Have you ever found yourself submitting to emotional blackmail? Have you ever felt that to love God means being docile towards domineering people? Have you ever felt that the main reason to try and gain wealth is to give it away? Well, if so, you REALLY need a rabbi! Specifically me, the host of the Rabbi Daniel Lapin Show because these and other wrong beliefs are becoming more and more accepted. We start with a young woman being pressured by a man and then explore a famous “ethicist” (a profession I have less regard for than I do for barnacle scrapers of the Swiss navy) proclaiming how rich people are immoral. Who does have a right to your money? This show tries to show you how the world REALLY works, as you know. In other words, we want you to gain a coherent world view. But the right word is Weltanschauung. What does that mean? 

Weltanschauung’ is, I am afraid, a specifically German notion, which it would be difficult to translate into a foreign language. If I attempt to give you a definition of the word, it can hardly fail to strike you as inept. By Weltanschauung, then, I mean an intellectual construction which gives a unified solution of all the problems of our existence in virtue of a comprehensive hypothesis, a construction, therefore, in which no question is left open and in which everything in which we are interested finds a place. It is easy to see that the possession of such a Weltanschauung is one of the ideal wishes of mankind. When one believes in such a thing, one feels secure in life, one knows what one ought to strive after, and how one ought to organise one’s emotions and interests to the best purpose. (Sigmund Freud 35th lecture on psychoanalysis)
