I do not know if it is just the crowd that I currently run with, or perhaps the new world order has truly taken over, but it just seems like nobody (and I do mean nobody) ever looks at the big picture anymore. Where can you find anyone these days who has their own original thoughts and ideas? Where are the rugged individualists who have a sense of exactly what the right thing to do is, and then just go out there and do it?" » Blog Archive » Our Flawed Understanding of Parsha Chukas » Blog Archive » Our Flawed Understanding of Parsha Chukas: "Isaiah discusses how G-d will remove the support of the wise, teachers, prophets, elders, heroes and in their place making “youngsters their leaders, and mockers will rule them.
