The pre-internet gedolim are helping us battle the yetzer harah

Sooner or later, all of the elder gedolim will be gone and we will be faced with a crisis, the crisis I speak of is the fact that most of the elder gedolim are from the times when gedolim still had secular educations and were interested in secular subjects. I was reading about Rav Yaakov recently and the book said that knowing science and mathematics helped him gain a better understanding of chazal, Torah and the world around him. I find it disheartening that Rabbis like this will soon all be gone, only to be replaced with the types who sign concert bans without looking at the kol koreh itself or not being interested in anything except for learning Torah 24/7.

But fear not my friends, the pre-churban, pre-war, pre-television, pre-crazy chumra making, pre-black hat madness, pre-tznius partol, pre-haredi riots, pre-tzedakah scam artist types may be embarking on their final journey to the bais din shel mallah – but we have not lost hope – for the previous generation of Pre-Internet Gedolim will be with us for many years to come.
