This article does a good job of describing the psychology and sociological dynamics of a cult and what happens when a cult gets a state of its own. The writer's conclusion, though well-meaning, is misguided and misses the point she herself continually makes but is oblivious to. Because Judaism is a cult and always has been, it cannot transform. If it did, it will no longer be identifiable as Jewish. Without the cult there is no Judaism and Jewish people religious or not, recognise this. Cults are created out of psychological distress and a need to control. They are restrictive, controlling, paranoid, exclusivist, chauvinistic and by definition anti-democratic and oppose openness to other beliefs and ways of life. The Jewish cult exists only for the benefit of its own people and not for any other purpose. You cannot have both Jewishness and universal human values. Therefore it is one or the other and I made my choice a long time ago.
