While the position of Romanian Jewry thus overlapped that prevailing in the Pale, Jewish politics in Bohemia and Moravia can be seen as broadly similar to the Hungarian “system.” Jews in those twin regions had enjoyed equal civil rights since 1867 and, as was the case with Hungarian Jews, were in the main satisfied enough to express their identity as a religious collectivity. (This despite the fact that there did exist a uniquely Moravian institution created by the state, the local Jewish “political communities.”) However, while Magyar dominance in the Kingdom of Hungary acted on the Jews as a magnet of overwhelming force, in Bohemia and Moravia the Jewish population was caught uncomfortably in the bitter conflict between the German and Czech nationalities.

The (ideal) relation of the individual citizen to the state is quite different on Rousseau's account than on Locke's; in Rousseau's account, the individual must be actively engaged in political life in order to maintain the identification of his supremely authoritative will with the general will, whereas in Locke the emphasis is on the limits of governmental authority with respect to the expressions of the individual will.
