In the News (Council of Europe): “International Day of Democracy 2017, Statement by Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland
“Democracy, human rights and the rule of law fit together to the benefit of citizens in Europe and across the world. Democratic governance creates freedom, fosters opportunity and counters corruption in society. …
“On September 15 – and every day – let democrats hold their heads high and speak for their ideals.”
My Comment: There is no democracy in any communities or countries. In fact, democracy is impossible, because it is impossible for the masses to rule the masses. And if we choose someone, the question is,, how does he get chosen and who is behind it?
Democracy cannot exist by definition.
When could it be possible? Only if we take love and bestowal as the highest principle, which is above nature and above people, and commit to carry it through, can we talk about democracy. Practically, democracy is the corrected humanity facing the higher principle—the Creator.
Without the Creator, democracy cannot exist because it is the highest principle. And there can be no democracy without implementing this principle. And the wisdom of Kabbalah explains how to do it.
A fair society is possible then, as Baal HaSulam writes in The Last Generation, everyone is absolutely equal, all complement each other, and all together we form one single whole. And the Creator, which is the upper force, will be revealed within this society. Together they will form a state that is called the last generation, which is the correct society.
