He was never a good businessman. That's clearly part of the problem.

Re: Your Guide to Inauguration Day 2017

The size of yesterday's marches made it pretty clear just how unpopular Trump is. Thank goodness the majority hasn't been conned by a mendacious, self-serving, xenophobe.

Re: We've been here all along.

Nothing fancy. Just plain old greed, hatred and delusion resulting in the terrible oppression of people of color in South Africa. To call racism selectiveness seems to do a disservice to the very real harm it causes. Can you explicate your reasoning behind that? Selectiveness is a general term with...

Re: We've been here all along.

So the appartheit regime in South Africa was there because the White folk didnt wanna hang out with the Black folk? and/or viceversa And they decided to shorthand that with a whip? What else? Do you think there is some fancy transcendental reason for it? Nothing fancy. Just plain old greed, hatred ...

To all the white guys (I'm a white guy by the way) arguing about being triggered and safe-spaces and the like let me ask you this: how would you feel if your wife were harassed just for being her? How would you feel if your son was physically assaulted? These things are happening here, now, in the U...

Re: "Online Buddhists aren't real Buddhists" - Yes or No?

Are you looking for some kind of guarantee before you commit yourself? Who doesn't? Why should it be so bad to want some kind of guarantee before committing? Hi binocular, Here's my two cents, please take it for what it's worth: commit to practice, any practice provisionally. Set yourself a goal, o...

Re: The World's Top Ten Most Generous Countries

I think it rather suspicious that in a BBC article, 6 English speaking countries make it into the top ten, But the BBC is merely the messenger here. The data’s source is the Charities Aid Foundation. Search Google News for “CAF World Giving Index 2016” and you’ll have the pleasure of reading exactl...

Re: Husserl's own words on reading the suttas

Btw: Has anyone here (or in the various "phenomenology" threads) ever read Husserl's own writings?
:hello: Hand shown...I studied philosophy in college and Husserl along with Merleau-Ponty were some of my favorites...
