Yes certainly, and converse I will Gordo.
Acts to my opinion are statements most unequivocally.
Nothing wrong at all with posting such things as this. As another poster states...this is after all samsaric in nature.
No right to it at all as well.
The problem with the statement is perhaps akin to a drunk, one who has problem drinking, in the process of getting drunk, admonishing another he/she sees drinking ....to not drink as it is wrong.
The problem with such things is they reak of hypocricy. In such things in this samsaric realm, one leads to certain other things. That thing in this particular being a cheapening of speech, right truthful speech. And so we have statements leading to such things as....stated directly above.....we all suck.
Well in a sense we do being human. But when speech is so taken for granted with no admonishment at calling hypocricy what it is, when obviously seen....the conclusion comes easy...all are hypocritics after all. And from that the logical extension into such things as.....there is no real truth all is gray or shades of truthfullness and falsehood.
A current american dillema by my take, another causual effect of a spiritual malise which grips the nation called US.
All seeking perhaps the spiritual are considered as a one eyed man in the land of the blind a king(but not close to fully sighted, no depth perception)....
Spiritually the greatest we can attest to is....being indicisive or uncertain.That since all else we experience in this matter is beset with hypocracy falsehood and obvious logical inconsistancy.
So indicision grayness and inaction then become the norm and prefered behavior.
So being certain is equated with a spiritual unknowing. And being uncertain the greatest of virtues.
Well this is not so, and in this matter not all nations are like China or the US. Rare actually the numbers on our hands can be counted the nations which for one abscribe to the death penalty as a solution to crime.
Some nations are actually in many respect trying to do the right thing.
So I comment Mr Gordo, as you have indicated I may.....China the US, I can name a bunch of countries that suck. All....no not by a long shot.
The statement you are not making a statement by posting this....I firmly disagree with that contention.
Yes...I am fully aware you have not stated in a literal fashion anything.
But all is not literal it seems.
I perhaps can then post on a Buddhist forum a quote from a particular form of Buddhism that states such absurdities as Buddhists may not be gay and be Buddhist or any such thing. Simply post such a thing with no comment by me.....
and all will fully know a statement is being made....yes
by me. Though no personal comment offered. NOw if I post and then qualify with statement...well then another statement is being made.
As post is offered comment is offered as well. To qualify my statement Gordo, I state...."is the US in any position to decry anyone elses human rights record?
not is Gordo in any position to decry anyone elses human rights record.
So it is not a personal comment but a comment upon the subject at hand. And I do ask Gordo.....what pray tell are you talking about.....clarify your position if you hold one. If you agree with me then well then, we agree. I am glad to hear that. Perhaps I confuse you with my statement....what pray tell are you talking about.
To be clear I mean exactly....what is your intention with this thing. This post. I realize you are not literally talking as I am not literally praying
