ZC: Right there's your problem.
You are not accepting reality. Not the reality that people are lazy, or the reality that the Orthodox tradition is actually a fairly successful model for an extremely limited sized group.
Rather, Orthodox Judaism has extreme scaling problems. Scaling problems are the same sorts of problems the ObamaCare people are whining about right now.
For example, the Sabbath of the Land. This is always deeply unworkable except as practiced by a "sub-set" of the people. This is why it continually gets rejected once it is scaled up. It has the same error as HMO's that depend on being applied to a minority; and when the majority tries to implement the rule, whole sets of negative consequences are revealed .
However, the Sabbath of the Land is an absolute and necessary practice. Neglecting it leads to depletion and dissipation of the soil, eventually to the creation of barren dead dustbowl conditions.
How to square this circle? Rotation. This is what every US farmer knows. Crop rotation plus fallow years. If you ask Priests to choose who will stand fallow each year, you get the results of any bureaucracy, corruption and mismanagement. However, individuals guided by conscience and economics would coordinate this cycle without intervention through the market mechanism.
Orthodox Judaism depends on the Shabbos Goy, the rule breaker that allows the Jew to keep his rules. This is wrong on so many levels. Judaism going forward must be able to sustain all humans so that God's promise to Abraham can finally be realized.
Orthodox Judaism failed the vast majority of Jews in the 1800's and 1900's. The problems aren't corrected in any variant of modern Orthodox Judaism, so you get "more of the same." Reform Judaism went off of its own rails because of its unwillingness and inability to see the path forward once they stepped off of the glorious path of established Rabbinic Judaism that came before it. Yet even this has been provided for us, the Oral Torah..needs to be revisited.
The argument against this is just the same as that that restrains Americans from doing a new "Constitutional Convention." Why? Because, today politicians are just no match in our eyes for the people who wrote the original and we fear the outcome of letting the silly people who have borrowed 16 Trillion dollars in the name of our children to rewrite that last mooring post to sanity.
Yet, with the Oral Torah, this is what we must do. It isn't easy. But, it hasn't been for any previous generation so far, either.
