Building The Future Society, Part 12

laitman_263Not to Harm Society

Baal HaSulam “Building the Future Society,” Item 30:  The freedom of the individual must be kept as long as it is not harmful to society. However, one who wishes to leave in favor of another society must not be detained in any way, even if it is harmful to society, though it should be done in such a way that the society is not ruined altogether.

A person can think, speak, and do everything he wants only if it does not diverge from the direction and intention of society. But if it harms, then he has no place in this society. It’s natural.

Question: Did you and your teacher talk about the principles of the society of the future, or is it still so far from us that one should not think about it?

Answer: It doesn’t matter. These principles automatically flow from what we teach in Kabbalah, from approaching spirituality.

Question: If we take these principles, make a code of certain laws out of them, and offer this to society, will people understand this?

Answer: No, they won’t understand. On the contrary, it can push a person away, because it will oblige him. And if obliged, then this is not good.
From KabTV’s “Fundamentals of Kabbalah,” 2/7/19
