When the Rebbe told people to tell their doctors that they are taking the wrong medicine and that's why they aren't getting better, is that tevah or lema'alah min hatevah?
You tell me.

No. I'm saying I have no idea what his guidance would be.
Even within teva? Or specifically because of the lmaale min hateva?

Dead bodies and long term complications. A tzaddik sees things that regular people can't see and can take it upon himself to advise people to do things in a manner that is lema'alah miderech hatevah. That doesn't mean that you should take it upon yourself lechatchilah to go against tevah without that guidance. We can't just make up the rules for ourselves as we go along.
So you're saying you're sure of what his guidance would've been al pi tevah? Just there may have been  lema'alah miderech hatevah factors that would've changed the guidance?

I don't see how anyone can begin to guess what the Rebbe would say here.
Why are you convinced so many are wrong if you can entertain the notion of the Rebbe not going with medical advice necessarily?

I don't understand the premise of this question.

Seriously, I have no clue. I'm inclined to say no, but there were plenty of times when people ignored the Rebbe's begging and pleading regarding different things. People will be moser nefesh and go to the ends of the earth to help a fellow Yid, but at the same time struggle with day to day ahavas yisroel that requires slight behavioral changes.
The question wasn't what he would've said. More, if he gave the same guidance, would he be listened to?
You were saying that people not listening isn't lack of leadership. I was wondering if that's true.
I have zero knowledge of the CH situation, just questioning the general statement that people not listening is not a lack of leadership.

How can you lead a community that refuses to be lead? IOW, the issue is not leadership, it's followship. And I believe that stretches far beyond CH. People think if the Rabonim would only issue clear directives, everyone would follow. This has proved wrong time and time again, even unrelated to Covid. How many people are active on this very forum belong to communities in which internet is verbotten?

I know this is stretching way beyond the scope of this thread, but it is DDF after all.
In your opinion, if the Rebbe were alive, would there be the same issue?
