Liberalism may lead to Communism

Israel started off in 1948 as a democratic state but was still dependent upon socialist values for survival. There were a number of Kibbutz or closed collective communities which were developed for survival of each separate unit. Kibbutz combined socialism and Zionism. The economy of these communities was primarily agriculture but was partly supplanted by other economic branches including industrial plants, and high tech enterprises. In 2010 there were 270 Kibbutzim in Israel. Many of these Kibbutzim have been privatized opening up to free enterprise and Jewish family life.
