The Root of the Problem

Education, Crime & Criminal Justice, Lubavitcher Rebbe
The Root of the Problem
Disc 142, Program 567

Event Date: 12 Tammuz 5741 - July 14, 1981

When one looks at the world today, one sees increasing crime as well as unprecedented friction between various segments in society.

Each day brings a renewed need for increased security and police protection, and the situation seems to be spinning completely out of control.

Instead of seeking all sorts of convoluted solutions, it is time for society and its lawmakers to simply re-examine the education we are providing to our children.

The worship of false ideology, the teaching of false acceptance, the pressure to accept the beliefs of a minorities How the Rebbe saw this coming and has explained this in a clear cohesive manner. What a blessing for us all that these teachings are recorded.

Yet, what has been done to prevent this from: a personal, family, education, employment or governmental level?

More money to promote false ideology, whilst people suffer from hunger.

More money to promote false ideology, whilst more people become homeless.

More money to promote false ideology, whilst access to healthcare decreases.

More money to promote false ideologies in education, whilst from kindergarten age there is an increased prevalence in mental health issues.

Why do we all appear afraid to speak up and speak out? Answer; This is now a criminal offense! Reply

Increasing Crime and rhe separation of church and state Parents were once lazy perhaps and wanted the Creator of the World taught in schools so that they, the parents, might be relieved of much of this teaching, this practice. Now if it is not taught in schools, it is up to us to teach our children. To light the candles and recite Kiddush and observe Shabbat; and not Shabbat only. What are the observances of every holiday; for that matter every day. Should we teach our children ourselves instead of leaving it to teachers? Shall we observe and practice in our homes. Shall we live it so children learn. If it is no longer the duty of teachers and part of the school curriculum, isn't it up to parents to teach? Reply

We need to balance home and village. We need to ensure our children are good citizens and also we parents are good role models. The challenge lies in whether we are cognizant enough to realize we alone are not experts and must always observe and be curious and not be scared to ask questions and listen. We have to remember we are not perfect. Good intentions always. Reply
