The existence of different streams of Judaism causes friction but it has its advantages. On the indificual level, different people get different answers from different sources. On the communal level, no one can know, and know that they know, what is best for the long term survival of the Jewish people. It makes sense for the Jewish people to hedge their bets with several different approaches. Sure Rabbi Amar thinks I'm a "lost son" and I think the Haskalah passed him by, but so what. As long as he and his keep out of the affairs of me and mine, we'll all do just fine.
