Answer: The unity of society is not necessarily communism in the form that was presented in the Soviet Union. On the other hand, much of what was at the basis (not the implementation) of the Soviet Union were good ideas and wonderful goals. But they fell into the hands of lowly officials, and with this everything fell to either Stalin or to the bureaucracy, or to the destroyers or enemies of the people.
But in principle, the concept was correct. The fact is that entire idea was not properly implemented, and although much was said about education, the work of education itself was not carried out.
So when the party leaders, all of the elite, the millions who were found in control, didn’t set an example, then certainly nothing worked. In an identical manner we command children: We don’t want to do something ourselves, but we demand it of them. But the children understand that while we demand this, we lie and play about it, so they won’t do anything, and if they do, it is only for the sake of appearing they do and not really correcting themselves.
The same thing happened in Russia. But nevertheless, we just have to show that the solidarity and unity were not for Russia; everything remained just talk. And most importantly, nothing was realized there through the upper force.
By the “Upper force” we mean the power of unity between people. If tens, hundreds, thousands of people, all the people, as is written in the Torah, were to unite, then we would create or naturally discover within us this great and singular power; and it would correct everything. For all that happens with us in our world, personally and all together, on all levels, is all a lack of conformity with the unified power of nature.
Nature approaches us and shows us its integrality, unity, and interdependence. And we, on the contrary, run away from this, separate, detach, move away, hide behind our computers, and don’t want to know anything. As a results, we have to understand that nature will push and squeeze us until we agree to this.
