The Weakness Of The Powerful

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Today you published research results that discovered a nucleus of 147 leading world corporations that are tightly intertwined with one another, support each other, and to many, epitomize the notion of globalization in its negative sense, as those who hog the power over the world. Should anything change in this regard as a result of our unification?

Answer: I don’t think that the leaders of these corporations were smart enough to incite such a plan. Nature was pulling the strings, and it brought them to the current situation. Man does not choose anything here. He is simply driven by the egoistic desire, which develops to global proportions.

In reality the matter is not confined to 147 companies. If we make a truly deep and precise calculation, then we probably won’t find anything beyond this network. However, its “above-water” aspect, which connects everyone, can be imagined in this way.

On the other hand, there is a significant problem concealed here, which the big players are discovering today. The immense scope and interconnection with others gives them power, but at the same time, enormous weakness. After all, they are “tied together” and cannot do anything. None of them is able to budge a millimeter. The threads between them became ties that are impossible to escape.

Thus, it turns out that instead of providing anyone with power, the global network rules by itself, fully and entirely. The world is no longer able to break this connection, and as a result, it cannot change it in order to improve its situation in any way. No summits will improve the situation with the help of any means at their disposal. After all, these means are no longer effective, which is what we are seeing over the course of recent years.

The world leaders are powerless. In this situation the global network compels them to be idle because the regular methods—both economic and military force—do not help. Pour money into banks, change the dictators—nothing will help. The world is now governed by this network, and its movement cannot be stopped.

The only thing that can be done is to take care of people’s upbringing, about inner movements. It is necessary to change the quality of the “matter” that is connected by the threads of this network. You can’t change the network by itself, but you can improve the quality of its constituent parts, and then their connection will improve. That is the only way the entire system can be lifted to the level of interaction and prosperity.

This will already be something new, completely different from what the people in power had in mind. However, this will provide us with life. Otherwise the network will begin to kill those who are in it. The world has to understand that there is just one opportunity, just one approach to the modern problems: to take care of people’s worldview, to raise their consciousness, their moral level. Then their connection, which envelops their network, rises from negative, egoistic and protectionist, to unity, cohesion, and mutual guarantee.

All other plans won’t help. Moreover, the new upbringing should be conducted by people with a point in the heart, who attract the Light that reforms. Otherwise nothing will work. In the current conditions, only one clear and narrow direction for actions will work.
