    Be careful. The goal of Buddhism is indifference to life. How can you build your Marxist utopia, and practice a religion that promotes indifference to life?

    Somehow Beck became an inadvertent tool of the Left, by so miserably representing the Right. His is a truly tragic story. He should never have gone near TV.

    The goal of Buddhism is liberation from the suffering of life and ultimately liberation in Nirvana. I've found the teaching of Buddhism to be very helpful in my life and has helped me with a lot of personal problems. On to your question though, I don't think it promotes indifference to life so much as non-clinging. It's fine to be concerned about issues and injustice, the problem is when you become obsessed with them and they become your whole life. To my credit the Dali Lama says he is a Marxist though not a Leninist.

    I like your tendency to not go to extremes. That's reflective of Trotsky himself, actually. In the beginning, he was more of a Menshevik ('go-slow' approach to Communism), but decided to side with Lenin, the Bolshevik (the fast, violent, urban-centered approach). Later, of course, he abandoned Madman Stalin.

    Because Beck is completely nuts. If you want to be taken seriously you need to at least have some claim to sanity and legitimately. Take Bill O'Riely for instance. While he is no doubt biased he is a lot more credible than Beck or a lot of other right-wing media types, because he stays away from controversy for the sake of controversy. He also let's people of opposing view come on his show and will actually debate him, that helps him a lot. I still don't agree with him at all, but if I had to trust one I'd trust him before Beck.

    Bill got in a lot of trouble for sexual harassment, so I wouldn't trust him at all... He is probably a major asshole with ego problems and thinks women should worship him.

    Oh I don't doubt any of that, I'm just saying if I was forced to pick between the two of them to trust on an issue I'd pick Bill even though he isn't trustworthy at all himself. I mean who can forget his "tide goes tide goes out. Can't explain that." Okay so maybe I was wrong.

    I knew what you meant. But since I am a female, I'd probably pick Beck to sit down and talk with because I don't get the same feeling from him. I know he is married and tries to present himself like a Christian and they aren't supposed to cheat on their wives. I would probably vomit if Bill O Reilly hit on me. Plus when he screams, his face looks like he is having a stroke and I think he probably sprays spit.
