    It seems that a large part of Judaism is explaining Judaism to others. Some people have trouble understanding that their perspective is a centrist one but that others exist which don't have their focus at the center.

    Here are some social-media instances which might help point that out:

    www.gregcal.com
    https://www.tiktok.com/@spacevinci/v...50739803688235

    I saw the tik tok through Log into Facebook
    but that facebook identity has a lot of other stuff

    Did you notice the snippet at the bottom of gregcal saying it's satire?

    And I only made it through about a minute on the tiktok. I have no clue what the point of that one is.

    It is satire but that's the point. And the video is much the same thing -- it is pointing out the flaw in confusing a personal perspective with a universal perspective.

    I had to fight hard not to crack up at this one. Unfortunately I started reading it during class...
