Education Is The Main Task Of A Nation

 Question: Does the wisdom of Kabbalah contain knowledge about how a nation should function?

Answer: In our times, a nation should be involved with the education of the population within its borders first and foremost, not crossing the borders into other nations and not bringing everyone into it in the wider sense of the word, rather most importantly, educating its citizens.

If people who have been properly educated are living within a nation, understanding the general thought of nature and knowing in what manner it operates, they will overcome all kinds of problems.

Question: So, as long as a person is uneducated, there must be borders, and as soon as education is conducted properly, the borders can be opened?

Answer: Of course, because then a person will begin to understand who to take in and who not. He would not do as Europe thoughtlessly did and now is mired in great problems. Imagine what would happen if you were to open the door of your house and brought in another family to live with you.

The problem is that the Europeans didn’t examine their nations or continent as a family that is accepting other foreign family members to dwell in their apartments. Would they be able to withstand this kind of dormitory? Suppose that the head of state decided that he could. Then why didn’t he first try to have them live with him?

Education can be summed up as knowledge about what we are going through, with whom we are working, and in what manner to evaluate such experiments. In the situation today, when there are already foreign immigrant families in your house, you don’t know what to do with them.

You must feed them, clean up after them, wash for them, supply them with everything necessary, pay them a stipend, and even love them. In addition, you must listen to them and obey their laws; in other words, they will begin to educate you and not you them. After all, they don’t intend to accept your perception of life, your education, and your social customs.
