News-related & Lounge Discussion now moves to DWE

Post by retrofuturist »

Greetings all,

From December 31st 2008 to June 5th 2018, general discussions relating to News, Current Events, Politics and general Lounge conversation were permitted here at Dhamma Wheel.

In order to increase the focus here on Theravāda Buddhism discussion, the sub-forums in which such discussion was held are now closed indefinitely. (More on the logic behind that decision here)

There were actually some very interesting and well-considered discussions throughout that time (plus, yes, a lot that weren't...) so rather than remove them from view, we're providing them to you in the forum of a read-only archive.

If you wish to discuss any of these topics, or discuss similar matters, we recommend registering at Dharma Wheel Engaged, which has an active News forum, as well as a Lounge section for casual conversation with kalyanamittas. Check it out!
