    We are all participants in dynamic processes each of which have two possibilities: they are either integrating or disintegrating. It is possible for a person or a state to participate in both simultaneously in varying degrees. The American Civil War was a battle for the survival of one of these processes. In the North the fruits of labor were the products of free labor; in the South the fruits of labor were the products of slave labor---humans reduced to personal possessions (chattel)----bought and sold, bred and exploited from birth to death. Slavery supported the foundation of the economy of the South. A slave state became the antithesis of a free state. Here were two economic processes one integrating to human development, and the other disintegrating. As the American Empire expanded into the Western territories the question arose as to which process would dominate and survive. Ergo, the Civil War would decide---war became inevitable and unfortunate. as neither side would yield to the other. In civilization there is a constant tension between integrating and disintegrating processes...there is in a sense perpetual warfare---of the hot or cold genre. The question Israelis must ask is: Is Zionism and integrating or disintegrating process? Yesterday in addition to Inaugurations Day was Martin Luther King's birthday. On April 4, 1967, he stated in reference to America: "A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death."
