The EU is in crisis. It cannot be reformed because the EU is not a finished structure. There cannot be a good connection between egoists—interests diverge, the structure disintegrates.
The solution: break up before another war breaks out, or start uniting the people/nations of the EU rather than businesses…

After the destruction of the Temple, relationships fell from the level of the heart to the bodily level of communication through hands and language. Instead of connecting the hearts, they began following instructions, checking how to speak to others. That’s how they separated from the main law of the Torah, “love your neighbor as yourself,” not even remembering it!

Following the destruction of the Temple, a good connection, it is impossible for hearts to connect lest it become an outlet for ego-hatred. This is why on the earthy degree laws of behavior were established that reflect spiritual laws.
If there is no love for the neighbor, then at least (!) don’t do to another that which you do not wish for yourself.

After the destruction of the Temple (their spiritual connection with the Creator), they decided to reduce their demands for bestowal and love—to superficial demands. They began interpreting the Torah’s laws and conditions as external laws of behavior, not requiring internal correction of the heart—egoism.

Precisely the small man, who is below, far from the Creator, transmits his request upward till Malchut of the world of Infinity, evoking the light of Infinity along all the degrees and thus from above downwards, records his name, his contribution to the general correction

Unification must emerge BETWEEN hatred and love, even for oneself. Without destroying anything, but only by adding goodness. This is the middle line, “the golden mean,” in which we reveal the Creator and unite with Him, attaining the eternal and perfect existence.

Correction lies in ADDING the good force to the evil, egoistic one. The Creator created the evil force. And He will give us the good force —per our request, as written “He who creates light and who creates darkness.” Everything comes form the Creator. We must connect the light and darkness together so “the darkness will shine as light.”

Every person is right inside of his egoism, but for the common truth and justice, we must rise above the differences. We must come to love the differences between us; we can build love only thanks to them—above them, learn the middle line, how to rise above man’s egoistic nature, in faith above reason.

The corrected creation exists not by destroying egoism, but by building connection-understanding-love above it. The nation of Israel was forged in Babylon out of 70 nations in order to create, within the disagreements, above the separation, love above hatred—and to exist precisely between them (the middle line).

The nation of Israel must show the world an example of unity on 2 degrees, as written, “Love covers all sins.” We must learn not to annihilate the disagreements, but to create connection, understanding and love precisely above them. By combining love-hate, plus-minus, sweet-bitter.

Unity in society is not attained by changing each individual or one’s attitude to others. On the contrary, without changing our opinions, we must rise above them, above all the disagreements and as we cover them, we connect with each other. There’s no other way to attain unity.

In Abraham’s times, the nation of Israel was formed as a group of his students. Abraham asked the Creator: how do I fulfill the mission, attain general correction? The Creator answered: Only by being exiled to Egypt—enormous egoism. And then by gradually coming out of it…

Egyptian exile: exile from connection and brotherly love into Pharaoh’s slavery, when egoism rules over the desire to connect between people. The egoistic desire that separates us is called Pharaoh. But after suffering, 10 plagues, egoism-Pharaoh expels us out of itself!

Without the Egyptian plagues, suffering, we can’t come out of Egypt, for we have enjoyed being in egoism, as we do now. And we, too, will receive the ten plagues—blows to Pharaoh, our egoism, which is inside each of us and all of us together, to help us break free, come out it.

Separated from egoism, Pharaoh, we can move on to the stage of its correction by the quality of bestowal, by Light (Torah). We pledge to be in mutual guarantee and unity, we want to receive the force that will unite us. Therefore, we receive the force of bestowal and the method of correction—the Torah!

For 40 years—degrees, we undergo correction in the will to bestow above egoism—in the desert. Then comes the correction of Receiving for the sake of bestowal, the Land of Israel. We build the desire to love in unity, the 1st Temple. It gets destroyed. We build the 2nd Temple. It gets destroyed. We fall into egoism completely. We mix our desires with those of the nations of the world.

And every generation that does not build the temple, it is as if it is destroying it. Why has the exile been prolonged?”

In the 16th century the ARI reveals the method of correcting the world’s egoism—Kabbalah. Vital, the ARI’s student: “…deliverance is not coming. There is no cure for the destruction of the Temple, it is already 1504. Hope has run out.”

“Why isn’t it coming? Because we are not demanding the correction. We have no need for correction. We must try to achieve good relationships on our own, understand that we are unable to, and ask for help. As a result of our efforts to unite, we’ll understand what to ask from the Creator. This means waiting for the Messiah—the force of correction.”

Another 500 years have passed… Baal Shem Tov asked the Messiah: When are you coming? He answered: When my sources spread into the world. Meaning, when Kabbalah is revealed. So that people will want the correction, will understand how it will come to them. In the mean time, we are destroying the planet with our growing egoism.
