The Naked King
In the News (from The Independent): “King Willem-Alexander delivered a message to the Dutch people from the government in a nationally televised address: the welfare state of the 20th century is gone.
“In its place a ‘participation society’ is emerging, in which people must take responsibility for their own future and create their own social and financial safety nets, with less help from the national government. …
“’The shift to a ‘participation society’ is especially visible in social security and long-term care,’ the king said, reading out to lawmakers a speech written for him by Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s government.
“’The classic welfare state of the second half of the 20th century in these areas in particular brought forth arrangements that are unsustainable in their current form.’ …
“The king said Tuesday some costs for the care of the elderly, for youth services, and for job retraining after layoffs will now be pushed back to the local level, in order to make them better tailored to local circumstances. …
“Willem-Alexander said that nowadays, people expect and ‘want to make their own choices, to arrange their own lives, and take care of each other.”

It is extremely ironic that a “king” who, by virtue of the title, lives quite well, with or without personal contribution or struggle ( supported by his taxpayers), gives advice to the lower classes on the need for a shift to a participation society. Are they planning on being included in this society? For an integral society to function, it must truly be integral, which would certainly not include a very small percentage of the world controlling 99% of its assets while giving advice to the masses on how to tighten their belts, work harder, in order to fund more palaces for the same group. I think a bit more Ohr Hassadim is needed in that direction. I hope you are able to spread it. It is also true that a healthy world is one in which there is “balance” for all things. Unfortunately the world’s elite do not appear to get that (nor do most of us) so it is looking like we are going to be taking the path of pain and suffering.
