New Life #132 – Mass Media, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
The mass media could transmit a soccer game on TV according to the integral approach and teach all the viewers about the value of unity and connection. The killing of soccer fans in stadiums indicates that we have reached the edge of human development based on egoistic competition. Marx realized that our capitalistic society based on egoistic consumerism would ultimately lead us to dissatisfaction and despair. He predicted that humanity would turn toward cooperation and full connection between everyone. The American god is collapsing as human desire changes and we increasingly ask ourselves questions regarding the meaning of life. Where is our happiness beyond a proper standard of living? When the inclination is toward connection, there can be no hatred between the fans at all. The players will educate the viewers by modelling how to nullify the self and serve the group. The role of the coach will be to educate the team members to be as one, integral unit. The commentators in the studio could speak about mutual understanding, connection, coordination, and interpersonal harmony. Nature is pushing us to find unlimited happiness and satisfaction in the connections between us, and the mass media has an important role to play in our evolution.
