comment Why do different people have different levels of mitzvah obligation?
Korach asked the same question... the answer is that there are different kinds of people. Since HKB"H made the Torah and its laws and He also made "natural" laws, you might as well ask why not everybody is able to conceive children and give birth... in fact, more than half of all humans cannot do this! Seems unfair, no?

@SethJ the rebbe didn't approve of drinking outside of Shabbos and Yom Tov, and even then only a little.

comment Reconciling the Torah and history regarding the Jews' response to reward and punishment
This would be a good question but it seems extremely speculative about even its basic assumptions about how Jews behave in the face of both adversity and comfort.

Could you give an example of something that differs between Zohar and Yerushalmi but does not appear in Bavli?

comment Asking non-Jews to pray for someone
you're mistaking the issue. The problem is the question of where the individual is directing their prayers. Further, it has nothing to do with one's own prayers going unheard - rather, it's just a matter of there being added benefit in additional prayers.

@YDK that would be necessary to rectify any sin, not pgam habris davka

comment Can't use the name of Gd during spontaneous prayer?
@avi right, and you contended that Ado-shem is no different from Ribono shel Olam. According to Kabala this is not the case.

comment What are the requirements of a men's mikva?
As the question was about toveling as a matter of minhag (and not the required times you mention) you should source your statement that toveling as minhag requires a as kosher a mikveh as would be required by a niddah.

@avi there's obviously a difference between saying G-d's Name verbally and saying It according to kabala.
