The Liberal Israel Articles
- by Noah Nissani
During the 18th and 19th centuries, a period characterized by unprecedental social change and progress, Liberalism was the prevalent ideology in Europe and America. The atmosphere of liberty and free enterprise lead to rapid development of science, technology and industry. Physics moved from Newton to Einstein, alchemy transformed into chemistry, medicine jumped from Hippocrates to Pasteur. Technology and industry replaced human
labor with steam and electricity, horseback and human foot with automobiles and airplanes. Slavery, the stigma that put to shame humankind from the beginning of prehistory, disappeared from the Western world.
