“And you shall be mad at the sight of your eyes which you shall see.” (28:34)

In today’s society, when the world is filled with so much distortion of the truth, and overwhelmed with deceit and hypocrisy, it is indeed viritually impossible for people to see the truth. There are, however, individuals who, because they maintaining a Torah true observance, have access to a clear perspective of what society should be. Their clarity of vision is nonetheless denounced, their message is distorted and treated as the ramblings of madmen. This can be the interpretation of the above posuk. Those who, because of their ability to see, have chosen not to follow the decadent course taken by society, are ridiculed and scorned. This curse has unfortunately seen fruition in contemporary times, when the great Torah “seers” are so often scorned and derided.
