Regarding blaming BT’s for being the more likely ones to do mesirah (here): I find that ludicrous because my experience has been that most BT’s are the biggest cult followers of the establishment. For various psychological reasons, most of the BT’s want so much to fit in that they will do everything they can to ingratiate themselves to the establishment. Most of the BT’s I have known want very much to believe their fantasies and dreams that these FFB ‘leaders’ are holy people, extensions of the Rebbe who can do no wrong, and will follow them unquestionably. It has always been a bewildering phenomena to watch people who in their previous lives were some of the most fervernt iconoclastic rebels now transformed into the staunchest conformists. It is as if they have lost all their critical thinking faculties. And I am saying this as a BT.
