I read an internet obituary about Rebbeinu Yoel the Satmarer rebbe ZT''l. At his levaya a great Rabbi said that when Noah bought the Lion it's food late (in the Ark), the lion mauled him, injuring him. It is said that the lion was within it's rights to do so as he was the king of the beasts, but also the last of that kind of Lion. The rabbi went on to say that Der Yoilish was the last of the lions. This was true, hasidism is a constantly evolving movement, that had to reinvent itslef after the holocaust. The Rabbi's that rebuilt, are gone now, either passed away or incapable of leading through illness. The new generation lacks the post- traumatic zeal of their predecessors. Furthermore the large rebbishe sects are more wealthy and powerful then ever. Maybe the satmar rebbe's have a point that the sect is to big to follow one man. But obviously this hasn't been accepted by the Satmar masses.
