I could've said: "Atheists think that they are hardcore because they don't believe in God. But Buddhists don't even believe in people! - except in a notional or discursive sense, and excepting the personalists (who lost), and then there's the Pudgala section of the Adhidamma, but there, we . . .

I am not at war with the universe - though that doesn't mean I have to like it.That's the trouble with ravers and Discordians; they insist upon liking it. The disciples of sweetness and light are characterized by grasping desperation. (And no, I'm not against it, either. Didn't I already say . . . (More)
"Don't you know there's a war going on?" - 1960s commonplace So you're all up in arms because the miiddle class is becoming poor? Or, to be candid, because it is becoming less middle-class?

It is very difficult - for US - to see what is directly in front of our faces. So what IS? Short version: Everything is terrible, and there is no hope. That should send most of you scurrying off to look at porn. Have a nice day, meat puppets. Let's start with the Great Pacific G . . . (More)
Apparently I think and speak more lucidly in dreams than in "real" life. In the dream , I was talking with a composite character, I think based on Facebook "friends" I chose because I am their fanboy, and on people I have actually known - an avuncular bohemian elder statesman.

There may actually be nothing more persistently compelling than Shane Watson's various endeavors on these here tubes.

There was recently a lucid think piece in, of all places,the New Yorker, reviewing several current books touching on crime and violence in America - the place what I am in. Many of these try to devise a plausible story about why our badness quotient is so murderously high. A . . . (More)
