Competition Without Losers

Laitman_506_5From “The Crisis and Its Solution” (Arosa Forum, 2006)

As a result of society’s purposeful influence, everyone will aspire to receive only what is necessary for his existence from the society and spare no effort in his work for the society’s welfare.

To consume only “necessary for the existence” doesn’t mean to lead a meager life and subject ourselves to limitations. However, gradually due to integral education, the better understanding of and researching of our lives, we will suddenly realize that 99.9% of all goods that we produce only do us harm.

After all, the human body is an animal. We can’t feed a cow with cakes or accustom a horse to drink champagne. Similarly, our body requires simple, healthy, and varied food, that is most suitable for it. We must come to this through integral education.

Therefore, necessary for existence means all that is required for our animalistic body. We need to find out what is the most beneficial for it, and then include this in the educational program.

This opinion is passed to a person gradually and without any pressure. Perhaps it will take one or two generations, but in the end, humanity will switch to healthy consumption.

Question: How is it possible to decide what food is considered healthy because different things are suitable for different people?

Answer: All the advices about healthy food that we receive today come from the desire to sell something. Don’t forget this. Thus, it is obvious that all the products we buy, having believed advertisements, are useful only to those who sell them. We’ve never read a piece of advice that is really intended for our benefit.

Now all the lies about global warming are revealed. There is a group in the UN that fuels rumors around global warming and receives billions of dollars each year to allegedly fight it. But in fact, all these measures don’t give any results.

And everything is this way because our egoism can’t do anything good. It is obvious that a huge supermarket can be replaced by a small store, and that will be enough. A person doesn’t need a hundred kinds of cheese; there is no need for this.

Of course, there should be healthy products, several varieties for different tastes. But this diversity shouldn’t come from competition, from someone’s desire to earn.

Competition should be in who produces the most healthy and delicious products. That is, the original motive for competition is completely different. The product should be the best, most delicious, yet cheap, and should not harm the environment.

Nobody is going to forbid and limit anything. We just need to eliminate this principle of competition for the sake of profit and to develop competition around who brings more benefit to people. Nothing more is required! Everything is determined by the upbringing of a person, and as a result of integral education, his head will gradually begin to rise above material interests.

The Plan For Exiting Crisis, Part 5

laitman_600_04Altruism—Genuine or Irresponsible

Question: There are many people in the world today who can call themselves altruists. Why do you think that the crisis resolution is possible through altruistic education?

Answer: We are not talking about altruism as customarily understood in this world, but about the Kabbalistic meaning of it. Altruism is the perception of the whole society as one system in which the wellbeing of an individual is equivalent to the wellbeing of society; therefore, he must include himself in the society and treat it as he treats himself.

I do not know if various altruists and humanists think the same. If any of them treats society this way, then it is close to what the wisdom of Kabbalah demands from us.

If a person sees his life as a part of society, like an embryo in a womb of his mother, receiving everything from her; then he realizes that everything depends on the wellbeing of society. And that is why he gives everything to the society and takes only the bare necessities for himself. Through this behavior, we guarantee our spiritual life without any restrictions.

A person will treat society this way if he receives an integral education. With the help of this education, he will begin to understand and feel what “integrality” is and what it means to be all as one man. Without this, the world cannot exist. The global crisis and the numerous problems that modern world is experiencing today lead us to this.

The world is in the transitional period when the era of “democracy” and “liberalism,” which led society’s leaders to irresponsible management, is nearing its end. If all management is carried out exclusively in a “democratic” way, then the results are the most disastrous.

After all, who chooses the leaders? This is the public who makes their choice based on which candidate screams louder, looks prettier, and is more like the Hollywood icons..

We can see the results of this populism all over the world. The leaders of European countries destroyed Europe with their liberal course. Perhaps, it is not clear to everyone yet, but very soon it will manifest itself to its fullest.

And most importantly, the harmful influence of the mass media determines public opinion through the speeches of famous artists and popular figures who know how to convince people.

It turns out that the leadership of countries is chosen not according to their professional leadership qualities, but according to their public speaking skills.

The public, impressed by performances, chooses their leaders, who then come to power and start doing whatever they want. All of this is the result of populism, liberalism, and democracy. The problem of modern leadership is its incompetence.

The revision of the entire previous approach is beginning now, and we hope it will lead to correction.
