Torah learning is simply too weak

All defects in the conduct and governance of Jewish society are the result of defects in the Torah learning of their rabbinic leadership. 
Present day Torah learning is simply too weak. Had Jewish Torah leadership developed better Torah scholarship the Jewish people throughout their history would have achieved a more robust and satisfactory condition. 
If divine Providence accounts for all that happens to the Jewish people, and if rabbinic authority must be received uncritically, then rabbinic failure has to account for all the people's deficits.
