It's hard to be happy in a country you feel to be fundamentally rotten.
Yes. These thoughts would be oppressive.

Re: CCP Virus is correct name

Greetings, Now that the Coronavirus pandemic is getting better in the United States and I am under less fear of the virus, I am also less afraid of offending the Chinese government in desperation for their help. So, you admit it was a subjective fear rather than objective view. Good for you. That's ...

Re: Sujato on Conceit

Greetings, The Dharma is timeless. I do wonder whether this worldly/engaged/SJW/activist Dharma will stand the test of time... Will such words, slander and confusion be met with shame and remorse in time? Time will tell. On a side note, if the bhikkhu in question would like to go beyond poor guess-w...

Re: Should we have a world protest day?

Greetings, If BLM can't accept all lives matters means they practice the same segregation (discrimination) that they are protesting or fighting against. Surely you already knew this though, Sarath? You didn't take it seriously, did you? The amount of black people aborted and killed by gun violence, ...

Re: Biden calls Trump the first racist president

Greetings, And if you believe that, you'll believe anything, Rasmussen is fake news polling!! Except that they got 2016 right and continue to be the most accurate pollsters in the Trump era. I'm sorry this is happening to you. The narrative is falling apart, whilst you remain soundly asleep. :candle:

Re: Biden calls Trump the first racist president

Greetings, So Biden, the man who says "you ain't black" if you don't vote for him thinks Trump is racist. Interestingly, black likely voters don't seem to think seem to share his sentiment. In fact, Trump has higher approval among black likely voters than white likely voters! :shock: https://twitter...

This suggests that convert Buddhists imported the political beliefs they already had and continued to privilege those secular beliefs. That's Engaged Budd...

Re: Black Lives Matter

Greetings, Anyone that denies racism is a big problem in America is inevitably some kind of racist themselves. When people do as you do here, you diminish the meaning of the term "racist", so that it's rendered devoid of any meaning whatsoever. I doubt this is your intention, but it is the consequen...
