In Defense of Nagarjuna
Buddhism in Myanmar has taken a dramatic turn downwards.
Who has ever seen such a performance? Outrageous. An act of hate and terrorism unlike anything the history of Buddhism had ever seen.

REMEMBERING ROHINGYA GENOCIDE
On this day August 25, 2017, the Myanmar brute military forces, police, state-sponsored non-state actors, and Buddhist Rakhine vigilantes restarted premeditated genocidal purges against our innocent people carrying out mass murder, widespread rape, systematic arson attacks, destruction of homes, and villages.
Religion carries two sorts of people in two entirely opposite directions: the mild and gentle people it carries towards mercy and justice; the persecuting people it carries into fiendish sadistic cruelty. Mind you, though this may seem to justify the eighteenth-century Age of Reason in its contention that religion is nothing but an organized, gigantic fraud and a curse to the human race, nothing could be farther from the truth. It possesses these two aspects, the evil one of the two appealing to people capable of naïve hatred; but what is actually happening is that when you get natures stirred to their depths over questions which they feel to be overwhelmingly vital, you get the bad stirred up in them as well as the good; the mud as well as the water. It doesn't seem to matter much which sect you have, for both types occur in all sects.... -Alfred North Whitehead
