The Wisdom of Kabbalah

Building the Future Society – Principles of the Future Society – Part I

1.  Communism is an ideal, meaning it is moral. The goal “to work according to one’s ability and receive according to one’s needs” testifies to that.

2.  Every moral must have a basis that necessitates it; education and public opinion are a very unsound basis, and the proof of that is Hitler.

3.  Because any concept of the majority is sure to triumph, it is needless to say that the carrying out of the corrected communism is by the majority of the public. Thus, they must establish the moral level of the majority of the public on a basis that will necessitate and guarantee that the corrected communism will never be corrupted. The preordained ideal in humans is insufficient, as too few posses it, and they are insignificant compared to the majority of the public.

4.  Religion is the only basis assured to raise the level of the collective to the moral level of “working according to the ability and receiving according to the need.”

5.  Communism must be turned away from the concept, “What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is yours”, which is sodomite rule, to the concept, “What’s mine is yours and what’s yours is yours”, meaning absolute altruism. When the majority of the public accepts this rule de facto, it will be time to “work according to the ability and receive according to the need.” the sign would be that every one would work like a contract-worker. Thus, until most people are ready to bestow upon their fellow person, the altruistic communist regime must not be established.

6.  It is forbidden to nationalize the property before the public reaches this moral level. The collective will not have fuel for work before there is a reliable moral factor in the public.

7.  If one is forbidden to exploit one’s friends, why should a nation be allowed to exploit its fellow nations? Which occupancy justifies one nation enjoying the land more than other nations? Therefore, international communism must be founded.

As there are individuals who have been privileged by diligence, chance, or inheritance from ancestry to a greater share than the negligent, quite so among the nations. Hence, why should war on individuals be greater than against nations?

In other words, which privilege and ownership of the raw materials of the earth does one nation have over others? Who established the occupancy law, especially that they have attained it by force of bayonets and swords? Why should one nation exploit another if this is unjust for every individual?

In a word, as it is just to annul private property, so it is just for all nations, for only then will there be peace on earth. Consider this: if possession and the law of inheritance do not impart ownership rights to the individual, why should it be imparted to a whole nation? Also, as there should be just division among the members of a nation, so there should be just and equal division internationally in raw materials, means of production and the accumulated property of all nations.

There should be no differences between black and white, civilized and primitive, just as among individuals of the same nation. There must be no discrimination among individuals, a nation, or all the nations of the world. As long as there are differences, war will not end.

Today 19th Sivan, 5769 – “Little Mitzvos”

 

Today 19th Sivan, 5769 – “Little Mitzvos”

Little Mitzvos Org

You may think, how does one little Mitzvo help . . .

Our times are calling out to us to do Teshuva, but it’s too hard for us to change our lives. Even when we try, we end up reverting back to nothing, everything as was. We MUST show HaShem that we are seeing the signs and that it means something to us.

In this way, when HaShem asks what did we did, we can reply “I took this on…”

You must not consider this “Little Mitzvos” as a replacement for the Shulchan Oruch – you must continue learning Halochos via mainstream Seforim and with Shiurim.

THE PURPOSE OF LIFE – Free will

Man is unique in his greatness. When a person does like this with his hands, a movement like this takes place in all the worlds! And when he does like that with his hands, a movement like that takes place in all the worlds!

If you could turn a person inside out, you would see that thousands upon thousands of worlds depend on every single sinew of his body.

Azamra means “I will sing” (Psalms 146:2)

“And the way to sing the song of joy is by seeking the good in all people, especially in ourselves. Each good point is one more note in the song of life!”

From our Sages on the Parshah
Parshah: When your raise the lamps… (Numbers 8:2)

When a person builds a house, he makes the windows narrow on the outside and wider on the inside, so that the light from the outside should optimally illuminate the interior. But when King Solomon built the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, he made the windows narrow within and wide without, so that its light should emanate to the outside and illuminate the world.

(Midrash Rabbah)

Perek Shira

Perek Shira: The Heavens – Are You On a Pedestal?

Did you ever ask yourself why Hashem made someone rich if he is such a crook? Or why Hashem wasted such an enormous amount of brains on someone so arrogant? Or why he gave such wonderful children to such a miserable father?

Keep in mind that if Hashem has blessed you in a way that makes you the envy of people around you must behave like you are on a pedestal because you are. You are an example of Hashem’s handiwork and you should reflect his greatness and justify his decision to endow you with these gifts. Just like the great Heavens sing “Hashayim misaprim kvod Kel” the Heaven that Hashem made so high and great sing are a testament to Hashem’s greatness and you should also be.
