The Freedom of the Collective and the Freedom of the Individual Are Equal
In our generation, the well-being of every individual is secured by the whole world, and hence the individual becomes enslaved to the whole world, like a wheel in a machine.
Therefore, the possibility of making good, happy, and peaceful conducts in one state is inconceivable when it is not so in all the countries in the world, and vice versa. In our time, the countries are all linked in the satisfaction of their needs of life, as individuals were in their families in earlier times. Therefore, we can no longer seek the well-being of one country, but only the well-being of the whole world because the benefit of each and every person in the world depends on the benefit of all the people in the whole world.
– Baal HaSulam, “Peace in the World”
