The Dalai-Lama stated the obvious. Of course, migrants, refugees and a lot of so-called ‘immigrants’ should go back to their home countries once the situation has settled there (the sooner the better). Here is Lana Lokteff of Red Ice TV commenting on the news. This only proves that Buddhists have the heart at the right place. There is a proverb in French that says: «Charité bien ordonnée commence par soi-même», which means that you should always provide for yourself before considering providing for others. There are thousands, millions of people in America and Europe who are desperately in need of medical care and of decent food and housing…and we are welcoming refugees by the millions? A few years ago, I started a series of articles in French under the title Le déploiement de l’axe christo-bouddhique, or in English, the deployment of the Christico-Buddhistic Axis. The idea behind that association, collaboration, alliance, is that these two religions, the two big religions of each side of the planet, are completely compatible, the same way Islam and Communism are compatible. So, if they are compatible, we should work together to fight for a better world and to deter threats to our rights and freedoms. If the association of Communism and Islam is often referred to as the Red-Green Axis, the alliance between the freedom-loving christian West and the Buddhist East could be referred to as the Blue-Orange Axis – orange for the most common color of a monk’s garment. If we don’t pull our strength together, both Christians and Buddhists are going to disappear, be massacred by either communists or Islamists. Europe for Europeans…and the East for those who agree with the Buddha! Here are the four articles in French of the series I was talking about, if you would like to take a look at them.
Look at these beautiful « rebels » from Libya. Don’t you think that they are not inspiring for the democratic life? Look at the way they present freedom of speech, democracy and all the values belonging to it… Isn’t that amazing? All this time we could have had the immense privilege of being taught and guided by these extraordinary examples of citizens exercizing their democratic rights, and we missed it! I guess it is because we, westerners, have such a poor opinions of these folks. In our wisdom, we decided to back authoritarian figures that would terrorize the people of these countries, and all this time we were wrong! Look at how they are capable of handling democratic expressions, enter into dialogue, negociate and find concrete solutions that would satisfy all parties… It is such a pity that we did’nt see that before… Anyway, that’s the kind of people the West is backing in Libya. Check also my previous posts on the Libyan mess: Ghadafi, Piggy-Back Coup, 50 Point Manifesto, Mike Baker, China’s aggressive bid, Turkish Taffy. These pictures are graphic, so brace yourselves.
