What is your insight on the spirituality of freedom?

That is an interesting topic.

I think that is a larger program, within which "The spirituality of justice," and the "spirituality of liberty" run within. In the spirituality of freedom, all options are open. Those options that you close off with your mind, like maybe sleeping with your brother, are all wide open. Then the question really is a matter of what choice do you make. Everything is wide open. That is true freedom.

BTW, I run into people who claim to be Buddhist from time to time, but they always seem to subscribe to the democrats version of compassion. I think to be true to the Buddhist philosophy, you would have to be libertarian.

What do you mean by the 'democrats version of compassion.' You mean like their robin hood ways, of stealing from the rich to give to the poor. Does the Dalai lama advocate that? I would imagine he's a voluntaryist.

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.
