I don’t think that. Just want to highlight it’s rather subversive character. And of
Course it’s not easy to detect self deception. That’s what tantras are for. Be great to focus on those details instead of silly apologies for heretic dharma.

Re: You will be tame!

Tantra is a reprogramming methodology. One has to recognize language and customs are programmed. And with the internet, it is revived up in power over minds. Politically correct language coercion is exactly the thing putting minds under control. Losing control a little might help someone notice thi...

Re: You will be tame!

I see very little in the way of wisdom in this thread.

I don't even see crazy. Stupid? Yes. Crazy? No.

Crazy is very rarely conscious or purposeful and generally it is spontaneous.

What do you see as a potentially effective form of government that could cultivate and protect the well being of citizens?
Direct democracy with an economic system based on mutual aid.

Re: Who is America ?

For me, the question is how to preserve the good aspects of democracy and rebuild. I don't think it is worth rebuilding. The problem is that since it was built on an unsteady basis (global capitalist colonialism) it was doomed to failure. Representative democracy is dead. The Hillarys and the Trump...

Re: The Healing Touch: Indigenous healers getting results

Would you have posted a mocking video if the documentary was about a Tibetan master? I wonder... Would you have been so impressed if the documentary had been about a white Pentecostal healer? If you knew about the history of Aboriginal Australians you would not even make the specific comparison. Le...

Re: Who is America ?

Yes, fascists/alt-right are big on memes and that screenshot proves nothing. But your second comment is telling. I don't think most voters in the US thought about it this way, but the fact that all the various faults of Trump on full public display were not enough of a deal-breaker should be a huge...

You ar slow. I said no one is. No, you didn't, not at any point did you use a collective noun that included yourself. I may be slow, but I am not stupid. At least, Buddha gave the thoughts on the path the liberation. But you have to take refuge and renounce your former religion. Sorry. It is garbag...

Re: You will be tame!

You think you’re Buddhists? No. You belong to THEM! You’re true religion is Society. And not by choice. You have been coerced. You are under control. You think you’re in a peaceful country? No. You are the enemy. This is a prison camp. Your Family lost and you are enslaved. That good cause you figh...

What if I told you that fascists make memes?

What if I told you that the "common voters" were the one's responsible for putting the current fascists in power?

Greg, I've said what I find to be worthwhile here https://dharmawheel.net/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=29049&start=160#p460583 and in other posts. But yeah, you're right, it's getting repetitive. I do not disagree with you about these means, I think that they are useful too. I am not under delusion that pu...

Can you please describe what YOU believe is the correct tactic, because it seems to me the only thing you have been doing so far is to hover around and swoop down on other people's recommendations.

It is awfully Socratic, but oh so tedious...

Re: Swat Valley/Oddiyana

All cool posts- I’m learning a lot here, but I’m curious- I posted this in the Dharma in Everyday Life forum, but nobody’s even mentioned Malala Yousafzai, who was the occasion for the OP. We’re talking about a land of sacred origins, yes, but aren’t we equally talking about the home of a real livi...

If she is not a dharma practitioner, it is not dharma in everyday life. Mother Teresa wasn't dharma in everyday life either. Not he dharma as it is meant in this forum at least.

Also, she is unrelated to dharma in everyday life.
Seems to me that you misunderstand the meaning of the word "Dharma".

Hint: It is not just about robes, bells and incense, or sitting on a pillow and chanting.

A topic based on gossip and hearsay, with no particular goal except to generate doubt and dissension.
