While most the world is going bankrupt, the rich and powerful convene in the picturesque city of Davos to discuss their ongoing success in exploiting the rest of society, as if there is nothing wrong with the 1% getting 82% of all the wealth that was created in the world last year.
Sure, they talk about a “synchronization” of economies, and marching together towards a “shared future.” But what lies behind these words is the same exploitative thinking: How can we, the tycoons, take advantage of the situation to get even richer than we are now.
But as much as the rich and powerful would like to stay isolated, they’re being pushed to discover how interdependent we all are. The world has become a globally hyper-connected village, even though we continue to think linearly and egoistically.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining to anyone. In my view, this is the inevitable result of our natural egoistic development as human beings. Soon, however, we will have to acknowledge that the name of the game is interdependence, and the only way to prevent a crisis and make the world work for everyone is to change ourselves.
Economics is merely a reflection of human relations, and we will have to undergo a change of consciousness in how we relate to each other. Human society will have to embark on a massive socio-educational journey to upgrade our way of thinking and our sensibility towards our collective happiness. When we’re ready to start, the authentic wisdom of Kabbalah can show us how to get on this track.
