Re: Minneapolis is burning

Yes. That black men protecting a white police officer is a very powerful image.

Re: Minneapolis is burning

Greetings, The only path is the Buddha's path. :meditate: And there is no Right Looting and Right Destruction on the Noble Eightfold Path. Instead there is Right Action. Peaceful, non-destructive protest is compatible with Right Action. "And what is right action? Abstaining from taking life, abstai...

Re: Minneapolis is burning

I think this is a combination of both police brutality and white supremacy and discrimination. This is not the first time it happened. Are there records black policeman killing a black man? Did this happen when Obama in power? Police brutality is wrong, regardless of the victim or perpetrator's rac...

Re: Should we boycott Palm oil?

In third world Buddhist countries, Western capitalists are exploiting the local natural resources to profit from the palm oil industry. Should Buddhists boycott these products made from morally tainted palm oil? The West already has destroyed forests and using the land for cultivation of sugar cane...

What is this anti vacination movement about?

What is this anti vacination movement about? I can't understand why some people are against vaccination. Having said that I am reluctant to take flue vaccination due to the bad experience I had about 20 years ago. I am aging and everyone is pushing me. Now the anti-vaccination movement for Coronavir...

Re: Everything is backwards, everything is upside down.

Please add any other ironies like this.
- banks rob our money.
- charities exploit poor etc

What is the reason for this? It appears there are people always to exploit any situation. Can we stop this?

Everything is backwards, everything is upside down.

Re: What are the possible fallouts from the Coronavirus?

If people weren't already resentful that a non-Western country is on track to becoming the world's largest economy, I don't think they'd be so quick to blame China for the Coronavirus pandemic. If the outbreak had started in Belgium, would we be hearing anti-Belgian conspiracy theories day after da...

Re: What are the possible fallouts from the Coronavirus?

Greetings, The leader is the mirror image of the followers. And he's going to win even bigger in 2020 than in 2016. It was going to happen anyway, but you could also chalk it down, in part, to the Coronavirus... Or more specifically, the cynical frauds that have been perpetrated in relation to the ...

Re: What are the possible fallouts from the Coronavirus?

I'm appalled by your so-called leader.
In my opinion, Mr. Trump is playing according to polls.
Is it a problem of the leader or the people who voted for them?
The leader is the mirror image of the followers.

He seems to be a very unhappy man irrespective of all his wealth.

Re: Is Billionaire philanthropy a hox?

In some cases, yes, I'm sure it is a hoax. Some of you might remember how Bill Gates was in hot water for anti-trust violations regarding his Microsoft in the 1990s. He was described at being at a 'cross-roads' in life where he had to make a decision -- continue as a ruthless CEO, amassing wealth a...

I always wonder where those billions of donations from billionaires go.
Bill Gates used to be one of my heroes until I watched the following video.
