New Life #824 – Democracy And The Rule Of The People
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel
Human nature is egoistic and everyone has his own interests, so there is no chance that we will ever reach the state in which the people rule.
States were established because strong individuals wanted to build a mechanism to help them control the people. In the past, the elite ruled directly; today they rule through the media. Everything is managed as a fixed game.
It is only by ascending above egoism that the people can become sovereign and replace its leaders and advance toward connection. In the connected state, there is no minority or majority, there are no interests, and everyone aspires to greater connection and mutual love.
Society will make sure that every individual receives all that he needs according to the rule of “love thy friends as thyself,” and everyone will contribute his share to society.
