Question: The first settlers who came to the Holy Land began their activities with communist communities called kibbutzim. These are special agricultural settlements that have no analogue in the world. Is their creation related to the altruistic communism that Baal HaSulam writes about?
Answer: For thousands of years, the Jewish people have always had a craving for unity in parallel with a completely different direction—towards separation and estrangement. Jews have always appeared at the head of unification and disunity.
Question: In the 90s of the 20th century, the charter of the kibbutzim proclaimed a general duty to work, equality of rights in the community and in the economy, and the refusal to use hired labor. Today it has practically ceased to exist in its previous form. Over a short time, everything had disappeared.
Is it still necessary to strive to live by the rules of the kibbutzim?
Answer: This is a big step towards a correct society, when there are no means of production in private hands, when everything is common, one commune.
Communism is a Jewish invention. This is what the science of Kabbalah is talking about. This is how a society should be.
Question: Kabbalah talks about the method of revealing the Creator to the created beings in this world. We are talking about communism. What is the connection between them?
Answer: The connection is very simple: you must create a certain society in which these conditions, these laws, these forces, these properties of the Creator would be revealed.
Question: Is communism a means for revealing the Creator?
Answer: Real communism (not the Soviet one) is an ideal social structure in which the Creator is revealed.
