Question: All people basically understand that sharing the similar opinions is the key to a successful society, to mutual understanding, and to peace. So why are your remarks so sarcastic and contradictory to the common knowledge? Is this what the attitude of the wisdom of Kabbalah to the world should be?
Answer: Appeasement does not lead to anything good. On the contrary, on the level of debates and expressing opinions, there should not be conciliation and it is actually the clarification of contradictions and differences that is the basis for finding and attaining the one right decision.
Identifying the differences is the basis for any thought and understanding of different phenomenon. Debates have always been the scientist’s’ tool. The ability to sort out and to classify large amounts of data is the basis of any field of science. This means that on the theoretical level the aspiration to smooth any differences is detrimental.
