Communism Turns Out To Be Good!

Dr. Michael LaitmanBaal HaSulam, “The Last Generation”: The world is one family, and the framework of altruistic communism should ultimately encircle the entire world with an equal standard of living for everybody.

Question: So it looks like Kabbalah must bring communism into the world?

Answer: Our problem is that we don’t understand the true meaning of words. When we utter the word “Torah,” we visualize a “holy” book; when we speak of “commandments,” we think of some physical acts that we have to perform; and the word “faith” for us is when we blindly believe some stories we are told.

In other words, we replace the truth with false ideas. In fact, commandments are steps of correction of the egoistic desire, and the Torah is the force that reforms them.

The same pertains to the word “communism” that derives from the word “a commune” and reads equality, unity, and brotherhood. But great egoists used these words for their low purposes opposite to communism.

They established the worst dictatorship in history: a dictatorship of the minority over majority, a regime of complete spiritual suppression and violence, which not only used a person as a work force, a slave, but attempted to completely and forcefully eliminate in man the desire for pleasure, egoism.

But in fact, “communism” is a very exalted, beautiful word. It implies brotherly love among humans who live according to the law of mutual guarantee bonded by one desire.

  1. Honestly, I’ve never been so happy as I have been since I started running with my lemming brothers. Happily running toward that marvelous place where all distinctions that make us look or be different from our lemming brothers are happily erased. There is a joy that arises when we begin parroting our slogans! Today we sang over and over ‘From each according to his ability and to each according to his need’! I haven’t felt so spiritual since the Human Potential Movement of the 70s and 80s! It’s so reassuring when I feel like I’m in an EST or PSI World Seminar led by Rav Laitman! Werner Erhard would be jealous!
