The Program For Coming Out Of The Crisis

economists-dont-care-about-the-cause-of-the-financial-crisisA question I received: What program for coming out of the crisis would you suggest to the G-20 leaders?

My Answer: Here are the two basic concepts of our program:

1) To bring people clear knowledge of the fact that we are living in a time when we cannot survive without uniting with every citizen of the world.

2) To explain Kabbalah’s main principles on a basic level: what is unification, how can we unite through mutual bestowal, what is essential to us, what is the fair distribution of the essential things, and so on.

Gradually, step-by-step, people will learn how to build the new connections while maintaining all the production and industries. The way to do this is for people to keep only what is essential to them, and to distribute the excess equally to the whole world.

These actions should start being implemented in at least one part of the world, and whoever wants to will join them, and whoever doesn’t want to, won’t. As soon as humanity begins to move in this direction, it will feel a kind attitude from Nature because it will be acting in accordance with Nature’s laws. And because humanity will be harmoniously interacting with these laws, every endeavor will bring positive results. Gradually, by following the new feelings and knowledge, the world will advance.

    A 12 year old speaks for us
    This month 15 years ago a 12 year old girl spoke at the United Nations Conference
    on Environment & Development at Rio De Janeiro.
    I have printed out her extraordinary speech.
    It is even more pressing today as no political leader has seriously addressed
    any of the important issues on which she spoke.
    Please take four minutes to read it.
    I have often said that being spiritual isn t just a feel-good state but a state of radical,
    positive activity. Truly great Masters like Jesus haven t just walked around with a
    blissful grin on their face but have called people to spiritually-inspired living.
    This young lady epitomizes my belief that radical change simply needs a change of
    Her words encourage us to ensure that Heartland is used as best it can to further her
    absolutely reasonable yet generally ignored demands for the world to awaken to its
    Loving and caring is no longer an optional living extra!
    I m Severn Suzuki speaking for the Environmental Children s Organization .
    We re a group of 12 and 13 year olds trying to make a difference.
    We ve raised all the money to come here ourselves to come 5,000 miles to tell
    you adults you must change your ways.
    Coming up here today I have no hidden agenda. I am fighting for my future.
    Losing my future is not like losing an election or losing a few points on the
    stock-market. I am here to speak for all generations to come. I am here to
    speak on behalf of the starving people around the world whose cries go
    unheard. I am here to speak for the countless animals who are dying across
    this planet because they have nowhere left to go.
    I am afraid to go out in the sun now because of the holes in our ozone. I am
    afraid to breathe the air because I don t know what chemicals are in it. I used to
    go fishing in Vancouver, my home, with my dad until just a few years ago when
    we found the fish are full of cancers. And now we hear of animals and plants
    going extinct everyday, vanishing forever.
    In my life I have dreamt of seeing great herds of wild animals, jungles and
    rainforests full of birds and butterflies but now I wonder if they will even exist
    for my children to see. Did you have to worry about these things when you
    were my age? All this is happening before my eyes and yet you act as if we
    have all the time we want and all the solutions.
    I m only a child and I don t have all the solutions but I want you to realize,
    neither do you.
    You don t know how to fix the holes in our ozone.
    You don t know how to bring a salmon back up a dead stream.
    You don t know how to bring back an animal, now extinct.
    And you can t bring back the forest that once grew where now there is a
    If you don t know how to fix it please stop breaking it!
    You may be the representatives of your government, business, people,
    organizers or politicians but really you re mothers and fathers, sisters and
    brothers, aunts and uncles ..and all of you are someone s child.
    I m only a child and yet I know we re all part of a family 5 billion strong, in fact
    30 million species strong and borders and governments will never change
    I m only a child and yet I know we re all in this together and we should act as
    one single world toward one single goal.
    In my anger I am not blind and in my fear I am not afraid of telling the world
    how I feel.
    In my country we make so much waste. We buy and throw away, buy and throw
    away, buy and throw away and yet northern countries will not share with the
    needy, even when we have more than enough.
    We are afraid to share, we are afraid to let go of some of our wealth.
    In Canada we live the privileged life with plenty of food, water and shelter. We
    have watches, bicycles, computers, television sets the list could go on for
    two days.
    Two days ago, here in Brazil, we were shocked when we spent time with some
    children living on the streets.
    This is what one child told us: I wish I was rich and if I were I would give all
    the street children food, clothes, medicines, shelter, love and affection . If a
    child on the streets who has nothing is willing to share why are we who have
    everything still so greedy?
    I can t stop thinking that these are children my own age, that it makes a
    tremendous difference where you are born, that I could have been one of those
    street children. I could be a child starving in Somalia or a victim of war in the
    Middle East or a beggar in India.
    I am only a child yet I know that if all the money spent on war was spent on
    funding environmental issues, ending poverty and signing peace treaties what
    a wonderful place this world would be.
    At school, even in kindergarten, you teach us how to behave in the world.
    You teach us not to fight with others, to work things out, to respect others, to
    clean up our mess, not to hurt other creatures, to share, not to be greedy.
    Then why do you go out and do all the things you tell us not to do?
    Do not forget why you are attending these conferences,
    who you are doing this for: we are your own children.
    You are deciding what kind of a world we are growing up in.
    Parents should be able to comfort their children by saying Everything s going
    to be alright, it s not the end of the world and we re doing the best we can .
    But I don t think you can say that to us anymore.
    Are we even on your list of priorities?
    My Dad always says: You are what you do, not what you say .
    Well, what you do makes me cry at night.
    You grownups say you love us but I challenge you: please make your actions
    match up to your words.
    Severn Suzuki, Rio De Janeiro, June 1992
