    Identity Administration?? I don't know about you guys, but I'm scared to death. The push for cookie-cutter identity continues, sweeping away every sign of difference. There is only one way to be a Zionist (the right-wign-Im Tirzu narrative). There is only one way to be a Jew (Orthodox). There is only one proper Jewish identity (even if that includes ideas that are anathema to Biblical values). Higher education threatened (why does anybody really need to think - all the answers are already there in our cokie-cutter identity. What a time-and-effort-saver!) There is only one way to be, and woe to you if you are different. Lockstep thinking marches on with lockstep identity. Worse yet, we seem to be losing the will to resist. This is a recipe for national disaster - and it will be our own doing. We won't be able to blame anybody else.
