Vedantic Philosophy: The Snake and the Rope
“A man walks at night along a path. He sees a poisonous snake barring his way and turns and runs in the opposite direction. As he returns along the same path in the morning, he finds a coiled rope on the ground. 2/"He realizes that in the darkness, he mistook the coiled rope as a snake and it dawns on him, in the dark it is hard to see reality as it truly is. In the light of day, we see more clearly.
Our perception of reality can be clouded by darkness, which is ignorance to reality.

@BBCPropaganda @AngelWarrior321 Yeah I’m half-Asian and proud to be so. I’m half of what you will never be. So you’re the non-Asian British “expert” on Asian people? Got it 👍😉. I’m not fully Asian tho, so I’m not a “card carrying member” of any “Asian community”, but I never aspired to be. When you’re half-n- @BBCPropaganda @AngelWarrior321 half you’re acutely aware that you don’t belong to any “people”. You become attracted to people (race, nationality…) w/ strong social cohesion and identity. Going to high school in Hawaii half my friends were American Japanese & they were cool.

Obama Is Wrong When He Says We're Not a Judeo-Christian Nation usnews.com/opinion/articl….
“On April 6, 2009, President Obama, speaking halfway across the world in Turkey, effectively made a shocking proclamation: the United States did not consider itself a Judeo-Christian nation.” 2/““Although, as I mentioned, we have a very large Christian population, we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation," [Obama] said.”
I wouldn’t disagree with Obama, but IMO it’s also correct to say that the US was founded on Judeo-Christian principles.

I've noticed a similarity w/ South Korea's position on reunification and US Democrat's perception of America.

Even progressive Moon Jae In said that socialism wasn't in ROK's national interest. Socialism, then, was incompatible to ROK's view of One Korea and had to be all blue. 2/Despite Biden quoting Lincoln saying his "whole heart" was into establishing "unity" (an obvious lie as his referring to Trump's presidency as a "plague" shows), the Democrats have such disdain for Trump voters ("basket of deplorable" - Clinton) that Joe Biden is POTUS de jure

Reagan makes a case for the unborn. We have to answer these questions:
* Do the unborn have rights? And if so, when are their rights protected?
* When does a mother’s health and rights supersede those of an unborn?
The starting point to resolving this is to ask: When does life begin? Conventional wisdom says “at conception”. Altho this is biologically and generically true our human experience begins with the mother – baby relationship established through the umbilical connection. Everyone

@JaccoZed It’s safe to say that no one outside DPRK’s top leadership knows for sure whether “unifying the peninsula on Pyongyang’s terms” is just aspirational or if there’s in fact “detailed programmatic specificity”. Maybe only Kim Jong Un & his family knows (which includes Kim Yo Jong). @JaccoZed We can only speculate. I get the sense tho that many just act from belief, like the Church did when it prosecuted Galileo for his heliocentric theory. IMO there should be trilateral dialogue b/t the US, DPRK & South Korea where all sides ask questions and give answers in the

@dpinkston Can you admit that “NK wants to unify the peninsula on Pyongyang's terms” is just theory? Or is it engraved in stone somewhere? You can’t assume DPRK’s motive for invading S Korea still holds today. Times have changed. This evidence disputes that claim.
@dpinkston 2/The fact that Article 9 of DPRK’s constitution says: The DPRK “shall strive to achieve the complete victory of socialism in the northern half of Korea” obliterates yours & others assertions that DPRK’s main objective is to re-unify the Korean Peninsula under socialism by force.
