We have to sit at the study table again [after the collapse of this project in Russia] in order to re-examine the socialistic idea [“from each according to his ability, to each according to his need”] in the light of facts and contradictions that manifest in our times.
And we shouldn’t be afraid of making a conceptual breakthrough since preserving life is above everything. [We shouldn’t be afraid to disclose that the source of correction of man and society is the upper Light. Facing the threat of destruction and having undergone a certain process of development, people will be able to apprehend this.]
– Baal HaSulam, Newspaper "The Nation"
