“The Coming Anti-National Revolution”

laitman_264_01Opinion (Robert Schiller, Nobel Laureate in Economics, Professor of Economics at Yale University, author): “ For the past several centuries, the world has experienced a sequence of intellectual revolutions against oppression of one sort or another. These revolutions operate in the minds of humans and are spread – eventually to most of the world – not by war (which tends to involve multiple causes), but by language and communications technology. …

“I think the next such revolution, likely sometime in the twenty-first century, will challenge the economic implications of the nation-state. It will focus on the injustice that follows from the fact that, entirely by chance, some are born in poor countries and others in rich countries. As more people work for multinational firms and meet and get to know more people from other countries, our sense of justice is being affected.

“Thomas Paine’s pamphlet Common Sense, a huge bestseller in the Thirteen Colonies when it was published in January 1776, marked another such revolution, which was not identical with the Revolutionary War against Britain that began later that year (and had multiple causes). The reach of Common Sense is immeasurable, because it wasn’t just sold but was also read aloud at churches and meetings. …

“The same could be said of the gradual abolition of slavery, which was mostly achieved not by war, but by an emerging popular recognition of its cruelty and injustice. …

“All of the past ‘justice revolutions’ have stemmed from improved communications.”

My Comment: Everything depends on the connections between people. When they begin to feel they belong to a greater whole that is manifested in them subconsciously as the one force that manages them, the Creator, appears in them. Hence, the growing intellect appears in the recognition of dependency, in the new meanings that emerge from the discovery of the connection between us, which is not clear at the moment; it is revelation of the connection between all, the system of Adam (Man).
