    Dear YWN,

    It seems like so much time and effort is spent these days trying to dictate to others what, where and how they should live their lives or conduct themselves. Does anyone think dictating to others actually works? Stop and think for a second, when was the last time someone dictated something to you and you changed your behavior based on what they said? On the flip side, you can probably more easily remember an incident, situation or behavior that you observed, were moved by and now choose to emulate.

    Bottom line: If you are really sincere in your desire to improve Klal Yisrael all you need to do is focus on yourself, others will follow. If your sincerity is based on some need to vent or create an uproar then that is all you will succeed at, creating an uproar.
