Coming from the newspaper "Herut," Begin argues that although it currently is impossible to form a Government without Mapai, it is crucial for there to be a quantitative and representative Opposition to Mapai. Begin first writes about the difference between a free nation and a subjugated nation. Then he speaks about the different parties and these parties' relationship with Mapai, and that the Liberal Party is considering not joining Mapai. Begin explains why Herut cannot agree to join a Mapai-majority Government. He concludes that it is important to form a strong alternative to Mapai, with its main focus being the needs of the country.
