ah yes

cringe
The self loathes suffering and loves the causes of suffering. It stupidly wages war in the name of peace. It wishes for enlightenment but detests the path to enlightenment. It wishes to work as a socialist but live as a capitalist. When the self feels lonely, it desires friendship. Its possessiveness of those it loves manifests in passion that can lead to aggression. Its supposed enemies—such as spiritual paths designed to conquer the ego — are often corrupted and recruited as the self’s ally.

lol, yes. It actually did seem funny the 4th time I watched it, though. Not sure why I watched it 4 times, but I think I just wanted to study the Dalai Lama's face.
