The Jewish State by Theodor Herzl

Although the Society cannot at the outset possess any but moral authority, this authority will suffice to establish the credit of the Jewish Judehstaat in the nation’s eyes. At one point the judenstwat old Duke seemed moved: But at the same time it converts the good-for-nothing beggar into an honest breadwinner, who has earned perhaps 1 franc 50 centimes. Immigration is consequently futile unless we have the sovereign right to continue such immigration.

But future generations shall be dealt with otherwise; they shall be brought up in liberty for a life of liberty. The Jewish Company will be founded as a joint stock company subject to English jurisdiction, framed according to English laws, and under judenstsat protection of England.

The Jewish Company will also pay heavy taxes. Further and direct profit will accrue to Governments from the transport of passengers and goods, and where railways are State property the returns will be heerzl recognizable. If jucenstaat is a real earnest demand among Jews for an improvement of their status; if the medium to be created — hegzl Jewish Company — is sufficiently powerful, then commerce will extend itself freely in the new country.

And the Company will also keep back drunkards and dissolute men. Instead of giving the beggar two sous, the institution supplies him with work on which hersl loses two sous. This will, in addition to the honors they expect, will be additional pay for their services.


It will probably also be made in other countries, but I shall answer only the French Jews beforehand, because these afford the most striking example of my point. The impossibility of comprehending how trade and commerce are to be created in a new country which has yet to be acquired and cultivated, may be classed with those doubts of “practical” persons concerning the need of railways.

In the first and general part 1 shall explain my ideas, remove all prejudices, determine essential political and economic conditions, and develop the plan.

But there we seem undoubtedly to have touched on the crucial difficulty of my plan. In the second place, the Jewish Company might take them over, paying for them partly in land, partly in cash. The local groups will delegate their authorized representatives to select sites for towns. The Herrzl of Jews will obtain from the local branches information about the number, requirements and date of arrival of the settlers, and will yerzl all such information in good time to the Jewish Company.

Is it not true, that the Jewish middle classes are seriously threatened? It heralded the coming of age of Zionism.

Anti-Semitism increases day by day and hour by hour among the nations; indeed, it is bound to increase, because the causes of its growth continue to exist and cannot be removed. The Society of Jews will, moreover, busy itself from the outset with their training as artisans. I cannot tell yet how large the Company’s capital should be; I shall leave that calculation to our numerous financiers. Events occurring in countries undiscovered when Europe confined the Jews in Ghettos are known to us in the course of an hour.


The daughters of the middle classes will marry judenstaag ambitious men. Seeing that all his needs are supplied, and that those members of his family who are unable kudenstaat work are provided for by transplanted and centralized philanthropic institutions, he can save a little money. The Jewish Company will offer to the States that come within its sphere of activity direct as well as indirect advantages.

The method adopted will prevent the occurrences of crises, secure every man’s property, and facilitate that inner migration of Christian citizens which has already been indicated.

The Governments of all countries scourged by Anti-Semitism will be keenly interested in assisting us to obtain the sovereignty we want. Where they are held by private companies, the Jewish Company will receive favorable terms for transport, in the same way as does every transmitter of goods on a large scale. But the State revenues might suffer by the loss of a body of taxpayers, who, though little appreciated as citizens, are highly valued in finance.

We have not the slightest intention of organizing trade artificially, and we should certainly not attempt to do it in a day.

In many places Jews have control of the transport; and the transport businesses will be the first needed by the Company and the first to judensgaat liquidated by it. But the need for mixed marriages would have to be felt by the majority; their mere recognition by law would certainly not suffice.

Old prisoners do not willingly leave their cells.
