Addictions provide an escape from the pain of a meaningless and lonely existence. They are an expression of the desperate attempt to fill the holes in our souls, to provide the two most essential human needs: for love and meaning.
1) Loving intimacy. If there is no trustworthy other to love, the longing is misdirected into "intimacy" with some addictive substance.
2) Meaning: The fear of annihilation haunts us from the moment we become aware of how vulnerable and fragile we are. And if we forget for a few minutes, some terror attack or critical relative is sure to remind us.
Without a relationship with a Higher Power, we feel totally insignificant, powerless and alone. Without G-d, we cannot bear our existential nothingness. Instead, we try to escape from the meaningless of our existence with addictions which provide an illusion of power and self-importance.

Argentine media has reported President Mauricio Macri will commit to the transfer of archives to Israel documenting ties between Argentina and the Nazi regime during World War II, and especially in the years following, when the regime of Juan Domingo Perón assisted Nazi officials who fled to Buenos Aires to seek refuge.
Macri is expected to anounce the transfer to Netanyahu during his visit to the country. The reports quoted a local source who claimed that there was documentation of the ties between the government of Argentina and Germany and that the information that would be transferred to Israel would be "of great value to the Jewish people."
