Your freedom today was secured by men that violated human rights in the past. Deal with it.

manson, it's about cultural values, indians believe it's fine to have a class of people called untouchable, americans believe that their value system is so good that it is worth imposing on other countries. and of course, india doesn't have any areas where muslims would prefer self determination to dominance by a central, hindu controlled government.

your cries of hypocrisy do little but highlight the hypocrisy within your own country, or at least the country where most indian's reside.

i would have expected a follower of shiva to have a better understanding of the duality in the nature of everything.


This post is perfect because it highlights the extreme differences of cultures. In the United States the idea of "untouchables" would only work with white supremacists towards the African American culture. It would be viewed as the sickest and most vilest of things if we ran across someone who thought the poor were being punished because of their previous lives / karma.

And yes, Pieman, it seems you understand duality better than Manson ....... especially the ignorance in calling out hypocrisy (when all are hypocrites).

For your information the Indian author of the article is an Indian Christian.
Perhaps ignorance is bliss!

The follower of Shiva he was referring to was Manson, not the author of the article. And yes, ignorance rocks... I guess?
