A judge that gives down a ruling and the majority disagree... but the fact is, the masses are being misled. This extreme isolationism and the myriad of added chumros merely point to an empty belief system.

I keep hearing "there's no such thing as being too strict on pesach" oh yes there is, it led to a revulsion of judaism on my part and a long journey back complete with the fact that I will not go to my parents for the seder nor eat any shabbat or chag meal by them.

Extremists breed extreme opposition, I was not allowed to bring non jewish books in the house, this led me to hundreds of hours in the public library reading all types of garbage including Howard Stern's book.

True I would have not been as diverse and open minded had I not been forced to forge my own path.. but still
I don't agree. I think that any religion, regimen, etc., allows people with certain mental illnesses to hide their illness behind religion. You can use taharos to mask OCD, kibud at v'aim to mask narcissistic disorders, etc.
There isn't a good answer to the problem. To some extent you have to daven for the right rebbeim, teachers and mentors.

Returning to the issue at hand. Of course people who want to control people can use chumros as a way of controlling people. But it doesn't follow that all chumros therefore are meant to control people, or put down people. The fact that all murderers eat bread does not mean that bread causes murders. What you have to do is look at the other people eating bread that don't murder, and question your assumptions.

So how do you think you can tell the difference between the ones who use it to control and the ones who don't?

Sometimes, you can tell (not always) by whether they can be intellectually honest.
For example, my father did not want to buy soda for pesach because it was too expensive. But instead of saying that, he made it into a chumro. However,we all saw through it since he allowed buying other items and it wasn't across the board.

Or do you not feed them to your kids claiming that they're too expensive?

That doesn't sound like a power grab but rather an excuse.

The better way to tell is by whether they keep to it themselves or try to impose it on others. With schools it can be a little more vague since they possibly could have some standard but it should be a standard standard and not chumros.

Why does Binah magazine not have pictures of women?
