New Life #405 – An Ideal Society

New Life #405 – An Ideal Society
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel


Does a person have a conscience, what are the values of the ideal society, and how do we reach rules of ethics so it will be good for everyone?

The nature of the child operates according to what is good for his body. Later, he considers the bodies that surround him. This is already an ethic.

Some say it is not ethical to eat animals; others think that this is completely moral. So morality is something relative. Even the Nazis thought that they were building a society with high morals.

Only by transcending the ego do we achieve a higher morality. This process begins through the recognition of the evil in our nature.

Only if we change the nature of humans so that one will feel others instead of himself, will he relate to them well. This is a reversal of the worldview; instead of feeling what is good for me, I feel what is good for others.

In such a situation, society will seem like an ideal mechanism, each doing only what is good for everyone.
