This paper positions long-term aims for the State, which will facilitate a fitting balance between social cohesion and involvement in the national endeavor, on one hand, and dissension and multiplicity of opinions, on the other. Gavizon therefore deviates from the more widespread efforts to blur basic goals in order to attain accord regarding short-term policies. She aspires for a Jewish state, democratic and free, which can implement the rights of the Jewish nation for political self determination and - at the same time strengthen the nation's residents' civic identity. At the same time, Gavizon reiterates the friction between the various components of her vision, such as that between Jewish fundamentals and universal ones, between pre-formulation of defined goals (such as peace and progress) and the adoption of democratic procedures that are, by nature, aimed at presiding over differing concepts and objectives.
