Dear Zakein Mamrei:
To outsiders, we members of the revolution appear tough - some might even say we are 'brutal' in our tactics. But at heart, we are simply sensitive poet-warriors. Our hearts are not made of steel. Why, then, do you abandon us?
Your extended absence from this forum can signal only one thing: that Rebbe, and Rebbe's army, were simply another 'stage' among the many gilgulim of your life.
We beg of you, Zakein Mamrei - prove us wrong!
I know that there has been some name calling and there has been some finger pointing...but the emes is that we need cool hard facts, no? Because otherwise are we not stooping to the level of those who denounce the different Rebbes and rat them out to jail? So Chevra, I will present exhibit A, NAMELY the second picture (I think the Chonester was numero Uno) of A Revival Kinder photographed with Rebbe. Does this not say it all? Those who wish to photograph their children with Rebbe fit one type while others who choose not to are another type. (Those who have their childrens birthday cake with Rebbes image get extra points) But you see, those who choose not to photograph with Rebbe, those are the "types" who have pictures of their children with such people as Captain Planet, Mickey Mouse, or Elizebeth Taylor. Is this what we want?
So the Score...
the YOGOhurt- 1
the corporate "man" from Fairlawn...well, I'll let YOU decide
"Selling out" refers to the compromising of one's integrity, morality and principles in exchange for money, 'success' (however defined) or other personal gain. It is commonly associated with attempts to increase mass appeal or acceptability to mainstream society. A person who does this, as opposed to continuing along his or her original path, is labelled a sellout and typically regarded with disgust and immediate loss of respect. Selling out is often seen as gaining success at the cost of credibility.
At a recent wedding, YOGOurt was spotted with a very neat, closely trimmed beard. Need I say more?
Better to burn out, than to fade away...
We all know the power of Rebbe's Niggun.
It has the power to open gates, shatter iron curtains, and to pierce the throught he darkness of our own souls.
But we did not - until erev Chanukah - know part of 3 of Rebbe's niggun.
We do now.
And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi: 'Ye have troubled me, to make me odious unto the inhabitants of the land, even unto the Canaanites and the Perizzites; and, I being few in number, they will gather themselves together against me and smite me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house.'
