One hasidic sect notably absent from the list on this warning is Chabad.  This was never a problem in Chabad.  The rabbi and his wife always put their “charity” dollars to good use and had the latest model smartphone and other tech gear.  Their spoiled brat kids did too.  I recall my children noticing their latest model iPhones, and asking why we couldn’t keep up with the ‘Chazirbergs.’  I had to explain that, unlike them, we work for our money and don’t get a free ride pretending to be spokesmen for God.

Some sects place a greater importance on controlling their subjects, and others place the importance on living off of them.
