An Ideological Difference

laitman_600_02The Torah, “Numbers,” 22:4: And Moab said unto the elders of Midian: “Now will this multitude lick up all that is round about us, as the ox licketh up the grass of the field.” And Balak the son of Zippor was king of Moab at that time.

The people of Moab fear that their ego will have nothing to feed on and that they will not be able to live according to the old laws, which means for a better corporeal life.

A person feels good in the world today: he fills his world with culture, science, builds a successful family, and tries to behave nicely. Everything blossoms and it is possible to reach such a life by communism and equality. So what is the difference if we establish communism and equality here, now, in this world, or whether we yearn to ascend to spirituality? The difference is simple: such ideas will lead to nothing in this world.

This is an ideological difference and therefore it is very difficult to reveal. Because eventually the outcome that both Kabbalists and altruists wish to reach seems the same and quite normal on the level of our world.

Although Kabbalists have yet to convince people that it is impossible to prosper in this way on the level of our world and that we have to reach it by studying the upper world; they also have to explain that it isn’t for the sake of our world, since it is merely an intermediate level on which a person stands on one leg in order to ascend to the next level.

Comment: What if you come to people who live in order to build a home, plant a tree, and raise children and tell them that this isn’t the purpose of life?

Answer: People today don’t see that as a special goal anymore, we have reached the end. Does anyone want to have a normal family and think about how to keep it? A person loses these desires, impulses, urges, and options at a young age these days.

As an adult, a person still tries to find a soul mate and perhaps even have a child, since after all he must do something until old age. But in the end it doesn’t work out. People today start a family when they are about 40, and then they break it up when they reach 50 although there is nowhere they can run to but the graveyard, to which the way is more or less a straight line.

It is clear that the concept of a family is gradually disappearing and people don’t want children in whom they have to invest 25-30 years either. A person has nothing left in life. So now it isn’t so difficult for people to understand, because we actually turn to their general feeling of disappointment. The media repeatedly presents ruined countries on TV, and this is the future of the whole world! We will soon see Europe just as we see Syria today. Can you imagine wild wolves roaming the ruins from Western to Eastern Europe?

Question: Do you mean that the Barbarians will come out of the woods and invade the cities?

Answer: They are the same Europeans who have turned into complete barbarians. They have no power or reason to conceal it and everything that was concealed internally is coming out. Their whole cultural structure will evaporate over time. It is the same in every person.

If you dig a bit more deeply you will see that the external wrapping immediately falls off and you don’t even need to scratch it off.

Question: Do you believe that they have no protection because of the Islamic invasion to other countries?

Answer: No, but the Islamists are stronger ideologically and there is nothing to be done about that. No religion can confront them since all the religions are already dying these days.
