Random Thought of the Day: Word Choice 2

As I was researching today, I read a paragraph, immediately went yoggity-yoggity-yoggity a la Scooby Doo, and then read it again. I could not think of anything that wasn’t dirty, so I knew I had to share it with the world.

It was, of course, the fundamental purpose of Zionism to make the Jews autonomous, not only in their political institutions but also in their social and economic institutions. Nevertheless, success in achieving sovereignty brought with it unexpected problems arising from the sudden erection of a state apparatus. So, too, even as Zionism achieved an intrinsic aim by freeing Israel from the subordination of its judiciary to British legal practices and legal authorities, it encountered the unexplored difficulties of living according to Jewish law.

I don’t know about you, but if your state apparatus is erect from more than four hours, seek medical help.

Thanks, Jehuda Reinharz, for your insights on “Transition from Yishuv to State.”
