BTW, none of those are buddhas teachings, more like socialist, social comment than anything.

Nothing like a little bad news, whether personal or global, to excite attention to the obvious. And since "Buddhism" encourages attention to the obvious, I guess "Buddhism" gets a boost in hard times.

Buddhism is always important. Buddhism is not any more or less important today than it was 100 years ago or 100 kalpas ago. People still stuck in samsara need Buddhism, and Buddhas need to teach Buddhism.

Develop kindness and calmness. Then develop wisdom. It's that simple.

Live in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.
