Answer: We are. A good environment is the level that is higher than me. If I turn to the environment from below (1) and value the friends by seeing them as greater than me (2), I receive the right impression from them (3).
Today the upper level for us is the teacher, the group, and the study. For the “nations of the world” it is us, the Bnei Baruch organization, in other words, mutual guarantee.
Answer: The 1% is much stronger than the 99% because it is higher in its quality. It says: “A righteous is the foundation of the world.”
Similarly the vegetative level in nature is above all the inanimate matter in the universe, and the animate level is higher than the vegetative. It is a pyramid: No matter how large the herd is, it will follow one shepherd. Mass has nothing to do with the active force in reality; billions of people are a very weak level. They have no power, are confused, and are only willing to argue, quarrel, and destroy the world; they have already exhausted all their creativity.
Therefore it says: “You are the fewest of all the nations.” A few thousand are enough for the world and even less in order to manage the world. What is more, the global media were actually prepared precisely for that.
On the whole a certain plan was prepared from Above and we have to do our job and to be sure that if we do it correctly the whole world will be fine.
