New Life #408 – Corruption
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel
In recent years, we have seen increased corruption in high level government officials. How is the development of the ego related to the growing corruption and what can correct it?
In the past there was no corruption, by definition, a king or ruler could do whatever he wanted. Suddenly concepts like equality, freedom, and justice emerged, a government by the people, the establishment of law and order. An ordinary person who breaks the law is punished, while the corrupt people in high positions do whatever they like! This is infuriating!
Corruption is not only with regard to money. It is any use of power, of the media, of the education system, and of the culture for one’s own purposes.
We have reached a dead end. The problem is that we don’t know how to reach a better state. Therefore, we need an educational process that includes all of society to gradually upgrade man’s egoistic nature. A corrected person who comes to power will act only by caring about the well being of others and not about himself. A person should be allowed to govern only according to the level of his correction.
