SHOW NOTES: As it stands right now, Israel might have the single most conservative government in the world. It's partly what allows them to oversee such a despicable system of Apartheid.
But as we speak, protests have completely brought the entire country to a standstill. People are resigning from government jobs, businesses are shutting down, flights are being canceled - all because the far-right government is trying to change the laws to allow them to completely take over the judiciary.
I support the protests. Injustice anywhere is always a threat to justice everywhere. However, it's wild knowing that these same people protesting have never protested with this much vigor against the Apartheid in their nation. And that if Palestinians came close to protesting like this, they'd be shot and killed.
Let me unpack and explain it.
