Forget About Equality And Justice

Dr. Michael LaitmanThere cannot be equality and justice in our world since we are not equal to begin with. So why do we have complaints about different people if nature itself made us so different? Why do we aspire for equality if it is against nature?

One percent of the rich control 35% of total wealth. 10% of humanity is composed of geniuses, the hardworking, and the talented, and it has always been that way! Regardless of geographical location, no more than 20% of people are wealthy. This phenomenon is known as “the Pareto principle.” In addition, even within the upper 20% of society there is the upper 20%, and so on. Ultimately, whoever is on the top of society has the greatest control and is most influential. It is only natural that this phenomenon is contrary to the “average” scale of the Gaussian distribution.

We shouldn’t think that it is a result of our egoism; rather, we should understand that we don’t create this relationship by ourselves, but receive it from nature. It is the same in the spiritual Partzuf (the soul), where a tiny amount (we also say 20%, as Rabash coined it, although it is much less than that) goes to the filling (Toch of the Partzuf), and all the rest remains empty (Sof of the Partzuf), to such an extent that instead of a circle we only fill a thin line (Kav Ein Sof).

But in that line, according to the level of the connection of individuals, a process of integration begins (groups), and then on the “beastly” level everyone receives according to their reasonable needs, while all the upper fulfillment takes place in the collective desire. Therefore, the question of control and distribution never comes up!

But in our world it is naïve to demand equality and justice because inequality and  injustice are predetermined by nature, in order to force us to rise, in order for us to correct this natural inequality on the “human” level.
