Why do Lubavitchers feel superior? - A Moment with Rabbi Avigdor Miller Zt"l #415
Parshas Ki Sisa 5778

QUESTION:

Why do Lubavitcher chassidim consider themselves superior to Litvishe Jews?

ANSWER:
First of all, Lubavitcher chassidim are mostly Litvishe Jews, you have to know. They are Litvishe Jews. And if they consider themselves superior, so we can ask the question, why do most non-Lubavitcher chassidim consider themselves superior to Lubavitcher chassidim? Or why do Breslover chassidim consider themselves superior to Lubavitcher chassidim? And why do Satmar chassidim consider themselves superior to Breslover chassidim?

The answer is, all idealists who follow certain systems, do it because they think it's the best system, otherwise they would follow a different system. It's common sense. Why should a man be a Lubavitcher if he thinks something is better? Why shouldn't a man be a non-Lubavitcher, if he thinks it's better than Lubavitch?

All idealists follow the system that they think is the best. Now who is going to be the arbitrator on who is the best? Moshiach will come, and in order to keep peace with everybody he will say you are all the best! And the truth is, they are all the best, but right now it's not the question if the Lubavitcher feels superior. Ask a Litvishe Yeshiva bachur, he feels superior! Ask a Satmar, he feels superior! And go into a Sephardic Yeshiva in Eretz Yisroel, in Porat Yosef, he's superior! So everybody is superior!

And the answer is that's how idealists have to be. No idealist will do something that he thinks is inferior.
