But they are all based on money,power,weaponry and position.
All the general ideology comes from the ruling class,which is one reason we have the chattering mind!
Buddha transcended the ruling class by disassociating himself from the monarchy,and Meditating the ruling class chattering ideology out of his psyche. And it's something that we should all strive to achieve. A lot of what is accepted as fact,science,tradition or consensus is in fact ruling class ideology. And I see a lot of in traditional buddhism. The tainted buddhism of the ruling elite.
Interesting. Zenny tries to creatively merge his marxist[-leninist] view of society with buddhism. :lol:
I'm neither marxist nor buddhist.
And awareness of class and awareness of reality both exist outside of Marxism and buddhism.

In the West there is wealth discrimination but it does not anybody becoming rich.
Prince Harry got married to a commoner.
India sri lanka and most south east asia countries lagging is due to their culture , lax mentaliti , slacking and slothful attitude .
