Here is a hint on why many people feel that orthodox judaism takes away individuality:
Lot's of them.
and when you take a look at Minister of Information Becher's video, duh he's following the orthodox dress code except for the black hat.
I personally had a bad experience with the orthodox dress code. On the first day of yeshiva high school while I was still in high school, I was sent home the first day of the year because although my dress shirt was blue, and a solid color, as the text of the dress code said, it wasn't the correct shade of blue for the rabbinical control freaks and I was not allowed to attend classes the first day because of that bull shit.
Here's three points where the deception comes in.
1) Becher's portrayal of diversity of practice inside orthodox judaism would be as if Osama bin Laden said that in a propaganda video that in his ideal society 'there is great diversity. a woman can choose to wear a black burka or a grey burka.' What Osama bin Laden wouldn't say in his propaganda video is that a woman who chooses not to wear a burka would get stoned or beheaded.
Similarly, Becher is utterly silent about what one risks if one does join the orthodox community and then decides that a particular religious stringincy is too much for him or her. The person who decides to chill out even a bit with the stringency stuff risks his/her marriage, family, and community. This is not diversity. This is fascism.
2) Secondly, Becher was portraying orthodox judaism as if everyone agrees with eachother in terms of belief. This is totally false. Mitnagdim disagreed with hasidim. The Ashkenaz disagreed with the Sephardic. Modern Orthodox disagreed with the Charedim. Chabad disagrees with everyone else regarding if the messiah came or not yet. etc. Orthodox Judaism is anything but a unified party platform.
3) Spiritual individuality is bull shit. Either you are able to live life your own way without being shunned by your family and your community, or you are not. And Minister of Information Becher is trying to sell not being individualistic as being individualistic.
Don't fall for it.
