We are just humans, we have the selective memory. When you see a Jew dressed in a Chassidic garb you might mistakenly think that this is the tradition, etc. In fact 99% of the time this Jew's father or grandfather never dressed like that. But then it was the twentieth century, the century of the collective post traumatic amnesia. As far as the Jewish religion is concerned just a repressed memory. There was no industrialization, no communism, no Freud, no Marx, no Trotsky, no Einstein, no Holocaust and no Gulag, astonishingly not even members of own family, for many not even the state of Israel. The Jewish religion today is a collective rewind, pretending that we can safely ignore the preceding [and the current] centuries and instead reenact "remembrance" of the pyramids. Could you pass the salt please?
