  1. Times have certainly changed. Years ago (actually, many years ago) left-wing political parties would go into opposition in order not to be part of immoral or destructive policies. Indeed, heroic individuals would often do the same.
    (One thinks of Karl Liebknecht opposing the German war effort in World War 1 in the Reichstag – as a minority of 1, for which he was promptly jailed).

    Why does the misnamed ‘Labor’ Party go into opposition? To protest aggressive and racist policies? To protest the settlements? Not at all – in fact the ‘Labor’ party was at the forefront of these. No, Barak and Co. go into opposition
    because they are ‘breugess’ that nobody voted for them and think that something will change if they sullenly go home – without rethinking their policies, their leaders, or anything else. Oy.
