We have to diagnose and treat the root cause of all human problems!

An article in The Jerusalem Post:

My comment:

Despite the “zoom in/zoom out” claim, the article completely misunderstands the root cause of the problem.

And as long as even Jews are missing the point — being the only people with the suitable and practical method of diagnosing our “human condition” and its remedy — the world is totally helpless, sleepwalking towards a seemingly inevitable global disaster.

The root cause of all human problems for millennia is the inherently and 100% self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric, exploitative, and hateful human nature.

It is the cancer-like human ego that drives all of us without any exception.

Anything and everything we ever built, invented, and developed is the product of the human ego. This is why even our greatest inventions are always used for infinite personal profit or as weapons against others — even medicine and food.

And while the so-called “Western society” seems more refined and progressive than other — even worse — societal models, the self-serving, egocentric, narcissistic, and exploitative Western culture is the pinnacle of our 100% egoistic and selfish existence.

As a result, we can see how the West is destructively and aimlessly consuming itself in our times.

There is no way out of this balagan except reviving and using the original Jewish method that can help us diagnose the cancerous ego in ourselves and treat and correct it until we become “truly Human beings,” existing and behaving above and against the original human nature.

This is our Jewish role in the world.
