Unity In Yearning For A Common Future

Dr. Michael LaitmanEurope includes a number of nations and as many languages, opinions, and ideologies. How would it be possible to begin to unify such an egoistic, fragmented situation?

I think that this is possible and even more than in any other place in the world because due to this fragmentation, it is felt how weak Europe is, how much it has lost its power in the world, its culture, and its spiritual and ethical foundation. What is left of it? It is devouring itself, and, in addition to that, immigrants are streaming into it from all over the world, conquering parts of it.

Today, it exists thanks to the past, thanks to several decades of development after World War II. I think that if you scrutinize this situation—highlight, examine, and describe it correctly—it can become a springboard for bringing the Europeans to a good upheaval.

I have met with the leaders of the European Union. They have no plan for the future; the future is absolutely lost to them. Emptiness and lack of faith in the future is all that is left to them because they don’t have any kind of mechanism in their hands for correcting the current European situation.

Europe truly needs unity, but not under one financial roof. This is the worst possible thing to invent, so nobody wants it, but there is unity in yearning for a common future.

This unity doesn’t exist now, but, in the future, they will need to reach this. So, there will be possibilities for Europe to survive and remain a strong continent. Let it  be a United States of Europe, speaking different languages with different cultures and environments, still it will be a  united states.

We call upon them and  explain how to do this. After all, in the wisdom of Kabbalah, there is a method—as it is written, “Love covereth all transgressions” (Proverbs 10:12)—and we need to give that to Europe.

For this, it is necessary to rise above all the differences and conflicts to the point of rejecting the reality among us. We know that between neighbors, for the most part, there are disagreements, but if there is a desire, it is possible to rise above them and attain an agreement so that our “Concorde” will fly and not fall.

I think that everything must begin from consolidation between the groups, from understanding that this process is the most important thing for the continent. When you begin to engage in unity between the European groups, you will feel the need to unify within each group.

Then, you truly will begin to work among yourselves, organizing meetings, conventions, and putting together a plan of action; and to strengthen your group in every nation, you must expand it, disseminate, and so forth.

After the ground is ready, it will be possible to organize a large, serious, and true convention for all of Europe. I consider this to be the most important thing. However, again, this requires work on all levels: each one within himself, we within a group, we in dissemination around a group, we in connection between the groups, and we in connection between nations on a continental scale.

This must be done. We won’t escape from this.
