The article refers to the discussion regarding the Israeli NGO law that took place during a workshop in Haifa 2016 and to the article of Kerstin Mueller in this volume. She outlines that “singling out” of public funds—as it is featured by the NGO law—is not just a matter of political expediency, but a part of a broader ideology that depicts public power as a danger to freedom, while private money as an expression of human flourishing. The call for transparency is highly pertinent from a democratic perspective. Therefore, advocates of progressive politics should endorse is and support the struggle to also expand it to private funds.
