Is everyone in the Torah society supposed to operate independently and be left to their own conclusions? Is the Torah society individualistic such that everyone is their own island? Is the Torah society an anarchist society? We discuss leadership in the Torah, personality types and the inclination to lead vs follow, and the culture of guiding one another in the Torah society.

[Aleksandr Sigalov:] A few points my friend does not make... First point is that we are supposed to listen ONLY to LEVITES and JUDGES APPOINTED BY LEVITES, and ONLY if they follow Written Torah. If a Levite or a Judge preaches something else than Written Torah, you are not to obey such individual. See this page for exact quotes and more information.
The other point is that we are still responsible for our own soul as Deuteronomy 4:9 states. This means that we are NOT to follow our leaders BLINDLY!!! This is what Nazis did. We are always required to be vigilant and careful with the Written Torah and we should reprove and correct our fellow brothers and leaders shall they be mistaken in the Law.
