the second-to-last 'is' should be 'if' ..

Peretz Segal

I completely disagree with the authors contention that R Yisroel saw the dull forces as not affecting our behaviour. on the contrary, R Yisroel didn't use mussar to bring out the dull forces but rather to restrain them! see Michtav 6 "and (these dull forces) have the power to rule over man". It seems as if the author has completely missed the point of what R Yisroel did with his method of mussar. Even a brief perusal of Etz Pri will make this obvious. I agree that comparisons are odious but perhaps the author should take another good look at R Yisroel himself and forget about Satre.
