National beta-site

Israel's mandate ought to be to serve as the national beta-site for the world's political challenges. 
Israel should try to serve as a demonstration site to test and to prove out schemes for sustainability that the incumbent, major, imperial powers could not and should not attempt. Israel ought to position itself as the Switzerland for the nations of the world, except that Israel’s neutrality would be not with respect to the large-power chess game that dominated the ancien regime rulers of medieval and contemporary Europe. Rather Israel would be the moral and technological gateway to the future so that nations and national leaders could look to Israel to see how she is tackling the next challenge to sustainability the world is facing.
