My favorite words from this inspirational piece from writers / activists Dahlia Scheindlin and Matthew Duss in which they maintain that the American Left can learn from the Israeli Left are these :
The main levers of political power are not ours. We are in the resistance. There is a freedom in knowing that big ideas are worth expressing without euphemism or restraint; bold political risks are worth trying because we have already lost everything. Fear and loss have a way of focusing the mind. There can be newfound activism, there can be a clearer vision on policy, concepts, and terminology.
