Not A Crisis But A Breakthrough

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How do we explain to the public that the era of unbridled consumption is ending?

Answer: A person doesn’t need explanations to feel hungry; however, when the crisis hits, only the government can provide them with food.

Question: So we are building a state of common welfare, aren’t we?

Answer: We certainly are since a state’s job is to provide everybody with food, shelter,  clothing, healthcare, and so on. Vital necessity is not a loaf of bread and a glass of water per day. No, we are talking about a normal existence but not more than that. As to the rest, we educate a person how to receive ideal fulfillment from another source instead of running after the “blessings of civilization.”

It is coming to an end anyway, and there is nothing we can do about it. The world is sinking into crisis, which is supposed to demonstrate to us that we cannot consume more than we need. You may not wish to accept it, but nature will force you to, like it or not. Besides, we can’t explain to the public what’s happening and tell them how they need to act, meaning how to build a new government, a new integral world, unless we send them to school.

As we teach little children, so will we teach adults about the laws by which the world operates, the world that they now find themselves in. After all, if a person doesn’t comprehend the mechanisms of a fully integral world, he or she cannot survive in it. There isn’t a more effective and affordable solution to transform people than global education.

Do you wish to keep getting what you need? Here you go, just don’t forget that you are supposed to come to the lesson. You want to riot? It won’t solve your problems.

Recently, Amr Moussa, the Egyptian presidential candidate, has admitted that instead of a new beginning, the revolution has resulted in a deeper crisis which doesn’t seem to be ending. In his words were sincere pain; he did not expect this turn of events. It isn’t his or Mubarak’s fault: They simply didn’t see the process as a whole. People thought the new government would find the funds, but money alone is useless.

Hence, there is no other way but to figure out how many tailors, farmers, and other workers we need in order to keep a small percent of the population in the necessary areas of production, while the rest of the people have to be sent to school. There is no alternative, this is the way it has to work. This is the only solution that will provide people with the basic necessities so they don’t riot and understand that there is no place to go: The is the new world and the integral system we live in.

The truth is that we have stepped into a new territory rather than into a crisis; we must operate in the new format governed by different laws. And we have to pass through this bottleneck in order to reach perfection.
