Machlokes really is stupid

Written by d fine

Just a short one. The 250 followers of Korach were pulled into this argument/rebellion, and they all offered their ketores despite the fact that they all knew that only one of them would be chosen – the rest were destined to perish. Each person genuinely thought that they would be the one to come out tops – above even Aharon HaKohen – to the extent that they were willing to put their life on the line for this judgment call. And we know what happened – ultimately they all perished and Aharon came out on top. We see from here the danger of machlokes; once dispute begins, all logic goes out the window in the quest for self-vindication and glory. Let’s try and keep our brain on top of things at all times.
