Re: Trump. And why I hate him.

Its not just me, he's harming most of the people in this country, while his super rich friends get all the benefits taken from the rest of us.

Re: Trump. And why I hate him.

I think from a Buddhist perspective, hating evil is better than loving Trump!! There are far more options than just either "hate evil" or "love Trump." If nothing else, one can be indifferent to Trump. Maybe you're not one of the people that stands to directly suffer from Trump's policies, I am!!

I think I will suffer less if I hate evil, If I love evil I'm bound to suffer!!

Re: Let's make this forum more Buddhist!

Greetings, First choice would be for David to evaporate the News-Events-Politics forum. There are vast numbers of online & other media for that. But I fear he will not - so the other option is for all of us to not post there at all. Just some history (for the sake of background, not to say it needs...

Re: The Truth About The Rohingya Lie

Do you actually think that by discrediting the term Rohingya, you can minimalise the atrocitees that have been perpetrated against Rakhine state Muslims; Rohingya???

Re: the great vegetarian debate

To produce protein from grazing beef, cattle are killed. One death delivers (on average, across Australia’s grazing lands) a carcass of about 288 kilograms. This is approximately 68% boneless meat which, at 23% protein equals 45kg of protein per animal killed. This means 2.2 animals killed for each...

Re: The Truth About The Rohingya Lie

Rohingya is what the people call themselves, irrespective of what the Myanmar government wants to call them, from Wilipedia; Nomenclature[edit] The modern term Rohingya emerged from colonial and pre-colonial terms Rooinga and Rwangya.[69] The Rohingya refer to themselves as Ruáingga /ɾuájŋɡa/.

Re: The Truth About The Rohingya Lie

Really with the huge amount of evidence for the Rohingya genocide it is not much different form Holocaust denial if you deny it. Definitely what I would call a conspiracy theory.

They are defending rape and murder by denying that it is happening when all credible sources point to it being a reality.

Re: The Truth About The Rohingya Lie

What possible difference does it make what you call the Rakhine state Muslims, the point is they are being horribly oppressed, murdered and raped, and you seem to think that is OK??
