Rav Miller talks a lot about socialism and how it's affecting America - very interesting stuff.
Plus, he makes a point I'd never considered: The other religions of the world have been so willing to swallow all sorts of bizarre ideas and customs - what's the big deal about accepting Torah?
"They didn't live by the strict ideas, the strict precepts of the mind. They lived with a hodge-podge of emotions and arbitrary ideas, different gods for different situations; there wasn’t much seichel there, and I’m being gracious when I say that."
Na'aseh v'nishma is a challenge to independent thinkers, but at the same time, the Torah way is also exactly what an independent thinker needs.
Likewise, history shows that people attracted to authentic Torah are often those who think outside the box. (Or, as Rabbi Wallerstein puts it, those "who color outside the lines.")
And then Rav Miller delves into the mystery of how the same people who crossed the Yam Suf and experienced Ma'amad Har Sinai and the leadership of Moshe Rabbeinu could suddenly start frolicking around an idol of shiny gold veal.
Very compelling stuff.
So what's the main nugget here?
"Anochi Hashem Elokecha, 'I am Hashem your model,' is the command of the Torah; not only that you should know that I am Hashem your G-d, but you should know what I think, and think along with Me.
"That was what Kabolas HaTorah really meant. We give up our own thoughts, our baby thoughts, and we rise to the thoughts of the Supreme Intelligence and think His thoughts. And those are the attitudes and ideals we adopt as our own."
Definitely worth a read.
