    Good luck to them but they should also remember the kibbutz is great for a small developing country but once it reaches a certain level of development the movement will not survive. In the early year of independence in Israel the kibbutzim were essential for keeping the country fed and the kibbutz members liked th way things were. Second generation they started looking a the outside word where people had money to buy nice things whilst they owned nothing so the kibbutz stated to give them some money. Today the kibbutz is unrecogsanble, people no longer all eat together in the dining hall, thy all get paid and sallery is based on qualifications, If you can afford it you can now even buy the house you live in so there is certainly no more equality in the kibbutz which was once the only place socialism worked as it was envisioned but even there in time capitalism won the day. In Sudan I hope the kibbutz can work although in an era where there are so many nice things we would like to buy it will be a large obstacle to overcome, equality Is a nice idea but it goe against human nature because humans are generally selfish creatures.
