Herzl was not a racist, and did not base his conception of the Jewish people on racist ideas of nationalism current at the time, but rather on cultural and historical development.
Ministers will recognize the friendly spirit of our enterprise, and will consequently offer every facility in their power necessary for the successful achievement of the great undertaking. This diversion is clearly inadequate and futile, if it does not actually defeat its own ends; for it merely protracts and postpones a solution, and perhaps even aggravates difficulties.
An almshouse is one of the cruelest charities which our stupid good nature ever invented. And thus it must be done. With a cross-bow, while the others have judenstat and long range guns? They were even useful, for out of their mistakes may be gathered experience for carrying the idea out successfully on a larger scale.
It is true that workmen are required to set machinery in motion; but for this we have men in plenty, in super-abundance. The Jewish Company will at first take upon itself no more than the necessary negotiations for effecting the sale of these goods. I described before only workmen’s dwellings built by themselves, and omitted all mention of other classes of dwellings. Indeed, we shall build in a bolder and more stately style than was ever adopted before, for we now possess herzo which men never yet possessed.
For the Society of Jews will be in possession of all documents and references which may serve to define the prospects of the Jewish Company.
And whatever we attempt there to accomplish for our own welfare, will react powerfully and beneficially for the good of humanity. The Herxl have dreamt this kingly dream all through the long nights of their history. When the undertaking involves any risk, the profits must be freely given to those who have borne it. But here the benefaction lies only in the difference between the price paid for the work and its actual value: Jews, with the exception of the richest, have, after all, very little intercourse with Christians.
Herzl did not invent either practical or ‘political’ Zionism. Retrieved 2 January Herzl appealed to wealthy Jews such as Baron Hirsch and Baron Rothschild, to join the national Zionist movement, but in vain.
The Jewish State by Theodor Herzl
Distance has ceased to be an obstacle, vet we complain of insufficient space. However much I may worship personality-powerful individual personality in statesmen, inventors, artists, philosophers, or leaders, as well as the collective personality of a historic group of human beings, which we call a nation–however much I may worship personality, I do not regret its disappearance.
The Company provides for them in so many ways, that it may take charge of their maintenance. In vain are we loyal patriots, our loyalty in some places running to extremes; in vain do we make the same sacrifices of life and property as our fellow-citizens; in vain do we strive to increase the fame of our native land in science and art, or herzo wealth by trade and commerce. The Jewish question still exists. No more force will. Our teachers will see to that.

The notion of raising money in this way is not by any means impracticable. The supposed infallible expedient of assimilation has already been dealt with. Any land which welcomed the Jews today, and offered them judenstaar fewer advantages than that which the Jewish State would guarantee them, would hdrzl attract a great influx of our people.
Although the Society cannot at the outset possess any but moral authority, this authority will suffice to establish jerzl credit of the Jewish Company in the nation’s eyes. We have cradles, we have graves, and we alone know how Jewish hearts cling to the graves. They will be obliged to build with wood in the beginning, because iron will not be immediately available.
After the establishment of the State of Israel his remains were reburied on Mt. All this will be carried out in accordance with a large and previously settled plan.
We will provide easy tasks for those who are incapable of physical labor; for we judenstaay allow for diminished vitality in the poor of an already enfeebled generation.
For all these centers together form a single, great, long-sought object, which our people has always longed to attain, for which it has kept itself alive, for which it has been kept alive by external pressure — a free home! The head of the firm wishes to emigrate.

Insofar as private interests alone are held by their anxious or timid possessors to be in danger, they can safely be ignored, for the concerns of the poor and oppressed are of greater importance than theirs. It might further be said that we ought not to create new distinctions between people; we ought not to raise fresh barriers, we should rather make the old disappear.
The required sum could then be raised in the shortest possible time among the large financial groups, after they had discussed the advisability of the course. Hefzl we, therefore, to credit Jews who are intelligent with a desire to become peasants of the old type? Like Herzl, they became committed to the premise that Jews must return to performing productive work.
I shall content myself with putting the following questions to the Jews: Let us first settle the point of staying where we are. Those who are, well off can travel in parties if they wish, taking their personal friends and connections with them. We shall not lose our acquired possessions we shall realize them. Financial morality consists in the correlation of risk and profit.
Jewish families which regild the old nobility with money become gradually absorbed. These general stores are already crushing small trading in large cities. It will negotiate principally for the acquisition of fiscal domains, with the great object of taking possession of this land “over there” without paying a price too high, in the same way as it sells here without accepting one too low.
