Re: Specter of Communism

6. Deception and Defense The specter’s most diabolical schemes are carried out in broad daylight, where they are presented as sensible, reasonable, and legal. They are so pervasive that it is difficult to expose these schemes for what they are. At times, certain aspects of the specter’s agenda are ...

Re: Critical Race Theory

Don't worry. I'm confident! Ah, but are you wise? Wisdom needs more than assertions. Wisdom requires humility when the vastness & depth of Life is seen, but not understood.

Re: Specter of Communism

Let's not forget the spectre of capitalism. US capitalism especially. And what is communism really but one party capitalism. A different type of capitalism. You know why the US hated communism? Because it was a business rival. That's the only reason. Nonsense. Hatred of Marxism pervaded most of the...

Miracles Around Us

This was a 2008 TV series that gives us many examples of synchronistic, odd & mysterious phenomena that fit the loose notion of "miracles". They can be watched for free on Tubi TV or other places online. Darrin McGavin was the host. One nifty one was about a truck driver who hears on his CB radio a ...

Much though he recites the sacred texts, but acts not accordingly, that heedless man is like a cowherd who only counts the cows of others — he does not partake of the blessings of the holy life. 20.

Re: Is it really liberal/progressive to offer free college?

Another proposal the Biden Administration is seriously considering is to wipe out all student tuition debt. But how about the students who worked hard, maybe even two jobs, plus a full time student load and paid off all their debts? Since there is no debt for them to wipe out, would the government ...

Re: Pro-Life

Unnecessary pro-life maneuvers: Sloppy reading - this story has zero to do with pro-life. There is an evil tendency that a few mothers have, where they want to be seen as a super savior of their child.

Consciousness is not regarded as an emergent property of this process, but is itself seen as one of the conditions for it to occu...
