Fighting Crime With The Power Of Social Influence

laitman_2008-11-13_6700A question I received: There is a surge in organized crime today. How will the judicial system work in a corrected society? How will crime be fought there?

My Answer: If psychologists and Kabbalists organize a correct society, where everyone is influenced by the environment, then this influence will make every person act in a way that’s opposite to his egoistic nature.

This will work because every person seeks fame, acceptance and appreciation, while loathing disgrace. In addition, one is consumed by envy of others. By putting these impulses to correct use, we can help people act in a socially desirable way.
