I wish academics like Idel would be more Dionysian
Both he and Scholem at least admit that kabbalah cannot be contained academically. Apollonians are at least a couple removes from “source-thinking” in being overly structured and inherently comported toward the demos. Good citizens are non-Promethean. Keter involves experiencing and speaking either as or against the Kagal. Whether they worthily represent the divine or not they determine the divine for the public so it amounts to the same thing. Kabbalah academics almost always frame concepts theologically rather than politically, and there is another meaning to the “annihilation” Idel associates with Keter-thinking, namely ostracism as a consequence of (publicly) speaking as/against the Kagal.
Anyway I think it’s necessary to abandon my own pet discipline in order to understand “them”
What makes challenging them more or less futile is that virtually all of their minions agree with their general lenience. Here is a gematria way of explaining it
Whether they’re jungle baboons “being themselves”, shitlibs pretending to be reactionaries in order to be smiled upon by society, future failmom dumpstersluts, cowardly conformist establishmentarians, or conniving totalitarian jews themselves, they all want mercy. Thus they’re standard kabbalists in seeing the left-side sephiroth as evil and only existing to be synthesized (annihilated or concealed) by the opposite, merciful sephiroth. You don’t often see philosophy talking in terms of divine attributes. It’s a matter of how one defines God’s nature so needless to say it isn’t a settled debate, though all the wretched ones who demand unconditional mercy want to pretend it’s settled.
This I take to be a clear bias
Bjerknes speaks of the “Aryan Age” as having ended, I’d say about two centuries ago. Slezkine thus gets at a partial truth to call it the “Jewish Century”. After taking control of the western economy now there will be mercy for being judged as a kike, and generally behaving as a subhuman. What that student of Scholem, Elior, describing Sabbatean moral-lessness, called the Age of Grace. Nice euphemism for letting evil and vulgarity run rampant. One needn’t request judgment purely, only moderation between mercy and judgment, and that is too much to ask of the ugly collective of gremlins. In the spirit of using their system against them, Keter technically precedes both pillars of mercy and judgment. So what is required by our culture in order to heal from the excessive mercy which has lapsed into immoralism-as-Keter is annihilation in the Source which would result in a reconsideration of the merits of mercy and judgment, and how they relate to each other.
