Yehuda Ashlag Quotes

In a purely communistic regime, where the worker knows that he will not be given more if he works more, or less if he works less, and all the more so in light of the absolute motto, “Each will work according to his skills and receive according to his needs,” the worker will neither be rewarded for his diligence, nor fear his own negligence. Thus, he would have no fuel to motivate him to work. The labor productivity of the workers would then drop to nil, until they finally ruin the entire regime…. compulsive communist government is completely impracticable, since a bayonet-dependent government has no right to exist, and the majority will ultimately rise against it and abolish it. The idealist ten percent will never be able to rule over the egoistic ninety percent and the anti-communists.

Rabbi Ashlag lived in the Holy Land from 1922 until his death in 1954 (except for two years in England). In addition to his Sulam commentary on the Zohar, his other primary work, Talmud Eser Sefirot is regarded as the central textbook for students of Kabbalah. Ashlag systematically interpreted the wisdom and promoted its wide dissemination. In line with his directives, many contemporary adherents of Ashlag’s teachings strive to spread Kabbalah to the masses.
