Modern or Centrist Orthodoxy has a crisis to address
Today's secular culture and society is OTD! I thought the culture of the 50's 70's and 80's were highly compatible with core Torah values. The late sixties were an "aberration"
Today's culture is SO antithetical to Torah there seems to remain a black-and-white choice [Hobson's Choice?]
1. A Shift Right to Chareidi Insularism
2. A shift Left to Neo-Conservatism
And a vacuum gap in between.
I don't think the NY Times has been compatible with any Traditional values for 80+ years. I just heard stories about their glowing praises of Stalin YSv"Z during the Show Trial era. We know of their scurrilous record during the Holocaust.
I think Bill Buckley had the NYT correctly pegged by the 1960's.
