LU, then you are addressing a question I directed to Joseph that you either don’t understand his question or my answer. He stated, among other things, that what we call Chareidism was the default form of Judaism. H e also said hat it goes back to Har Sinai

I simply pointed out that he did not take either Chassidus or Sephardim into account.

With regard to his Har Sinai claim, Rabbinic Judaism is only roughly 2,000 years old. It bears little resemblance to what went before and has evolved dramatically since. Just look at our Machzorim, for example. The authors of the peyutim were born between 700 and 1100 A.D., so they were obviously not part of our davening before 700.
