Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

BRI is an amazing initiative. Lhasa, 1959. Economics has changed a lot since 1944 and geopolitics since 1959. "It doesn't matter whether a cat is black or white, as long as it catches mice." -- Deng Xiaoping The character of the Chinese government hasn't changed one little bit. Lhasa, 1959. That is...

Re: Independent investigation confirms “physical, sexual, emotional abuse” by Sogyal Rinpoche

I have long been wondering to what degree tantric deities are or are not comparable with Jungian archetypes. Saying that they are "same" is obviously not correct. Saying they are completely different somehow does not seem right neither to me. Deity yogas are, fundamentally speaking, dramatized narr...

Re: Independent investigation confirms “physical, sexual, emotional abuse” by Sogyal Rinpoche

Yeah. Sure there are not as many Freudian practitioners of psychoanalysis as there used to be (though they are not as extinct as one might think either) but the fundamentals of psychoanalysis are as current as ever. Psychoanalysis is bollocks. It is not scientific, it is based on the fantasies of o...

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

BRI is an amazing initiative. Lhasa, 1959. Its not the road that's bad... its the dudes who come down that road... which brings me back to - I don't think we want China dominating international affairs. Give it time, that road will also bring the world into China... that's another effect. Lhasa, 19...

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

I frankly see no compelling arguments that negate Hayek's basic thesis here, despite whatever faults his other work may bear. re: " The Road to Serfdom" - It's dated (it's a complete reaction to the rise of fascism in the 20 and 30's) and both Hayek's assumptions and conclusions are false. That sho...

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

I'm not particularly down on the ideals of full socialist economies... I am. Give "Road to Serfdom" a good read. See if you can poke holes in Hayek's arguments. I don't think you can. So you haven't read enough Hayek to know he was for free public healthcare, a basic income and radical free educati...

A true vajra song is an expression of the sound of dharmata.

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

This comes to another point - The US has to become confident in our way of doing things again, because that is what motivates us to help other countries develop in our mold. US influence in Latin America is a mess and the US has historically not done right in the region. There is, however, plenty o...

Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

Then please explain the meaning of Dorje Drolo, who is sitting on a tiger. Agree there are a lot of interpretations and some are valid and some not. Seems to be that this emanation of Guru Rinpoche is one of the most unclear guises of him. Drollo is a variant of Guru Dragpo, this evident from the r...

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

In Canada when I was younger our immigration was a policy of tap on/tap off. Every January our department of labour would do a labour market study and then inform parliament to tailor immigration to current economic conditions. If there was a skills shortage that area could be opened up. If student...

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

I have no idea why, though, someone like Bezos or Dwayne Johnson would want to be president. It doesn’t pay, the job doesn’t bring that much power, and it makes your life hell unless you are a chronic amoral narcissist. For the same reason Bloomberg ran for mayor - civic duty. How about Mattis? In ...

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

Open borders are simply not an option. Wow, Trump really did win. Sad! Its a mistake to give Republicans all the ground on fixing immigration. "No" is not a workable policy. Immigration has been a problem needing fixing for over 2 decades. The issue has been forced. Let's deal with it. Or are you a...

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

Actually if you're going by counties Trump won approximately 2,600 counties to Clinton’s 500 with 304 electoral votes to her 227, but losing the popular vote by almost 3 million. Many are now saying that we need to abolish the electoral college and go by the popular vote. The problem with this is t...

redoing NAFTA and resetting trade with China and Europe is the right move.
This is an error, IMO.
