Karl Marx felt all the Kabbalistic conclusions rather well and expressed them quite openly, but at the same time did so unclearly for small people like Lenin and his associates. Baal HaSulam writes about this.
Karl Marx’ original works clearly indicate that he supposed that once people began to work with their egoism, they would realize that it is impossible. Technically, this is what people in Russia felt once they started building socialism after the Revolution. But they followed a path that Karl Marx definitely never thought would happen: the path of force.
When you are setting a condition of “love thy neighbor,” you cannot impose this condition, this law, through force. This was a Russian invention. This can never exist!
But Bolsheviks turned everything this way, and at the end they created terror and killed forty million people. Still, this did not lead to anything. You cannot artificially change human nature according to your own way, especially through force. It is impossible. When referring to nature, can you really do anything against it?
This ideology of so-called “love of neighbor” was imposed through force all the way until the final years of the soviet regime, until people had become completely disappointed in everything. It sounded nice on the outside, but we understand that it was nothing but terror on the inside.
Karl Marx assumed that people would realize the need to come together and would understand that there is no place for exploitation, that capitalism is corrupt, and that socialization of means and results of production is necessary. We will come to this anyway. The entire global crisis is leading towards this. We cannot avoid this.
Karl Marx wrote out all these Kabbalistic conditions as economic laws: Every person must be compensated for their work only with what they need to exist in our world. This refers to whatever is needed for every person to exist normally: an apartment, a job, a family, vacations, pension, healthcare, childhood education, everything that one needs on the level of our world, in our normal human society. Every person must have this.
But everything beyond the necessities becomes public property. And it must only be used for the benefit of the society, and only to the necessary extent for this society. Only then we will be in balance with nature.
