From the reading I've done and the few practicing Buddhists I know, I would gather that Buddhism leans to the right socially/politically, but online I see a lot 'hate' toward conservative points of view.

Re: Great Vegan Debate

Re: Quitting alcohol. Dharmic advice?

How exactly will it be policed? :popcorn:
Not sure but it seems like they are getting close to Sharia.
