Question: There are great villains in the world like Hitler and Stalin. There is a feeling that there is an invincible force behind them as if it were the Creator, and then they lose this power. Why do things happen this way?
Answer: If a person is not led to connection with the Creator, he is simply managed by the upper force, especially such great negative people like Hitler and Stalin, or great positive people.
A person has no control over this. From the perspective of the wisdom of Kabbalah, all of humanity is enslaved, they are operated by animal egoism, except for those who reach contact with the Creator or who want to be aimed at this contact. So, we cannot demand anything from them. After all, they do not know how to act, how upper providence manages them, and why they are forced to do things one way or another.
Of course the evil they can inflict on the world must be limited, but we cannot condemn them for that. We need to show and explain to them how to correctly reveal the true force of nature that manages us so that we will reveal it.
We cannot relate to them differently. I understand that on the corporeal level you may hate them and might be ready to destroy them and cannot wish them anything good. But on the other hand, we need to understand that a person is enslaved and controlled by the forces that the Creator inserts into a person that operate in him. A person is the creation of the Creator.
Only if, in addition to the terrible attributes the Creator has given a person, one acquires the method of correcting these attributes, which means the ability to correct them, is it possible to ask and to demand from such a person: “What have you done with what you have received? Do you implement the method of correction? Do you use it correctly under the conditions you were given?”
But if a person has not been given the conditions to correct himself, how can you demand anything from him?
If we look at the world from the perspective of the wisdom of Kabbalah, we need to relate to this person differently. We need to see such people as the creation of the Creator. We all have the basic attributes that we did not choose. We did not choose where to be born, how to be brought up, etc. Perhaps I also would like to have been born and raised in a different family, in a different society, in a different country, at a different time.
No one can choose that, so why should anyone come to me with a complaint: “Why do you do things one way and not another?” I do it because this is how I was brought up and this is how the attributes that the Creator has given me developed, that is all.
This is the reason that the wisdom of Kabbalah guides us to a totally different perception of reality so that we will not have any complaints to anyone but to ourselves. Do you want to correct the world? Aim at the Creator and try, demand, ask, and act through Him to correct the world.
