[color= var(--yt-spec-text-primary)]Rabbi Yosef Tzvi ben Porat gives a very honest speech about the Jews. This speech is followed by a wonderful excerpt from Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf.

Also, the consider typical bullshit of "oh just consider my sentence" instead of considering the agenda that I set, how I framed the topic, the things I chose to talk about, the words I chose to use. This, Exactly This, is the putrid corruption of modern society. But usually we don't notice becuase the lies are so carefully practiced.
Some things are worth standing up for. (Edit: sorry if I lost my skilful means there!)
T:I apologize for letting your cat out of the bag, Nicky. I am habituated to sniff out gaping blind spots and zealots and can't help myself. To answer your question (I think was directed at me..?) - no, I'm not Jewish, though I wouldn't have a problem with it; I'm just an antagonist. I am blessed by my ancestors' kamma to have had a fortunate birth. I appreciate the information you share specifically interpreting the fundamental words of the Buddha - or at least as close to it as we can get in modern times. I dislike your lack of compassion. Hey, are you related to 9thAI?
Anyway - I'm sorry for outing you on the forum and making you unleash all sorts of weirdness. I was being intentionally antagonistic to do it, but now that I have, I regret it. I can see that simply reading the dharma obsessively and with zeal is insufficient and I will continue to strive mightily in my sitting practice.
It's good to appear nice. People underestimate you and let their guard down.
Which of course is not a problem if THEY are nice. Or at least appear so.
EDIT: P.S. Also not Jewish, not that it matters at all.
well, all nations will eventually stream up the hill to Zion, as the saints go marching in. But I will vouch for you. Meet me at the back of the line.
The Dharma Overground is a resource for the support of practices that actually lead to beneficial, fundamental mental, perceptual and emotional transformations. It is a place where everything related to the support of practice may flourish, including where to go on retreats, what techniques may lead to what, an in depth look at the maps of possible states and stages, discussions about how to determine what experience was what, and in general anything that has to do with actually practicing rather than what typically occurs in, for example, standard meditation circles and forums. Here you will find a robust and variable community of people with a wide range of experience levels, perspectives and interests, though all loosely bound by the same basic principles of empowering, helpful, engaged knowledge and exploration of the possibilities of the mind and how it may be modified to reduce suffering and enhance wisdom.
In general our basic principles and attitudes favor:
The Moderators (contact info there) will warn and, as a second step ban posters who are absolutely not willing to respect these rules.
When in doubt, ask, "Is this helpful and conducive to clarity, wisdom, and the alleviation of suffering?"
