Re: Why are far-right political views so predominant on DW?

I see lots of political-contentious topics being created by a user by the name of L.N. :tongue: False. I have created topics regarding Right Speech in the Sila section. Saying it is "false" doesn't make it false. You have created numerous meta-discussions, contentious topics, political topics. You ...

Re: Why are far-right political views so predominant on DW?

Just a little over a year ago a poll was made for DW members' choices for POTUS. That thread was closed just a little over 6 months ago. (So it's a fairly recent thread and poll.) 47% chose Hillary Clinton 17% chose Jill Stein So that's 64% of DW members choosing a left wing or left of center candid...

Re: Why are far-right political views so predominant on DW?

Has anyone else noticed a recurring undercurrent of far-right sentiments and views cropping up in discussions here on DW, even in discussions which are not political in nature, such as Dhamma discussion regarding Right Speech?

Palillo's character was known for his phrase, "Ooh, ooh! Mr. Kotter!" and his distinct laugh. But the a...

Re: wat metta in Valley Center CA USA

Speaking of Wat Metta, there is a forest fire in San Diego County right now that is not too far from the monastery. The good news though is that the fire is West of the fairly wide Interstate 15 freeway and the monastery is a few miles East of the freeway, so I'd imagine it would take a pretty big w...

Re: If life is suffering, then wouldn't it be unethical to have children?

I look at it this way. Having kids is essentially in and of itself a neutral action. You don't need any special qualities to do it. Your intentions could be good, bad, or neutral. You could have kids because you love your spouse and want to raise a child together in a positive, loving environment. ...
