Question: We say that due to our unity, the situation in the world has changed: It has become more peaceful; there is less terrorism. If a secret service employee heard us, he would say: “We are working from morning till night, neutralizing terrorists, so the situation has improved because of us, not because you are uniting together.” What can you tell this skeptic or is it better not to contradict him?
Answer: I usually do not enter into any debate with anyone. Let them talk; it does not matter. If they think they are doing it better, so be it.
Besides that, I do not think that we can replace services for safety and security, etc. because humanity is far from being able to advance consciously. And those people who want to do harm must come up against an organized public order.
I have nothing to tell him; he does not see and will never understand what we are doing if he does not come to our courses.
