This chapter argues that one must not assume that members of the Second Aliya shared a single world of thought. On the contrary, the roots of their thinking were different and distant from one another; but all of them emerged from one soil, and the reality of their lives was the same. The forces operating in that period influenced everybody, because its manifestations affected every single individual, even though the responses to them may have been completely different. However, the chapter is not concerned with their responses but rather with the fact that they were all immersed in the same horizon of life, in a single landscape. The landscape includes all circumstances surrounding a person—the social identity, the factors in economy, the atmosphere in politics, the ideological and cultural-psychological influences, quite variegated and distant from one another—all of which combine to form the complete landscape of the generation.
