Answer: You call this “union,” but I don’t see anything of the sort. In my eyes, there is no real union. It is rather similar to a plot between two men who united in order to beat the third one up, or an alliance of thieves, conspiring to rob a bank. They have great solidarity and really care about each other.
So, from the perspective of Kabbalah, the people chanting slogans on the streets are bonded much like two egoists who want to make some extra money at the expense of the third. They lack a correct form of unity, and therefore they will get nothing. We cannot appeal to them yet, but in fact, we have to explain to them that the union must be integral, for the benefit of the entire nation. It is impossible to act in unison while everyone pursues his own shallow selfish interest. In this case, one will always benefit at the expense of the other.
After all, we have one “treasury” for all, and we can’t use it for our personal needs. If we do, someone else will lack afterwards. So why should you be the one to receive a “gift”?
All this must be taken into account. Today, around the world, such initiatives will meet positive results only on one condition: if we care about the welfare of society and are committed to mutual bestowal. Then we will begin protecting the interests of all layers of society and thereby succeed.
If we don’t think in terms of integration and do not feel concerned for the whole society, we will fail, and no-one will benefit but rabid egoists. But even they won’t gain pleasure from this and will keep limping from crisis to crisis together with everyone.
