The Tel Aviv Cluster

Jews are a famously accomplished group. They make up 0.2 percent of the world population, but 54 percent of the world chess champions, 27 percent of the Nobel physics laureates and 31 percent of the medicine laureates.

Jews make up 2 percent of the U.S. population, but 21 percent of the Ivy League student bodies, 26 percent of the Kennedy Center honorees, 37 percent of the Academy Award-winning directors, 38 percent of those on a recent Business Week list of leading philanthropists, 51 percent of the Pulitzer Prize winners for nonfiction.

Cause and Effect!

What happens will happen because it is the only thing that can happen.  No body causes the law of gravity, it is “cause and effect.”
A scientific mind that is not prejudiced by dogma, religious or political, will always see the forest as well as the individual trees.  If you can’t see the forest because of the trees you will never see the big picture, as a consequence of being short sighted you will be blind to how the past affects the present and how what happens in the present will affect the future.  You will be blind to what is inevitable and what is not inevitable.
Change happens! Traditions become no longer relevant to the changing circumstances, situations and conditions, that happen to prevail at a particular point in time.  Change always happens when it is necessary for that change to occur.  It is necessary for a starving man to eat food or he will die.  It is inevitable!
It is inevitable for socialism to become the next stage of social development. Capitalism has a life span and when it becomes necessary the locked out workers of the system of capitalism will have no alternative but to overthrow the capitalist system, and to bring into being the diametric opposite of the capitalist system.  A system that has a planned economy designed to profit without discrimination the entire community.
