American politics sinking to new lows.
This poster yesterday plastered all over Washington D.C.
Denigrating, bashing, hurting, and humiliating other people whether we like them or not is wrong.
- What happened to agreeing to disagree?
- What happened to being civil and mannered?
- What happened to "when they go low, we go high"?
Power is such a motivator.
Greed, according to the Buddhists is one of the "three poisons," along with ignorance and hate.
These lead to evil and suffering and prevent the attainment of enlightenment.
Desire and wanting something so much that you will do anything for it, thinking you deserve it, and being overconfident that you will get are a weakness of character and leadership.
Yesterday, Putin said about our election hysteria, "Is America some kind of banana republic?"
Is this really the type of darkness (and not light) to the world we want to show ourselves as.
We are continuing to go in the wrong direction and away from enlightenment and good--especially when there is so much work for us to still be done. ;-)
