"You invited me to winter alone at Amida France when we were assembled at Sahishnus home for the 2012 order meeting. The primitism was desirable but the isolation seemed unimaginable. In the last year or two I have tended far more towards solitude.…"

Robert McCarthy replied to Dharmavidya's discussion SOME PESSIMISTIC THOUGHTS in WAR & PEACE
"My sense is that this situation is realistic and not pessimistic. It does matter because while I so very often am labelled a pessimist that is simply another mechanism of denial. Though it seems that reality is now meeting the most pessimistic view…"

Robert McCarthy replied to Dharmavidya's discussion REFLECTIONS ON OUR INABILITY TO CHANGE in WAR & PEACE
"Acceptance of the accuracy of your words is contingent upon each of us understanding we are all complicit in this outcome. Instead we become held in anger and blaming as we begin to see the reality of the situation. We do little to resist. So much…"

Robert McCarthy replied to Dharmavidya's discussion TRICK OR TRUMP in WAR & PEACE
"Remembering back, Trump tied two promises together. He will build a wall and Mexico will pay for it. So this current dispute over his demand the us pays for the wall has no legitimacy,.   Not that Trump himself has any issues regarding not having…"

"Thanks Matt. I have been noticing the group extinction rebellion and I feel very pleased to see its appearance.

"All I can do David is reach out to people, very much including yourself. I lack depth in history, geography, global potitics and especially psychology and Buddhism. What I bring to the table is a lifelong distrust of elite government, of…"

Dharmavidya replied to Robert McCarthy's discussion Shunyata in QUESTIONS IN THE SAND
"It might well do so. To avoid doing so humans have to either stop expanding their domain (and even diminish it somewhat) or find somewhere other than planet earth to do so - neither of which seem terribly likely in the immediately foreseeable future."

Robert McCarthy replied to Dharmavidya's discussion OLD OLD QUESTIONS in BUDDHISM
"Thanks David. Apologies for the tone of my reply.  This whole side you write of is too much of a raw nerve for me to keep it together well. I went to a rally regarding factory farming last night and was taken aback by the militancy with aggressive…"
