March 19, 2008 — Just do some intensive research yourself:
Michael Parenti is an American political scientist, historian, and author. He received his Ph.D. in political science from Yale University. His works have been translated into at least eighteen languages. His book, “The Assassination of Julius Caesar, A People’s History of Ancient Rome”, was selected as a Book of the Year for 2004 by Online Review of Books and Current Affairs.
“He (the Dalai Lama) headed a social system that was exploitative, terribly terribly unequal, and terribly brutal.”
“You had a privileged priest class, living in utter luxury and opulence, and you had a mass of serfs living in utter misery.”
“His holiness would tell you that he must return to power for the good of his people. In this case “good” may translate to his people living in squalour and his government condoning slavery.”
“As this State Department internal memo reveals, the Dalai Lama at one time took $180,000 a year from the CIA for his living expenses. and $1.5 million a year from the spy agency to finance Tibetan guerrilla operations against the Chinese, which included, running a covert guerrilla training center in Colorado.”
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: WHY SHOULD MONKS LIVE IN UTTER LUXURY AND OPULENCE
AND THE SERFS (SLAVES) LIVE IN UTTER MISERY?
WHAT HAPPENED TO BUDDHA’S TEACHINGS?
ANSWER: CROOKED MONKS SEIZED POWER AND WEALTH.
THEY ARE NOT BUDDHISTS NOR MONKS ANYMORE.
JUST WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING!
