Re: MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT: Forthcoming Changes to the DW Forums

From a dhammic perspective we can easily see through different political agendas by which ones promote compassion for all beings, vs which ones promote compassion primarily for rich oligarchs, its not possible to understand the dhamma and support policies like our current President IMHO

Re: MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT: Forthcoming Changes to the DW Forums

Re: Contemporary threats to free speech

They have protective custody for target prisoners in prison and jail, they also have solitary for police officers etc sentenced to prison, there is no possibility he will be set loose in the general prison population, so the murder speculation is pretty bogus.

Re: Contemporary threats to free speech

He was arrested and sentenced for violating his probation on a previous conviction, thats why the trial was so quick. Technically, he was not on probation, but there were conditions relating to the suspended sentence he received. If that were the only reason why the trial was so quick, there would ...

I believe one of them identifies as Hindu
What is the motivation for a Hindu or a person of any other religion to hang around in a Buddhist forum?
Especially when their behavior is giving a bad name to the forum.
This is a job for the Dhamma police!!
