Arundhati Roy “The greater good” “We don`t need to be grateful to the state for permitting us to protest. We can thank ourselves that it is we who have insisted on these rights. It is we who have refused to surrender them.”
Dali Lama,said at the Canberra Press Club.
“SOMETIMES TOO MUCH POLITE SPOILS OTHER PEOPLE”
He was referring to what China was doing in Tibet.
I call the Queensland Police “FASCIST” because of what they have been doing to me. I got nowhere being polite. Fascist thinking before World War 2 belongs to a lot of people. Italy under Mussolini,Spain under Franco,Germany under Hitler. Fascist thinking does not mean that they believe in burning people in gas chambers. It does mean they believe in authoritarian and totalitarian thinking much like the Police in Capalaba where I live.
Dali Lama At another occasion at the Press Club when asked the “meaning of life” point blank by a member of the audience, he answered,
“BE HAPPY and TRY TO BE USEFUL”
I think he`s spot on in the meaning of life.
As an Atheist I think;
RELIGION IS SIMPLY A SET OF OPINIONS-NO SET OF OPINIONS SHOULD RECEIVE PRIVILEGE OF IMMUNITY FROM INSULT.
