I don't understand why everyone else has to tell people whether to indulge or not. However terrible it might be, it's their own business and they should be working on themselves and their taavos, just like we should all be working on ourselves and not others.

People need to be aware of what’s going on these days to know what to prepare their children. The older generation doesn’t have a clue of what teenagers are upto these days.....

Ugh. Why are we conflating inappropriate Purim parties with wealthy people and fancy cars. Like I said, the title of the post destroyed the main issue.

Can we decide what exactly the beef is here.

The article itself directly targets Rabbis. They are the problem according to him..

And there are no Rabbis are willing to stand up to them?
Why would they be taking a public stand against something they are doing in their house?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

It's one thing to indulge oneself in flying F, Pesach programs, etc. It's another thing when the main purpose of the party is to show off just how awsome you are.... And especially when it's affecting the "ruach" of a community.

I haven't seen the ruach of the community affected by someone bringing in MBD for a purim party.

And at those the inappropriate aspects can be much more intentional.

I do not think you are correct here.

Yeah. The whole thing doesn't seem to bother me that much. And it's not because I'm not a zealot lol.

It would be fun if you could finagle about why the whole issue of wealthy people creating wild parties doesn't bother you much considering your own admission of zealotry.
