Letter to Tzvi Shatz
I too, my dear Grisha, have set high goals for myself ", wrote Trumpeldor in 1908 to his good friend, Tzvi Shatz.; not only over the question of the Jews, do I intend to solve via my communist colonies. The idea of the colonies began to take shape in my mind years ago, when I was far from contemplating Zionism. Depressed and disillusioned with this capitalistic regime I could not console myself as others did - in a kind of war, which both sides fight while engulfed in deep corruption.
