Judaism and afterlife
traditional Judaism does have an afterlife, but it's not what people typically think of. there's a purgatory, Gehenom, which is often inaccurately translated as Hell. you spend at most a year there, and then the vast majority of souls go on to Gan Eden (heaven/the Garden of Eden). those who aren't able to be purified, the truly wicked, the Jared Kushners of the world for example, just get annihilated.
antisemitism often comes veiled as something else, especially on the left
e.g. a Jew mocks the white genocide conspiracy theory, which directly implicates themselves and is used to target them for violence and harassment. the left-wing antisemite's response ignores the Jewishness of the person and the risk to physical safety that comes with a Jew making jokes about white genocide.

like, hmm, maybe when everyone lied to me about how big important things like gender and sexuality and the economy and war and peoples' brains worked my whole life, the idea that the truth is something we somehow lost the ability to discern in 2016 because Russia is kinda
*gasp* the media and people in power could... lie to us? wow i can't imagine what that feels like
@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
