Survival

Two weeks ago, Israel survived the final episode of the Israeli version of the television blockbuster reality series Survivor, in Hebrew: Hisardut. Lapid described the fracture that accrued in the family around the discussion over the values the program communicates. On this front, his arguments seem to have lost and he found him self exiled.

The etymological meaning of the word exile, apart from its old English meaning of banishment, is due to the ancient Greeks method of punishment of deporting a member of the community out of the island:

ex– out of ile-island

The smaller drawing relates to a theme in the column following comments Lapid had received from readers of his piece which evolved around the responsibility leaders are taking, or not, over their deeds.
