Baal HaSulam, The Writings of the Last Generation: The socialistic ideal requires ripening in one’s heart for at least three whole generations, and peace and general agreement. Therefore, many more attempts and cycles will the world endure before it comes to fruition, but there is no easier way to ripen the idea than through religion.
Humanity will still reach the materialization of the socialistic ideal, this is the program that exists within nature. But it will either reach it quickly and easily or through a long and difficult route.
Baal HaSulam writes: “The socialistic ideal requires ripening in one’s heart for at least three whole generations…” He is speaking of the complete realization of this idea within a society, not just its acceptance, but a general agreement with it.
Question: Why does it take specifically three generations for something to change?
Answer: I think, first, there has to be complete detachment from a previous state, then the transition, and finally the acceptance of a new state. In order to go from one state to another there always need to be three intermediary states.
