Re: Is Buddhism exclusive ?

Greetings James,

Agreed, and Advanced Mathematics and Buddhism are alike in the sense that the majority will not even bother to embark upon learning them, because there's too much effort involved.

Metta,
Paul. :)

Re: Is Buddhism exclusive ?

Greetings James, Is Buddhism exclusive ? Or all accommodating ? Tailoring or catering for or available to only a few, selected, restricted , elite and excellent people . I don't think it's truly any of the above. It's exclusive only to the extent that certain teachings will be beyond the capability ...

Re: Yesterday Trump Called Latinos "Animals"

Greetings Kamran, I've noticed you brand everyone and everything into one of two categories: 1) Trump supporter or 2) open door globalist. Where did I say there were only two worldviews, only two categories? Or was that simply your projection? It seems you're quite adept at projection Kamran. Metta,...

Greetings Kamran, I see you added this to your above post... Your repeated branding of everyone as either for Trump or for the "open border glabalists" as if those were the only two options is also a fascist tactic. It sounds like any perspective you do not like is to be labelled "fascist"? Hmmm... ...

... this is a classic case of fascism.
This "Chicken Little" act didn't work in 2016, and it looks more ridiculous and more incongruous with every passing day.

If that's the best that Trump haters can muster in 2018, it's going to be a long 8 years.

Re: Has Trump done anything against PC culture since he won the presidency, or was it just rhetoric ?

Greetings Circle5, I don't know, name me anything concrete done against PC. Politically correctness is more of a cultural thing, than a legal thing, so culturally, he has done what needed to be done in order to remove its potency - namely, not pandering to it. The fact that he doesn't pander to, nor...

If you deny the racism, you're part of the problem!!
If you see racism in anything and everything, you might just be a 21st century Democrat.

Seems our foreign right wing friends aren't aware of how prevalent racism is in the USA.
Or moreover, how pervasive you're told it is by those who benefit from keeping you divided and subjugated, through their identity politics.
