Tishby makes a convincing case for this

None of my “favorites” have much to say about any of these figures.

Here is a look at the table of contents of Tishby’s Luzzatto book

You can read a free preview of that Perl satire of Hasidism here.

Perl was on the side of Mendelssohn, the Enlightenment, known as the Maskilim or Haskala. These three groups, the mitnaggedim, hasidim, and maskilim, warred against each other. Sometimes they joined sides to fight the other one, such as the case of the mitnaggedim and hasidim fighting against the maskilim. What ultimately happened is the mitnaggedim died out, hence you probably never heard of the Gaon of Vilna. The maskilim also died out in the 19th century- Perl’s satires had the unintended effect of multiplying the hasidim. And this isn’t so easy to understand- because by the mid to late 20th century the forces of the maskilim prevailed. And as Scholem has shown, the Sabbatean heresy preceded all three of these movements. Contemporary yids tend to be a result of the victory of the forces of Sabbateanism and the maskilim. And that is not to say that they have not retained certain features of the hasidim, particularly, for our purposes, its instincts regarding the kelipot. In other words, while they are the products of the Jewish Enlightenment, and while their earlier moshiach succeeded in “voiding the Torah”, their old “theory of evil” has remained untouched.

I emphasize again that none of my “favorites” (Choinski, Shamir, Bjerknes, shekina.mybb, E. Michael Jones, let alone Evola, Pound, or any of the so-called alt-right adjacent morons like MacDonald, etc.) have much to say at all about Nathan, Luzzatto, the Gaon, the Besht, or Nachman, among others. By that I mean to say that the goyim are total, clinical, literal retards who don’t know what they’re doing, and I am diagnosing them here and now in a medical sense.

At least on occasion some of them do discuss the founder of Chabad, so that’s a start.

Here is a heeb article by Elior on Tishby’s interpretation of Hasidism

In [Zalman’s] address to the public, which is reflected in the Tanya, Rashaz saw a need to lecture his ideas in a moderate and qualified manner, while the depth of the inwardness of the Chabad doctrine is more evident in his sermon books, ‘Torah Or’ and ‘Likutei Torah’.

Hodos, who is supposed to be the expert on Chabad, I’ve never seen mention these last two texts.

You should wear a helmet around so you don’t bump your head, you should wear a bib so your drool doesn’t stain your shirt- that’s where the goyim are.

This foremost disciple and adversary of Scholem’s agrees with Weiss that Hasidism was split between Chabadniks and Bratslavers

Tishby presented the conceptual system that was formed in Hasidism versus its Kabbalistic foundations in a detailed and clarified manner. He systematically analyzed the range of concepts that make up the work of the God of Hasidism

This is “their” previous God – you might prefer to think of it as their previous egregore. What’s obvious about the “egregorial matrix-control” (as they call it at shekina.mybb) of today is that it is Sabbatean. What isn’t so visible is the nature of the Hasidism that immediately preceded it. To understand that, what seems most useful are the writings of the yids themselves who disagreed with Hasidism, i.e. the mitnaggedim and maskilim. These two are the yid forms of “trads and progs” respectively. So Hasidism was attacked from both sides before it ultimately prevailed- and I surmise that they are the prime candidates for showing us the ugly secrets of Hasidism.

Interestingly, there is a mise en abyme in Perl’s satire

He wrote this anonymously. In Revealer of Secrets this anonymous book of his appears as the key plot device. If that’s confusing- in his fictional satire the rabbis seek to destroy a nonfictional book of his. He wasn’t allowed to publish the nonfiction so he wrote this satire which he garbed as a non-satirical Hasidic text. You can see this as a symptom of their zeitgeist in the first decades of the 19th century. And by the time of the Bolshevik Revolution and the dissolution of the Pale of Settlement in the 20th century, Hasidism was still the norm.

I know of ZERO monographs on the Besht written by people on the far-right. Smelly farmboys who are new to literacy it DOES appear.

Just from the outset with Perl (who initiated the genre the hilarious Franzos wrote in) you can see the critique of the dynamics of the “kagal” and its minions

Those principles [of Hasidism] are, first, blind faith in and loyalty to the tsadek, and second, communion with God. And the former is far more important than the latter… In reality, says Perl, it is only blind faith in the tsadek that is essential among the hasidim, since communion with God is the prerogative of the tsadikim.

I’ve discussed the role of the tzadiqim before – this is one of the main ways Hasidism was influenced by Sabbateanism. The leader of the community IS the moshiach. Only HE knows God’s ways, and he exists outside of conventional morality.

This is indeed how ZOG and the zogglings operate

the tsadek, who is the “foundation of the universe.” He is omnipotent and God-like — indeed, even greater than God, teaching God how to act and nullifying or tempering Divine Judgments.

Perl of course was laughing at this. He spent his youth as one of the Hasidim himself.

IS it just pure Sabbateanism?

You’d never know if you read only the famous Holocaust Saint Elie Wiesel on Hasidism. His and Buber’s romanticizing accounts are the only things people in the west know about this 250 year religious movement. Though already on the first page of Wiesel’s chapter on the Besht we see this “innocent” line

God listened. And had to recognize the validity of Satan’s arguments: Lo ikhshar dara

[the generation wasn’t ready]

Here is another rare admission regarding the true nature of tikkun

Do not be fooled, their mission is to de-spark you. And looking around, they have.

Oooh this Perl is good so far.
