Young Adults Reject Marriage Because Of The Global Egoism That Is Being Revealed

Is Correction Possible without a Man?In the News (from Daily Telegraph):Marriage not regarded as ‘best relationship’ by young adults” Marriage is no longer regarded as the best form of a relationship by younger generations, the largest survey of public attitudes in Britain shows. Married couples will be in the minority by next year, as increasing numbers of people choose to live together out of wedlock.

My Comment: This is happening because the global egoism is now being revealed, and it shows us how interconnected we all are and how much we don’t desire this connection. Therefore, in our time, if we don’t start correcting ourselves, transforming our quality of “using everyone” to the quality of “serving everyone,” we will end up with a complete breakdown of the family unit, which is the basic building block of society.

Such a breakdown of the family unit, the basis of life, is only happening to humans. It does not happen to animals because they don’t have the same egoistic bond between spouses as people do, who must attain the unity where “all are as one,” according to the law of the Mutual Guarantee (Arvut).

Why Are There So Many Unneeded Books?

There Are No Idols In KabbalahIn the News (from The New York Times): The point may soon come when there are more people who want to write books than there are people who want to read them. …companies that charge writers and photographers to publish are growing rapidly at a time when many mainstream publishers are losing ground. Experts state that for every thousand titles that get self-published, maybe there’s two that should have been published.

My Comment: Baal HaSulam, article “Time to Act”:
Prior to the development of the printing industry, there were no false books as there were no writers who were irresponsible, for the simple reason that an irresponsible person is not famous. Therefore, even if one dared to write such a book, no scribe would copy it, as he would not be paid for his labor, which was quite expensive.

But ever since the printing of books has become popular, and writers no longer need scribes to manually copy their books, the price of books has been reduced. This has paved the way for irresponsible writers to publish whatever books they please, for money or for glory.

Therefore, the knowledge of the public has been greatly corrupted. In addition, there is an atmosphere of disregard for books: people think that a quick scan of a serious book in their leisure time is sufficient to master the wisdom.

Governments Have No Plan For Coping With The Crisis

planIn the News (from A Fistful of Euros): The Ruble Fall Continues As Unemployment Soars” The Central Bank does not rule out the possibility of a new wave of the crisis erupting in the banking sector, the bank’s Chairman Sergei Ignatyev told the Russian State Duma on Friday. …First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov told the State Duma today, “The crisis will continue for three years, of which 2009 will be the most difficult… We must be prepared for further economic decline.”

My Comment: Neither the government nor the experts have any plan for coping with the crisis. And they can’t have a plan, because the plan must be based on the knowledge of the final state and of the path to get there, and no government in the world has either of these!
