Re: Is Billionaire philanthropy a hox?

Thanks, Dan
I personally have not seen the result of charity from any of these billionaires.
Anyway, there is no smoke without fire.
However, the objective of this post is to have an open discussion.

Re: Cambodian school made of trash

Inspiring story.
This is one of my dreams to teach Sri Lanka children living in shanties free of charge.
However, I hope I can teach the Dhamma to peopole free of charge and this will make a difference to the world one day.

Re: The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Good video.
Sometimes I say "The great solutions are the next big problem".
That is the nature of this Samsara or Dukkha.

Re: Sujato and Anarchism

I think Bhante Sujato is the complete opposite of an Anarchist. If you want to test it join the Sutta Central discussion forum and oppose his views. By the way, Buddha is not an anarchist in my opinion however he formed the Sangha community. Even the Sangha community has Vinaya rules. We can't play ...

Re: Let's skip the Civil War

I like the show but it is trying to shake off the real problems and trying to patch it up. The division in America is not the same division in the family. You can call a family division if you have a problem with America and England. It is not a family division if it is between American and China. I...

Will the world experience young people led to revolution?

Will the world experience young people led to revolution?

I started to feel the world will be changed by the young but not by the old as it used to be in the past.
What young people lacking are experience and leadership.

Re: US presidential debates 2020

This debate was better than the first.
In my opinion, Trump did a good job.
Bidden was in power for more than eight years.
Why he could not do what he promised to do at that time?

Re: Aljazeera vs. Nas Daily

I have seen Nas Daily a few times but not seen any of his ambitions. However, I agree that it is time that humanity is united without borders. Do not let the politicians destroy the world. What we need is real democracy, not hypocrisy. If the man who got the most money to spent on election gets elec...

Now kids are just fixated on their electronic devices, rarely getting outside. The internet and technology is a good thing,...

I was thinking military drones might be a recent "advancement" but apparently that has been around for some time too. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_unmanned_combat_aerial_vehicles Digital warfare sounds like it could be quite devastating, for example if one side shuts the power to a whol...
