Carol English replied to David Brazier's discussion IMPOSING VALUES in the group MEN & WOMEN
"Thanks Nati. I agree. I don't think it is a question of taking sides but more one of seeing the upside and downside to idealism. A dharma teacher of mine once pointed out to me that idealism is often motivated by hate more than by love. It can…"
