  1. Plato, Socrates, Diogenes among others were the intellectual and spiritual foundation of modern western philosophy. No one can argue the immense value and contribution these men have given the West and inspired our modern thinking.
    Neo-Platonist ideas inspired Jung in his search of spiritual/metaphysical causes of mental illness.
    Yet there are those who would refute these ideas and box us into one-dimensional thinking of religion of aggression and dogma and politics according to the Western Fundamentalist concept the – neo conservative.
    Thanks to the Lords of Karma these dark forces suffered a defeat in the United States. The Democrats and the left won without any serious mandate rather the people of the United States just had enough of George Bush and his neo-conservative fundamentalist nightmare.
    Now, stem cells research has renewed hope, raising the federal minimum wage from $5.15(!) to maybe the whopping $7, will have some HOPE!
    The biggest problem is still the resolution of the Iraq War that would require some blind faith and courage to finish what these neo-cons have started. This is a biggie…
    Rejoice! (but do it quietly while praying for the end of war)
