Baal HaSulam, “The Last Generation”: It is written, “The voice of the people is the voice of the Almighty.” Indeed, this means that according to reality, they have chosen the least of all evils, and to that extent they always follow the good path. However, of course we must change reality so they can accept the utterly complete path. And it is true that the power of keeping in the masses in general chooses for them a way according to the situation. For this reason, once they have corrupted the interpretation of Torah and Mitzvot [commandments], they have become rebellious. However, it is a sacred duty to find a true interpretation in society, and then it will be to the contrary: The power of keeping in the masses will coerce the keeping of Torah and Mitzvot.
If a society connects correctly within it, then it unites together and becomes a single organization, a single entity, a single force, a single property of mutual love. Specifically, the correct unity arouses the revelation of the higher force that is hidden in us, a characteristic of full bestowal and love called the Creator.
Unity protects us from our own self-interest! Every harmful force is within us. If we are directed against each other, if we don’t want to connect together, then we make it possible for our egoism to emerge, to develop within us, and to be revealed outside of us as external pressure in the form of all kinds of haters. We seemingly project them onto some kind of screen outside of us, and it seems to us that these are criminals, fascists, terrorists, drug pushers, murderers, and so forth. But this is in fact the projection of our inner characteristics; we haven’t “locked” ourselves onto love for each other and we have allowed them to develop freely. So now they apply pressure on us from the outside.
Only through our internal correction is it possible to balance this system and be released from the external evil.
