Comment to a shiur: I would say the question of HKBH’s will should not only be asked when there’s an ethical dilemma but at every point. Of course, even if you ask the question there’s the issue a blind-spots and confusing your will with HKBH’s, but that can be dealt with separately. Especially with our host society it seems that often times HKBH’s will is confused with local standards. Thoughts?

I know it’s not a perfect analogy but if the explanation for Rabbi’s staying in galut is the captain of the ship, being the last one off (I’ve heard this in the name of R’YBS), then shouldn’t the captain exert maximum effort to get everyone into the lifeboats?
