IT HAPPENED TOMORROW Militant Energies

vitaleBy Guido Vitale

“With the collapse of the Soviet Union and the retreat of Marxist socialism around the world, militant energies have needed somewhere to go. The battle against inequalities under liberal capitalism has mobilised some of that passion, but postcolonial guilt has fired up the war against its prize whipping boy, Zionism, like no other cause. Every such crusade needs a villain along with its banners and I wonder who that could possibly be?”. (Simon Schama , Pagine Ebraiche, March 2016)
