Threads are distinct strands in society that people can choose to belong to. They have their own rules in certain areas (civil law, welfare and education), but they integrate into the larger system. Threads are a bit like methods of transport - whether they be trucks, bicycles or cars. Everybody can choose their own preferred system - and those choices will come with a distinct experience.
The civil law of the groups (or Threads) would only apply in disputes between members. Any dispute that affects members of multiple Threads will be handled by State Law.
By enabling greater ideological autonomy, Threads enable the different strands of Israeli society to live their visions without threatening the values that others have.
Threads also bring what are already de facto judicial and self-governance systems in certain sectors of Israeli society into the legal fold.
Threads are not sects, ethnicities or religions. They are only fuller expressions of distinct social expressions. Indeed, citizens can choose a new Thread at any time.
Finally, Threads do not elect or choose members of Knesset. No separate camps together to negotiate the laws of the State. Instead, the legislature is drawn entirely from the Knots.
