Re: this anthill fumes by night and flames by day

The bolt, monk, this is a synonym for ignorance. Take out the bolt, get rid of ignorance, dig, clever one, bringing a tool.

Re: Why are far-right political views so predominant on DW?

Buddhism does not support greed therefore making oneself a billionaire without care towards the social-economic consequences to others is not Buddhist. Buddhism does not teach judging others in this manner. Focus on yourself instead of railing against people who have different political views. If y...

Re: Why are far-right political views so predominant on DW?

"Overwrought" is yet a further effort to assess my perceived state of mind. Get that through your head. False. It is simply what your analysis is ... calling your analyses "overwrought" makes no comment one way or another about any neuroses, hang ups etc. Fair enough, if that is how you truly inten...

Re: Why are far-right political views so predominant on DW?

What the heck are you talking about? Buddhism, if it is anything, is a path for ones liberation. Trying to differentiate political views as to whether or not they are "Buddhist" is completely missing the point. It also is disrespectful of other views. Buddhism contains two types of teachings: 1. te...

Re: George Soros is not the evil mastermind behind a liberal conspiracy.

If you have noticed an influx of liberal trolls in comment feeds and throughout social media sniping the top comments on say: fox news facebook comments. Or Donald Trump’s twitter, it is important to understand, these are not normal people, this is a concerted effort by George Soros funded Media Ma...

Re: Contemporary threats to free speech (this is not off-topic)

So the Dhamma Wheel team (I presume they are acting as a team) are now using the terms and conditions to close down open discussion. Was this topic so scary and are members so precious that it could not be allowed to stand? Is this level of censorship really needed here? https://dhammawheel.com/vie...

Today has been a mess.

I give appreciation for those with whom I disagree. We all have value, and we all are deserving of respect.

Re: Why are far-right political views so predominant on DW?

limited role for government - probably not buddhist; while buddhism would not support big govt, it does support govt rather than law of the jungle limited social programs - yes & no buddhist; buddhism supports self-reliance but also a charity safety net promoting traditional social values - very bu...

Re: Why are far-right political views so predominant on DW?

For the love of Buddha, please cease your overwrought behavioural analyses and get back to the topic. I honestly don't know how to get this through your head. And I don't know how to get through your head what I have tried to tell you. You think I don't want to listen to you. I think you do not wan...

Re: George Soros is not the evil mastermind behind a liberal conspiracy.

Greetings, My comments accord with what has been made known & with morality ( sila ) :geek: rather than with the adhammic slander of "fringe right". Where as your comments appear to accord with ignoble speech in Buddhism because you have provided no evidence to support your claims about George Soro...

Re: Right Speech: The Person in the Ball

I don't remember the requirements for Right Speech on the Noble Eightfold Path being so pedantic, prescriptive and precious. As noted in the OP, this is not about requirements. It is supposed to be a Dhamma discussion. You believe my approach to Dhamma is "pedantic, prescriptive and precious." That...

Re: Right Speech: The Person in the Ball

Examples of addressing the ball: "Your words are insensitive." "Your posts are liberal/conservative." "You comments may be taken personally." If that's the case then these are not much batter than the examples of addressing the person inside the ball. "Your words are insensitive"... words are just ...
