There seems to be some kind of equilibrium point where you maximize the בין אדם לחבירו ובין אדם למקום.
[obligations of the Torah that are between Man and God and other obligations that are between man and man.]
For we see groups that are not religious at all. Then there are groups that are more religious and then even more until you get to the ultra religious. And the measure of menshichkeit/human decency seems to take a nose dive according to the degree people are religious.There seems to be a kind of inverse proportionality.
But to be not religious at all is not an option for there are plenty of obligations of the Torah that are בין אדם למקום between Man and God. [And being totally secular has already been noticed also seems to affect obligation between man and fellow man adversely. So what I suggest there is some middle point. Perhaps Conservative Judaism where you maximize both sets of obligations without detracting from the other.
Therefore you have to say there is some middle point where both functions are maximized.
[The fact of the religious being dismal in obligations between man and fellow man is something they will rigorously deny though anyone outside of their immediate close friends and family will admit this to be true after any degree of experience with them. Unless he happens to be one of the naive rich secular Jews that they make a whole song and dance to impress. Other than that everyone knows the frum world is a nightmare when it comes to human decency.]
I wish I could say the more religious the better but the facts overwhelmingly point towards this terrible problem that the religious will vehemently deny and try to hide. You might not believe me now, but after letting them into your life, and seeing the infinite, irreparable damage they cause, you will see my point.
People are now being taught: Do not resist. Do not question them. To point out the problems is considered lashon hara You must comply. Go along, to get along.
