Radical Politics and Buddhism. By David Edwards.
by David Edwards
- Radical politics and buddhism.
The author builds an argument that our capitalist system is based on the three Buddhist 'poisons' of greed, hatred and ignorance. He maintains that activists need to recognize that compassion is the basis of all happiness. The author believes that the antidote to what ails the modern world is rational awarenes and unconditional kindness.
This book seeks to marry together the greatest wtings of western activists and the best of buddhist writers.
A challenging and refreshing approach. Definately food for (deep) thought.
