Greetings Alan, But, are you really willing to sit, even when everything else is going to hell? Not just sit, I'm also willing to support Trump. https://pics.astrologymemes.com/they-told-me-i-could-be-anything-i-wanted-soi-26583881.png ...even when there are more things you can do to stop the world ...

Re: Is hatred always bad, if you hate what should be hated?

Greetings Alan, Just sitting is not an option when the world is going to hell, I say. Just sitting is a very good option when your world is going to hell. Or better still, sit and throw in a bit of Right Effort for good measure... "And what, monks, is right effort? (i) "There is the case where a mon...

Re: Feminism for men

Greetings Befriend, Its kind of common knowledge Moreso, it's kind of wrong. Don't Buy Into The Gender Pay Gap Myth As for the social engineering involved in pandering to this myth...

My good friend Retro, why it is the inverse of the Dhamma to hate someone who preaches hate?
The suttas linked to immediately above by Nicholas are adequate to make my case.

He is now working on the behest of Putin. And Yes, I am angry. I don't mean to sound disrespectful Alan, but it sounds like you've been w...

Re: Trump. And why I hate him.

Greetings Alan, But, is renunciation the answer in the face of such an obvious, and debilitating, attack on the truth? Truth is good, and praised, but the best truths of all are noble ones which lead to the cessation of suffering. Arguing over worldly "truths" not connected to that goal can actually...

Greetings Alan, Not a Buddha quote If that's your preference... "Aversion itself is unskillful. Whatever an aversive person fabricates by means of body, speech, or intellect, that too is unskillful. Whatever suffering an aversive person — his mind overcome with aversion, his mind consumed — wrongly ...

No. Trump is better met with metta, karuna, mudita and upekkha.

Same applies to any other sentient beings.

Greetings, My good friend Retro Greeting there, Alan. ...you said "Hate is evil". I see no reason to support this. The performance of good actions gives rise to merit (punna), a quality which purifies and cleanses the mind. If the mind is unchecked, it has the tendency to be ruled by evil tendencies...
