We aren't Canada and Australia. There is no reason why we can't use to our mutual benefits.

, rather than electing a bully who promises to take the rights away from the opposing side.

That's what Trump, Sessions, Bannon, Ryan are. They are bullies, elected by masses of weaker bullies. The same went for Obama, Emmanuel, Holder, and Clinton. Just bullies elected by bullies.....

QFT!
Well said!

But don't let the calling of people 'bullies' draw you into the same cycle of name-calling/dehumanizing categorization/'cleansing'...!
Even bullies need/are worthy of Love! *__-

(But I can easily see your Perspective!)




You're right. Its best not to fall into their game. I just want people to learn from our past mistakes.

Which brings us to a whole different discussion;
If it really were possible to 'learn from our past 'mistakes', why is the world as it is?
Surely there have been sufficient 'past mistakes' (if there really is such a thing as a 'mistake', or 'accident', or 'luck'...) from which to have learned... that we should be Omniscient, by now! *__-
Yet, here we are in a very 'dark' time of human history, and getting darker.
If we've learned anything from history, it's that we do not 'learn' from history!

The 'change' (of Heart) must come from .. 'within'!
Reflect the Light/Love, be the mirror!
(As Jesus taught. As Buddha taught. As Laotse taught...)

Bro, I like the way you think. I'm Mahayana Buddhist but not super awesome at it. Lol.
OP is right but your perspective is enlightened.

We go through cycles of light and darkness, but there are always a select few who learn from the past and lead a larger group out of the darkness. So I both agree and disagree with you.

I'm not sure that they 'learned' anything, but that who and what they are, at the moment, is sufficiently 'evolved' to be unconditional Love/Enlightenment (and 'shine that Light' through no 'choice'/effort of their own).
'Learning' relates to ego/thought.
We're always gaining Knowledge (learning?).
It is thought/ego that obscures unconditional Love!
You are assuming that the Light, that Enlightenment, can be 'learned', a natural assumption...
To pass through the door at the bottom of the rabbit hole, though, all must be abandoned, even 'learning/thought'! *__-

That's why they call it a 'practice'! *__-
