No Evidence Of Daas Torah

ג' בטבת תש"ע
Grael 5

A scathing spot-on observation by Yerachmiel Lopin concerning the leaders tainted by association with the Leib Tropper scandal on Emes Ve-Emunah:

You are focusing too much on Tropper because he was caught with his pants down. More important is that he was able to manipulate, bribe, flatter, and intimidate rabbonim who are dayanim and poskim.

R. Moshe was fearless and uncorruptible. But we seem to have a generation of pygmies.

Stop asking even if they knew or did not know about this or that detail. It makes no difference. An inspector general can also be fired even if he was diligent and honest if he cant discern what half the world knew.

We need proof to figure out who was clueless, who was corrupt, and who was intimidated. We don't need proof to know that a whole group of leaders showed that they are not up to the job of being leaders. There was no evidence of daas, let alone daas torah.

That certainly strikes at the heart of the matter.
