There are two kinds of pride: Positive Pride and Negative Pride.
Positive pride is self-esteem or evaluating and appreciating yourself accurately.
Negative pride is exaggerating your own value and being delusional about yourself.
None of us have control about how we are born. So it would be ignorant to believe that the color of our skin makes us superior to others. The only Meritocracy that is rational and not tyrannical or arbitrary is a Meritocracy of Reason and Results. While this Meritocracy does create disparate impact, their is no flaw in the system because that disparity isn’t created by a bias but by the strengths and weaknesses of the individual.
The solution is to create a level playing field, write Laws that punish behavior that is undesirable and reward behavior that is desirable (Laws that are sustainable and lead to the success of the Society). Appoint Authorities (Judges…
According to Heinrich Zimmer, Joseph Campbell’s mentor, Buddhism is a sub sect of Shaivism. And I agree with him. The first Buddha came from India and realizing that people were not going to be able to receive the full teaching of No Self he prepared them for later. It wasn’t until Nagarjuna buddha came who was also from India that the full teaching of no self was delivered hundreds of years later.
Their are so many fruity spiritualists that think that being merciful and charitable and pleasant is the concept behind no self. It actually has to do with not identifying with the ego and the emotional intelligence. This is the exact opposite of what he taught and the reason he didn’t want to allow women to be monks.
The Buddha’s Prediction
Ananda sat at the Buddha’s side and argued on behalf of the ordination of women. The Buddha continued…
True story, my former room-mate and one of the women who’s virginity I took, had sex with Stan Lee. Robert Deniro flirted with her on a regular basis. Robert Deniro only hangs out with black women because it makes him feel cool about himself. I suggested that Johnny Depp should be Doctor Strange before he turned into a drug addled fool. Johnny Depp also failed his audition.
As a psycho-linguist it was etched in my memory when Hillary Clinton made this statement during the 2016 election campaign. Surprisingly, nobody else noticed this Dog Whistle. When Barack Obama mentioned “Black Twitter” nobody else noticed that either. But there were people that noticed because the comment was pitched at a frequency the rest of us couldn’t understand, but I could…
The Clinton Crime Foundation and the Democrat Thought Plantation want to employ the criminals through triple blinds so that they have PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY. This is why they don’t state their solutions openly they only mock & criticize their opponents. If they get lucky and are voted into office they fully intend to make agreements behind closed doors.
I am not talking about the Divine Right of Kings, I am talking about the Right to Rule as envisioned by our Founding Fathers who were against Tyranny in any form. In our constitution it wasn’t a king who was imbued with Divine Authority it was the American Citizenry. The Body of Law is created by the Citizenry and it is the responsibility of the Politician to enforce the Law that the Citizen has voted on. They are not kings, they don’t get to create Law by Fiat or refuse to enforce Law they don’t like. Through our Social Contract we can we are all bound by the Authority of Reason.
Politicians in Sanctuary states are not only refusing to enforce the Law they are inviting people into the country who aren’t Citizens and catering to them while neglecting the American People. This isn’t Democracy it is a…
Many people are addicted to emotions. Many people are controlled by their emotions instead of controlling their emotions. This is the difference between an animal and a human. Humans control their emotions. Some animals are wiser than men.
Emotions function like a carnival mirror. They distort, shade, and color how we see things around us. They distract us, they obsess us, they lie to us. Science is done analytically not emotionally. If you are doing science emotionally you are doing bad science. A peer reviewed paper was recently published which blamed the penis for global warming. The only problem is that article was written as a hoax in order to expose a bias in the scientific community. (the Sokal Hoax)
The Ataraxia of the ancient Greeks, Zen, and Nirvana are all the same thing. They aren’t some deluded fruity spiritualism, they are a coming to rest in the faculty of…
