Educating People

272Question: Today, people go out to all kinds of demonstrations without yet realizing that they are fighting not against injustice, uneven incomes, poor education, but against their own uselessness.

Now it is not only individual professions that are disappearing, but entire layers of the economy upon which countries were based. Not only high-tech, but also the most ordinary industries are letting people go.

Soon there will be no cashiers, there will be no people who distribute and receive. All this will be done by machines and algorithms.

Now we come to what we were talking about 15 years ago: how to occupy people. You have to pay them a basic income to keep them busy.

Today, they are already starting to talk about it: “Yes, we will pay people money. They should come and study history, culture, anything, water trees, plant new parks for 2 to 3 hours a day.” But they should treat it not as work but as some kind of action.

Do you see in this the first steps toward a society that you have been talking about all the time?

Answer: In general, this can be seen as a kind of a first step. But how are we going to raise a new person, someone who will have, not only the property of reception, but also the property of bestowal? And here, of course, people need to be educated.

This is why we say that they will be able to study a few hours a day, learn the mechanism of bestowal, listen to lectures, and discuss them among themselves.

Question: But until Israel realizes this, the rest of the world will not? Or can it run in parallel?

Answer: No, I do not think it can be done in parallel. It still has to come from here. The inner root of changing the world, whatever it may be and wherever it goes, still comes from the Jewish people.
