What if every person on the planet meditated peacefully 20 minutes, twice a day, for a whole month?
I am reading a history of the Balkans, and it reinforces my notion that the entirety of human history is a pychopathic circular firing squad: wars, genocides, mass murders, tyrannical subjegation, etc etc. Hitler, Pol Pot, Milosevic, Pinochet, Mussolini, Idi Amin, Genghis Kahn…these guys are the tip of the iceburg. We now come to a point when our evolutionarily ingrained beastial savagery is a hindrance to human progress. What is progress? we’ll know it when we see it. But its happening too slowly because atrocious shit is still going on: Sudan, the Congo, Al Qaeda, etc etc. So we need something to speed up the process. Meditation? Mario Kart? Zoloft in the water supply? One big world-wide secret santa gift exchange…..OK, maybe linking it to Christianity isn’t the best idea.
