World Hunger Help Is Failing

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (from Euronews): “Painfully hungry every day – the latest World Disasters Report takes a hard look at why nearly a billion people live like this, when there is enough food being produced to feed everyone.

“The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) says further that more people are going hungry in cities and in high-income countries.

“The Disasters Report says the first of the UN Millennium Development Goals probably will not be achieved by 2015: that is halving the proportion of people suffering from extreme hunger and poverty.

“The underfed now number some 925 million worldwide, according to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation. Three million under-fives die from not getting enough to eat every year.

“Undernutrition stunts the growth of an estimated 178 million children under the age of five. The handicap begins from conception — while the infant is still inside the mother — when she is not adequately fed. And of all the world’s undernourished people, six out of ten are female.

“The causes of food crises, the IFRC report says, include speculation and global market fluctuation affecting prices.”

My Comment: The reason is a lack of mutual guarantee and responsibility, a lack of community feeling of everyone on Earth, that is, our egoism, or rather the fact that without fighting it and in spite of it, we do not build a connection between us—the screen that would connect us and in which we would discover the property of bestowal, the property of Nature. Achieving this property would give us strength and ability to establish a fair connection and distribution, and everyone would have everything in abundance.

Do Not Separate, But Unite

Dr. Michael LaitmanOpinion (George Soros, billionaire investor): ”Europe’s debt crisis risks triggering another Great Depression unless euro zone leaders adopt a series of radical policy measures, including the creation of a common treasury.

“‘There is no alternative but to give birth to the missing ingredient: a European treasury with the power to tax and therefore to borrow.’

“‘The German public still thinks that it has a choice about whether to support the euro or to abandon it. That is a mistake,’ he writes.

“‘The euro exists and the assets and liabilities of the financial system are so intermingled on the basis of a common currency that a breakdown of the euro would cause a meltdown beyond the capacity of the authorities to contain.’

“‘The longer it takes for the German public to realize this, the heavier the price they and the rest of the world will have to pay.'”

My Comment: It is not a solution because all the problems are revealed to us only to force us to unite into a single whole. Soros proposes not the correction of society, which is what nature requires from us, but the elimination of nature’s pressure. In this case, we will get more pressure, in the form of a greater crisis (perhaps in a different place and form).

Australia Warns Europe Not To ‘Muck’ About

In the News: “The inability of European leading countries to find the way out of economic crisis seems to have become irritating even to the places most remote from the Old World. The official representatives of Australia sharply criticized the EU leaders, accusing them of empty talk and finally called them to take effective measures.” (Source:

“Australia on Monday accused European leaders of ‘mucking’ about for 18 months, and being on a ‘never-ending journey of just seeking to muddle through’ as they struggle to contain eurozone debt issues.

“Treasurer Wayne Swan, who has repeatedly called on Europe to resolve the issue before it damages global growth, said he was frustrated at the pace of efforts and urged a resolution at a meeting set for Wednesday.

“‘This has been going on for 18 months, and it is true that they have been mucking around for 18 months,’ he told ABC Radio.

“‘We do need to see a comprehensive set of plans, and if we don’t see those, we will see a protracted recession in Europe and the obvious implications of that for the rest of the global economy.’

“Swan’s comments were supported by Prime Minister Julia Gillard who warned Europe had been ‘living beyond its means’ and had so far only adopted half-hearted measures to address structural issues.

“‘For the sake of the global economy they need to get this fixed,’ she told The Australian newspaper.

“‘What the fix looks like is in the first instance a matter for them. But it must be fixed.'” (Source:

UN Experts Predict A Rise In Youth Unemployment

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (from the International Labour Organization (ILO)): “The International Labour Organization (ILO) has warned of a ‘scarred’ generation of young workers facing a dangerous mix of high unemployment, increased inactivity and precarious work in developed countries, as well as persistently high working poverty in the developing world.

“The ‘Global Employment Trends for Youth: 2011 Update‘ says the ‘bad luck of the generation entering the labour market in the years of the Great Recession brings not only current discomfort from unemployment, under-employment and the stress of social hazards associated with joblessness and prolonged inactivity, but also possible longer term consequences in terms of lower future wages and distrust of the political and economic system.’

“Between 2008 and 2009, the number of unemployed youth increased by an unprecedented 4.5 million worldwide. This remarkable increase is better visualized when compared to the average increase of the pre-crisis period (1997-2007) of less than 100,000 persons per year.

“The report notes that this collective frustration among youth has been a contributing factor to protest movements around the world this year, as it becomes increasingly difficult for young people to find anything other than part-time and temporary work.”

My Comment: Why wouldn’t ILO initiate a new attitude to work, introduce universal training in the new social conditions of all workers in terms of their working hours, and thus create additional workplaces? Everyone who works half of his time would be busy studying the global integral interdependence of humanity and the new methods of human interaction.

This will create completely different conditions in the world. The vacant working time will allow hiring unemployed people and thereby solve both problems: unemployment and correct human behavior in a new integrally connected world.

People Will Have A Need For Each Other

Dr. Michael LaitmanOpinion: (Li Edelkoort, one of the world’s most renowned trend forecasters): “‘The end of an era of individualism has come,’ says Li Edelkoort. The world’s foremost trend forecaster studies the links among design, art, fashion and consumer culture to see what kind of effect they have will have on our lives. Two to three years down the road, ‘we will rely on each other to network and collaborate… functioning within a group, without losing personal traits and talents.’” (Source:

“This could radically change politics, economy, army, police, government, and big business. The pyramid of power is about to collapse; now, it will not be a pyramid, but rather a building with a terrace. People will have a natural need for each other.” (Source:

My Comment: The emergence of such views in recent years has become a trend. This brings joy and gives confidence that the vision of the future in the unity of people is becoming closer.

An Everlasting Sensation Of An Eternal Life

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Where exactly should a person start in order to feel the whole system of the universe inside?

Answer: Start only from our joint inclusion into a single group. Men or women, irrespective of who, where, and how, if everyone tries to unite into one system, a system of a mutual guarantee, we will begin to represent a closed system. We will start to feel a common pleasure in the form of spiritual Light that will circulate between us.

It is an everlasting sensation of an eternal perfect life that exists above our present existence and has nothing to do with our animate body. In other words, when you begin to feel this enormous circulating pleasure, our life will cease to be felt as the only one that exists. Even the death of the body will not be perceived as death anymore. It will just be a departure from the lowest and most insignificant part of you.

An Adapter Between The Creator And The Creature

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: While we read The Zohar, should we think about uniting with the 99% of humanity or only with those who have a point in the heart?

Answer: We should think about the whole chain: “Israel (the one who aspires to the Creator), the Torah (the Light that Reforms), and the Creator are one.” What’s the purpose of the Torah, the Light that Reforms? The purpose is for the 99% to be corrected. Israel is in the middle in order to organize this Light, bring it to the vessels (desires), and create a connection between their desires and the desires of the nations of the world so that the Light will pass through this adapter or transition and correct the nations of the world. In essence, the nations of the world are the object of influence; namely they need to be corrected.

Israel went through the breaking, passed the whole necessary preparation, and now also exists in the worst possible, broken state after intermixing with and becoming included in all the nations of the world. In addition, we still don’t know what happened to the ten lost tribes of Israel. All of this was necessary in order to bring the source of the upper Light in accordance with the nations of the world.

There should be an adapter in the middle, like Bina between Malchut and Hochma with Keter. Keter is the Thought of Creation; Hochma is the Light given to the creatures by the Thought of Creation; and Bina understands, receives, feels, and adapts the execution of this plan for the creatures with the help of its upper and lower Sefirot (GAR de Bina and ZAT de Bina).

Therefore, Israel as a whole is called “Bina.” On one hand, they should make themselves similar to the Creator since they were prepared for this by the “merits of the patriarchs.” On the other, after their breaking, the destruction of the two Temples in spirituality, and their intermixing with the nations of the world in exile, they have the readiness to also be included in the latter. Thus they can be in GAR de Bina, which is us in the process of our studies while in connection between us and the Creator, as well as in ZAT de Bina, which is us interacting with the nations of the world, their education, the dissemination of the science of Kabbalah to them, and so on.

However, on their own the nations of the world are ZON, which require correction. These ZON that require correction also have our part, Zeir Anpin within them, and a part of Malchut, which is only them. Therefore, they also have already been included in Bina.

Thus, when we study, work, and realize any actions, we should also take into account the whole system. The end of an action is in its initial thought, and we need to see this whole creation, understand how we fit into it, and realize the Creator’s order—our mission.

What Initiates Revolutions?

Dr. Michael LaitmanDoomed to submit to society, we go through our entire lives so that others will profit at our expense. At the end of the day, they don’t gain anything from this. They are unhappy in their own way since they too are within this cycle.

But today a system of general interconnection is being revealed to us, and it exposes all the problems of the previous, egoistic system. The gap created as a result of this will lead to serious tumults that are greater than those we see today.

People will begin to understand that the entire current system is built in such a way that it just “sucks the blood” from them every single moment. We are all exposed to the constant, psychological manipulation of the big egoists, “the great of this world.” And by the way, they are also in line for manipulation by the general system, but at a different level of hierarchy.

I am worried that eventually this revelation will result in an outburst of feelings and that from then on, we will move towards fraternal wars and a world war. A revolution begins when a person’s eyes open up: It turns out that he is taken advantage of unjustly, and without his agreement. He can not accept that. He senses the disclosure of the “snake” that sucks his veins in a very shrewd way; he feels that his “I,” his ego, his honor, is injured. He is ready to do anything in order to destroy this “poisonous snake,” even if it costs him his life.

I hope that we go in a different direction because this way has great suffering awaiting us. We need to discover everything is the Creator’s Light. We must attract the Light that Reforms, and it will show us how to arrange everything.

And as to the “explosion” scenario, we must take it to those who have power and influence so that they will see what may happen if things go wrong. Then they will want to participate in the dissemination of the knowledge of mutual guarantee and the education of people. However in any case, this integral education roots in our inner force, and it will drip like an infusion into the circulatory system of the world.

Discovering Oneself In Infinity

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: In the article “Peace in the World,” Baal HaSulam writes that in reality, we bestow upon others without any benefit for ourselves. What does that mean?

Answer: We are all in Infinity, in a wonderful system. We all bestow upon each other, and all the souls are corrected and completely filled. The end of an action is in its initial thought. Nothing separates us, and we are all in adhesion with the Creator. He and His Name are one.

Yes, we are in Infinity, but to become aware of this state, to exist in, control, and understand it in all its depth, and through it to comprehend the force that established it, we must understand and become conscious of all its elements. This is why we find ourselves in a completely opposite state and begin to gradually develop. It’s like a baby who doesn’t know where he is, what is happening around him, and who takes care of him. But little by little he grows, until he becomes an adult.

So we now are in the world of Infinity, but do not sense it. And all of our work is to return to the real reality, to discover what already exists. This is what the revelation of the Creator to the created beings is.

I discover what already exists, and everything depends upon me. Therefore, Baal HaSulam writes that it isn’t more than psychologically work on ourselves. By way of inner changes we discover the real state in which we exist from the beginning.
