The Loyalty Phenomenon
Q. We can see in every situation of power struggles and position, like the elections, etc. - it strengthens the hatred and controversy and then intensifies the phenomenon of loyalty, Hashem protect us and save us...
A. Yes, you're right - this loyalty, it's simply not Jews. A Jew can't give over to another Jew, it's impossible to believe that such a thing can be. It's one of the worst sins. And here they are doing it 'from left and from right' - without any problem. As if in agreement with the rabbis. But, it's one of the worst sins, most severe. And these have to be - have to be - 'Erev Rav' without a doubt.
Q. In this generation, when there are so many books and lessons on the laws of guarding speech, etc., what not, and davka like today there is so much of this phenomenon...
A. The lessons on guarding speech, it's a very good beginning, but it continues with a direction that is not at all according to the true purpose. They're not differentiating between lashon hara and giving rebuke that must be said. They have no strength, they don't want to hear rebuke, so they're saying: 'Oy, oy, oy! Lashon hara! ' They don't want to hear. It's a confusion of our times.
To be continued iy"H...

Please see, in addition to this, The Loyalty Phenomenon Indeed, which I believe is addressing the same issue.
