Paragraph 7.

Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...

Hello Stefan,

Stefan said: I am asking what the name is, not create a new one.

This is a good thing. If there is no name, then there is no name.

Here is interesting sutta:

    So long, bhikkhus, as I did not directly know as they really are the gratification, the danger, and the escape in the case of these four elements, I did not claim to have awakened to the unsurpassed perfect enlightenment in this world with its devas, Måra, and Brahmå, in this generation with its recluses and brahmins, its devas and humans...The knowledge and vision arose in me: ‘Unshakeable is my liberation of mind; this is my last birth; now there is no more re-becoming" SN14.31 (2) Before My Enlightenment
"Life is a struggle. Life will throw curveballs at you, it will humble you, it will attempt to break you down. And just when you think things are starting to look up, life will smack you back down with ruthless indifference..."

If you have to give a name to them, I'd go for "The 3 Aspects". "Standpoints" don't make sense here.
I'll be away from 20 April. Be well!
