Today in Tablet Magazine, Matthew Kaminski talks with Yale historian Timothy Snyder, a longtime friend of the late intellectual Tony Judt, about Thinking the Twentieth Century, the book they began collaborating on in 2009, after Judt was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease, and worked on until just a few weeks before Judt’s August 2010 death.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18
Yearly rate: $180

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

George One says:

Very easy for people to theorise about Israel having to become a bi-ethnic state to remain democratic. Everybody knows what happens to Jews when they are a minority in a country (any country) and especially in an Arab country. Also how long would it take for an Arab-majority Israel to become a dictatorship? Israel also has a place as an “ultimate refuge” for diaspora Jews if things go badly wrong in their various native countries. So PLEASE DON’T TOUCH ISRAEL.
