Rav Kook

Does Rav Kook in his philosophy ever make any recommendations regarding how to make communal decisions or influence individual behavior? Does he ever provide any practical advice about responding to certain situations, or present guiding attitudes with which to direct one's life?

Or does he only provide a passive, intellectual/mystical framework within which the world's phenomena can be understood, but without practical applications?

If the second understanding is true, it would go a long way towards understanding why he has not had a capable, inspired successor.
