What happens when a country collapses in a global world? And how does that, also, increase hatred towards Israel?
2.3 million people are fleeing Venezuela, half of whom are undernourished, as their economically depleted country faces a critical food shortage.
Sadly, there is no immediate way to help the millions of suffering Venezuelans.
The absurdity of our world is that there is more than enough food, clothing, and medical solutions to satisfy the basic needs of all citizens of earth, and yet, up to fifty percent of all the food produced globally is thrown to waste, while trillions of dollars are spent on global warfare.
As we head into the near future, these two opposite trends will climax: on the one hand, we will witness more and more economic crises, social unrest, hunger, sickness and human suffering. And at the same time, we are entering a highly technological and hyper-connected era with robots, self-driving cars and other developments made possible by artificial intelligence. The ability to produce an abundance of everything we need everywhere will be accessible at the touch of a button.
Between these two trends it will become as clear as a bell that nothing is missing in our world besides healthy and positive relations between human beings, to enable consideration, mutual concern and effective connections across all the inhabitants of earth. This will be the only way to help the billions of people who will suffer.
But what will enable humans to see each other as a single, global family? History shows that the love of power, money, and honor, the human ego, always has the upper hand. Humans seem to prefer to fight each other rather than embrace each other. This appears to be the bitter reality of our nature, and any portrayal of a global human family appears downright utopian.
In order to achieve a viable and lasting positive connection between human beings, so that we can reorganize society to satisfy everyone’s basic needs, a unique method for human connection is required.
Only one nation was founded on the basis of the natural, universal connection between humans. This method is what turned them into a people in the first place, and they lived by that method for a while. But when they abandoned the method, they began to wander the world, and their true origin was almost completely forgotten.
“Israel is the heart of the whole world,” writes the Book of Zohar almost 2,000 years ago, “just as the organs of the body could not exist in the world even for a moment without the heart, so all the nations cannot exist in the world without Israel.”
The Book of Zohar reveals the deeply rooted network connecting all people and all nations. Israel is a central hub within the network. However, it has forgotten how it was created in the first place and the natural role it played in the network.
As these crises, such as that of Venezuela, will continue to manifest across the planet, human suffering and frustration will accumulate and be converted into hatred towards Israel. Beneath the surface, in the world’s connected subconscious, anger and resentment will inflame towards the Jewish people. When and where will anti-Semitic events erupt above the surface? No one can predict this without seeing and fully understanding the network that connects all of humanity.
If we saw the inner map of connections, we would be startled. The hatred that threatens to erupt in our direction would push us to quickly join hands and fulfill our role towards the nations of the world, by being “a light unto nations.”
We would see that Venezuela’s crisis is yet another clarion call for us to do our part in the connected
