal experience, I find people who want to shape a people or society according to their visions as somehow dangerous. I realize that I'm even getting slightly afraid when I hear German government politicians present what from their point of view is necessary and which ambitions "we" have regarding the future. But it's clear that I also have ideas even concerning the state. Over the last years I have been submitting both opposition but also suggestions concerning political projects to internet platforms as well as to politicians of different parties and ministries.
