Comment: Prices have risen in Israel for the first time in a long time! Basic bread has increased by 36%, and there have been sharp jumps in the price of eggs, dairy products, water, oil, energy, and so on.
It should not be like this—these are essential things. The state should give away all the money, open everything in order not to increase prices for these items.
My Response: We need to steal less! This is my conclusion. Essential products cannot become more expensive under any circumstances.
Question: How to work with this?
Answer: There is nothing to work with regarding price increases! Rising prices are a consequence; this is how they settle down everything.
Comment: Not only them; it is a consequence of world politics, everything that is happening around.
My Response: It does not matter. We are a small country and we could somehow balance ourselves in a different way.
After all, we have a semi-socialist economy. Therefore, we could increase the cost of all kinds of luxury items. By doing this, we would be keeping the price of bread, milk, eggs and other staples at the same level.
It is better to raise prices for what is not so necessary for a person and keep the prices of necessities at the level they were.
Question: This means that in our previous life, in principle, everything was right. Bread, 12 kopecks; sausage, 2.20. I even remember the prices! So, the message was in principle correct then, socialist??
Question: Do you want to go back to socialism?
Answer: No, of course not!
Question: The country, in theory, as you say, should be semi-socialist?
Answer: Not socialist, just caring about society. This is not socialism, but concern for the nation.
Question: And how can we make this concern for the nation the main thing, and not another parliament seat?
Answer: You will not find anyone like that. The environment is such that any person who climbs up becomes like everyone else.
Question: Is it possible for a person not to become like everyone else? What should he do?
Answer: To do this, it is necessary to transform a person into a Kabbalist who would have a connection with spirituality, who would feel what he lives for and why people should exist. And because of it, he would move them forward.
Question: That is, the one who would like to break away from egoism?
Answer: Yes. It is all very difficult, but we will come to it anyway. When? This is not yet obvious.
