3) If the west is so so bad and only out of greed can a person chose to emigrate into it, then why are you living in the west ? Why don't you put your skin where your mouth is ? You're no different then antifa communist who would never even contemplate living for a couple of years, let alone a lifetime anywhere else except a capitalist and democratic country from the west.

You also missed question nr 2.

1)Even the most indoctrinated person into Russian propaganda would concede a point from time to time and say "yea, maybe stabbing or beating gay people like animals is a "-1" score for russia".
Its irrelevant. Violence towards gay people is not directly related to the Russian legislation. I think a person confused about morality, law and cause & effect would blame the legislation for the violence. For example, where I live, a man beat up a registered pedophile. The man ended up in prison. Most of the people I know here shocked me when they supported the attacker. My view was a known & registered pedophile should not be beaten up but most of my community think otherwise. My view is as it is because I believe in moral law. To me, law and moral law are pretty much black & white.

In the video, the lady:

1. Correctly said the Russian govt should stop the violence. :thumbsup:

2. Wrongly said the Russian govt should repeal the Propaganda Law. :thinking:

The lady does not know the Middle-Way. :yingyang:

If such things are good kamma, then are you doing such things to your 2 gays friends that you mentioned in this topic ?
My gay friends, one of whom is a school teacher of young children, do not believe in propagating gay literature to young children. Further, they do not support many LGBT causes. They are against the politicization of homosexuality. They are highly spiritually developed plus they have lots of money because of making good kamma in past lives. They are not feral peasants reborn in a backwards country due to evil deeds in past lives.

2) Also, if Putin is such a great guy and has popular support, why is he assassinating leaders of the opposition, journalist etc ? Why doesn't he allow democracy in his country if he is confident in having popular support ?
Its irrelevant to me because I don't follow Russian politics. If he really assassinates people (for example, the British assassination appears to be a lie) then this is bad kamma; just as promoting lust to children is bad kamma. Buddhism 101.

I lived in Asia for many years. Its better than here. But my mother is getting old now. However, I do live in a fairly secluded place; unlike you that rejoices in city life. If I take a photo from by front yard, it will be of National Park forest. Unfortunately, I must earn a living, which is why I spend business hours on the internet. If I did not have a business, I would probably not have internet.

Unfortunately, allegations of pedophilia are very high within the sphere of Western governments and unfortunately, the aggressive politicization of homosexuality leads to a backlash against it. Ignorance people will revolt violently. This is cause & effect. Buddhism 101.
Peter Gary Tatchell (born 25 January 1952) is a British human rights campaigner, originally from Australia, best known for his work with LGBT social movements.

Tatchell was selected as the Labour Party's parliamentary candidate for Bermondsey in 1981. He was then denounced by party leader Michael Foot for allegedly supporting extra-parliamentary action against the Thatcher government. Labour subsequently allowed him to stand in the Bermondsey by-election in February 1983. In the 1990s he campaigned for LGBT rights through the direct action group OutRage!, which he co-founded. He has worked on various campaigns, such as Stop Murder Music against music lyrics allegedly inciting violence against LGBT people and writes and broadcasts on various human rights and social justice issues. He attempted a citizen's arrest of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe in 1999 and again in 2001.

In April 2004, he joined the Green Party of England and Wales and in 2007 was selected as prospective parliamentary candidate in the constituency of Oxford East,[4][5][6] but in December 2009 announced he was standing down due to brain damage he says was caused by a bus accident as well as damage inflicted by Mugabe's bodyguards when Tatchell tried to arrest him in 2001, and by neo-Nazis in Moscow while campaigning for gay rights. Since 2013 he has been a full-time employee of the Peter Tatchell Foundation.

Peter Tatchell: The UK should look at lowering the age of consent to 14

EFFECT:
Homosexual activists in Britain working to lower age of consent to 14 years old!

It could happen here soon unless people take action
POSTED: September 10, 2010

Ten years ago, after fierce lobbying by the the homosexual movement, Britain lowered the age of consent for homosexual sex acts to 16. Now they have announced they are working to lower it to 14.

For years MassResistance has demonstrated how the homosexual activists are obsessed with children. That's why they put so much energy into getting into the public schools with programs to make kids comfortable with homosexuality and homosexual behaviors. And they work incrementally to achieve their sexual-radical goals (the "slippery slope").

Unfortunately, many laws in Russia just do not work (or work only when this is useful for government). Police, army, government, courts are totally corrupted. It's been like that since the fall of the USSR, since 1991. Before that there was corruption as well, of course, but not massive, absolute. Now it is massive, all-pervading, terrible.

DootDot has the wrong impresion that PC politics and promotion of LBGT + politicizing of this issue is happening in eastern europe too. This kind if thing is non-existent here, the divide is between pro-corruption and anti-corruption forces in all eastern european countries.

It's also a complete non-issue that is not even being used by anti-EU forces locally. This kind of propaganda is aimed at western targets of russian propaganda done in english language, it's not meant for local consumption too much.

There are so many thousands of real problems here. Unimaginable corruption, death due to infections contacted in hospitals (most people avoid public hospitals unless absolutally necessary in RO), lack of infrastructure, minuscule wages, the mafia that many times is invulnerable due to corruption of the justice system, etc. etc. etc. But hey, the real problem here is gays and the gay education that is happening in USA and non-existent in eastern europe.

As I've said, DootDot is reading RussiaToday in english language and consumes propaganda meant for western audiences. Russian propaganda meant for local consumption is all about bashing the EU. In western europe it says that the eastern part of the EU is a big problem, dragging the wages down, sending a ton of gypsies and bad people there, stealing all their jobs, taking EU development funds, etc. and being a super bad thing economically for them. In the eastern side of the EU it says we are just "a market for them to sell their products", that we're exploited by multinational companies, etc. and that the EU is super bad for us economically - the reverse of what they are saying in the west.

Needless to say all economic data shows that the EU is extraordinary from an economic point of view for all members involved, same as the USA is better economically for all states involved than it would be if each state would be a separate market. The poorest eastern european members of the EU are 8 times richer than russian collonies (Rep. MD, Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia etc.) and their economic growth rate is among the biggest in the world. The difference is only getting bigger. No need to even bring up the differences in terms of democracy, freedom of press, human rights, etc. between these countries.

Did Buddha advice people to do their best to live in a hellhole, or did he want people to have a good standard of living ? How could a good indended person want others to live in poverty, lack of justice, etc. and call them greedy if they want a better life for them and people around them ?

You two guys/girls/transgenders are too funny. Its like you two are craving or longing for the old Communist era. The West won't help you. The difference between the West & Russia is the West is similar to a collapsing 40 storey building and Russia is similar to a collapsing 10 storey building. Both are collapsing into Plutocratic Totalitarianism.

Dootdot, take a look at this graph:

https://www.google.com/publicdata/explo ... &ind=false

Also look at it with USA included:

https://www.google.com/publicdata/explo ... &ind=false

Does that look like the west collapsing to you? During the last 30 years, the eastern european side that has joined the EU has been by far the most succesful area of the world. No other area in this world has made such progress in economy, democracy, personal freedom, etc. as this area. Nobody has come even close. It's the most explosive area on earth. And it keeps rising. My country in particular has a 7% growth rate per year and is predicted to have the same for many years to come.

The fact that the 1% of the population that is gay isn't send to the labor camp anymore simply didn't had the negative impact you and the propaganda you are reading predicted it would have. That had about the same impact as the european collared doves population rising or shrinking. It's simply a non-issue.

Sorry to ruin your conspiracy theory, but no, model is russian 8-) All those guys, and even those in the power today, come from Communist Party of the Soviet Union. What we have here today is USSR 2.0 as some call it. KGB still in power and rules over everything. Putin (who was designated by Yeltsin) is ex-KGB officer. Yeltsin himself - member of Central Committee of CPSU and legally elected President of RSFSR (Central part of the USSR). The collapse of USSR itself was designed by Gorbachev. "Perestroika" - I guess you heard the word.

West, actually, did nothing when USSR collapsed.

:goodpost: Only thing I would add is that the term "collapse" that is generally used when reffering to the event makes it look like something bad. In reality, life improved dramatically for all warsaw pact member states due to swiching to capitalism after the 10 year transition period passed (as can be seen by my graph), even though the system is rigged and there are gigantic levels of corruption. Things improved even more for those countries that chose to integrate into the EU following the event.

The jump from 1.500$ gdp per capita to 11.000$ is huge. I remember when I was little, there wasn't even public linghting between the flatblocks, just the big streets were lighted. We were freezing in school, there were no decent toys avaliable or sale, etc. It's enough for a westerner to watch an eastern european film from the 90s to see how this place looked in that period. It was a hellhole.

Also, it is worth mentioning that an analysis has been done regarding what made some eastern european countries end up richer than others despite starting on equal footing in 89. For example Poland is richer than Bulgaria. It was concluded that the main factor was how fast privatization was done. It didn't matter that these privatizations were 10 times out of 10 a huge theft, all that mattered was how fast they were done. In countries that ended up richer, there was usually an anti-communist elite, usually living aboard, that ended up taking control after 89. In countries like my own, the (now supposedly reformed) communist party continued in power and delayed privatization by a lot. Initially they didn't want to do it at all and pushed the "we're not selling our country" propaganda to the plebs. Needless to say how catastrophically these state-owned companies were managed by the state and milked out of every penny by people from the top all the way down to the smallest worker working in them. It turned out it was simply better to give them away for free to corrupt politicians that at least run them better due to being their property than to keep them running like that.

I can't find the source of the actual head American University Professor but I read it in Wikipedia about the US technocrats who designed Perestroika. Regardless, let me ask you some logical questions:

1. Are you saying those original Oligarchs, who were all Jewish except for Vladimir Potanin (Boris Berezovsky, Mikhail Fridman, Vladimir Gusinsky, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Vladimir Potanin, Alexander Smolensky, Pyotr Aven, Vladimir Vinogradov and Vitaly Malkin), came from the Communist Party and obtained the money they used to buy the State assets from within Russia? :shrug:

2. Are you saying many of the current Oligarchs, who are also Jewish, obtained their capital from within Russia? :shrug:

Just like terrorists groups such as ISIS must obtain their weapons & funding from a source; any oligarch that bought & operated old Communist State assets was probably required to obtain capital funding from a source. Its not just one thing to buy a defunct asset. An asset that operates inefficiently & unprofitably must be debt funded until it makes making a profit. Those financiers that provide debt funding simply do not provide it with no strings attached & no long term plans so their financial investment is protected.

Therefore, most logically, the Russian Oligarchs obviously obtained their capital funding from the West, including Israel, which is why many of them are connected to Israel. Given most of the Oligarchs were & still remain Jewish, their funding & planning most logically mostly came from their Jewish financial connections in the West.

I think you need to provide evidence that this did not occur. Your Hollywood ideas of "Perestroika" is too simplistic; just like the idea that ISIS obtained weapons from nowhere is too simplistic.

Sorry to ruin your heedlessness & smugness 8-) about your reincarnation in Russia due to your personal deeds committed in past lives but if what is occurring in Russia is of Russian design then:

1. Its sabhava (own nature) is Russian.

2. Being "Russian", it is as it should be (dhammatā) and such (tathata).

3. What is occurring in Russia has no relationship whatsoever to Armenia; given Armenians are a tight culture with historical cultural connection to Orthodox Christianity, which you personally completely reject. As I informed you, I know many Armenians and their culture is inherent in their changing their government. This is due to their past life kamma. But those reborn in servile dictatorships such as Russia & Romania cannot do what the Armenians did because of past life kamma. Because of past life kamma, Armenians choose to be Orthodox Christians. But due to past life kamma, some Russians and Romanians choose to pervert Buddhism and dig a deeper hole for themselves. If these Russians & Romanians took True Refuge in the Buddha-Dhamma, greed & lust for money would not predominate in their political & personal thinking.

4. In summary, just as the 1st Bolshevik government was reported to be 85% Jewish, today it appears Russia remains an economically controlled Jewish State, controlled by mostly Jewish Oligarchs or Plutocrats, with, according to you, Putin as their puppet; as reported in the Jeruslem Post.

5. According to Buddhism (MN 135), it was your personal past kamma that resulted in your reincarnation in Russia; where Oligarchy, be it Czarist, Bolshevik, Communist or Neo-Liberal is, according to you, inherently "Russian".

6. OK. If you wish to believe (similar to believing in God or Jesus) it is "Russian" then let it be, in your mind, "Russian". If you want to change Russia from what Russia inherently is then, imo, this is very bad kamma. You should not subvert inherent cultures. Instead, you should emigrate cultures. If you had real conviction in your beliefs, you would leave Russia, like many reincarnated in Russia changed their past life kamma and emigrated from Russia.

7. The Buddha taught kamma can be changed. But by staying in Russia, you have decided to not change your past life kamma but instead, as Krishamurti taught, engage in a revolution within the prison. :lol: :roll:

Buddhism explains it is past life kamma. Poland historically was always a very different nation than the peasant backwardness of Bulgaria & Romania.

@DootDot:

1) Ideas about everything happening due to past life kamma are ridiculous.

2) Romania got rid of a north-korean style dictatorship through a violent revolution. Mass protests much bigger than Armenia had been happening recently. For example the 200k (10% of Bucharest population) protests from february 2017 against the legalization of corruption.

3) Where did you get the idea that Romania is doing bad ? Romania is nr 1 fastest growing economy in europe. It has been like that for many years before the economic crisis and after that passed, it went back to being nr 1 fastest growing economy in europe. The transformation Romania has went through got it from a north-korean brutal and impovrished dictatorship to a respectable member of the EU and, again, nr 1 fastest growing economy from Europe. GDP growth rate for 2017: - 8.8%

https://themarketmogul.com/romania-economy/

Why are Russian collonies like Rep. Moldova, Belarus, Ukraine, Goergia (kept on Russian side through wars and tanks on the ground) standing at a GDP 6 to 8 times smaller than US or any other eastern european country that joined the EU ? To say nothing about their levels of democracy, freedom of press, etc. ?

This sounds like wrong view of Nanavira momentary Dependent Origination. Birth & death in DO are "physical" and occur over three-lifetimes, as taught in the history of Buddhism. From Bhikkhu Sujato:
And what is wrong view?

Katamā ca, bhikkhave, micchādiṭṭhi?

There’s no meaning in giving, sacrifice, or offerings. There’s no fruit or result of good and bad deeds. There’s no afterlife. There are no duties to mother and father. No beings are reborn spontaneously. And there’s no ascetic or brahmin who is well attained and practiced, and who describes the afterlife after realizing it with their own insight.’

‘Natthi dinnaṃ, natthi yiṭṭhaṃ, natthi hutaṃ, natthi sukatadukkaṭānaṃ kammānaṃ phalaṃ vipāko, natthi ayaṃ loko, natthi paro loko, natthi mātā, natthi pitā, natthi sattā opapātikā, natthi loke samaṇabrāhmaṇā sammaggatā sammāpaṭipannā ye imañca lokaṃ parañca lokaṃ sayaṃ abhiññā sacchikatvā pavedentī’ti—

Take some woman or man who doesn’t give to ascetics or brahmins such things as food, drink, clothing, vehicles; garlands, perfumes, and makeup; and bed, house, and lighting.

Idha, māṇava, ekacco itthī vā puriso vā na dātā hoti samaṇassa vā brāhmaṇassa vā annaṃ pānaṃ vatthaṃ yānaṃ mālāgandhavilepanaṃ seyyāvasathapadīpeyyaṃ.

Because of undertaking such deeds, after death they’re reborn in a place of loss …

So tena kammena evaṃ samattena evaṃ samādinnena kāyassa bhedā paraṃ maraṇā apāyaṃ duggatiṃ vinipātaṃ nirayaṃ upapajjati.

or if they return to the human realm, they’re poor

The rebirth, inception, conception, reincarnation, manifestation of the aggregates, and acquisition of the sense fields of the various sentient beings in the various orders of sentient beings.

Yā tesaṃ tesaṃ sattānaṃ tamhi tamhi sattanikāye jāti sañjāti okkanti abhinibbatti khandhānaṃ pātubhāvo, āyatanānaṃ paṭilābho—

This is called rebirth.

ayaṃ vuccatāvuso, jāti.

No, I didn't. Obviously you did not read or were unable (due to past life kamma) to read my post. I said the Oligarchy in Russia appear to be the same as the Oligarchy in the West. I doubt peasants reincarnated in Romania can understand the role of International Finance Capital.
There is always an official executioner. If you try to take his place, It is like trying to be a master carpenter and cutting wood. If you try to cut wood like a master carpenter, you will only hurt your hand.
