i ran into a friend from shul & he had 2 of his grandbabies w/ him, he says they’ve been making up new lyrics to christmas carols so they can sing along next year at their goyishe schools. example, to the tune of ‘joy to the world’ : “DON’T EAT YOUR POOP, IT TASTES REAL BAD”

antisemitism often comes veiled as something else, especially on the left

the whole "libertarian" psychedelic bro culture is at the center of the counterrevolutionary faux-anti-authoritarian crowd and bernie should keep his distance. Much of this crowd ia just misguided and should be brought further left, but endorsing their celebrity propagandists isn't helpful.

@kittybecca As with so many things, it depends. I don't think the intention of Rambam and the codifiers was ever to replace or do away with Talmudic dialectics. And even tho they write in an apodictic genre, where decisions come down like decrees, there's an argument to be made that they simply meant the codes as a continuation of that dialectic, that Rambam only ever considered the Mishneh Torah just that, a repetition of already established torah, and wanted people to treat it as secondary
