Mass protests are shaking the planet. Can protests really affect change in the world? What are people lacking in order to get into the right cooperation with the countries’ governments and make them really work for the needs of a particular society and the world as a whole?
The answer is connection. Protests give people a certain kind of unity, but it is a unity that is induced. They have an announced goal, several mottos, and blinding emotions. The main point of protest is “against,” not “for.” Therefore, those who come to protest connect around their personal hatred regarding something, or because of the external threat. As soon as it’s gone, or “a dog is given a piece of food” to calm down, the artificial unity disappears as it never existed before.
Can we get out of this locked circle?
Yes. Just as how hatred nourishes hatred, love nourishes love. Therefore, if people connect “for” something—a common goal aimed at building a new prosperous society—and show the government their unity “as one man with one heart,” their needs and requests will be immediately met and fulfilled.
How do we find that point of “for” unity? The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us about it. See Less
