: It seems to be a curious phenomenon that people immediately assume that one is a political "liberal" or leftist when an expression of interest in or adoption of Buddhism is made. Why is that?
: Does Buddhism inevitably mean approval of "Global Warming" and collectivism. To some people it seems to do so. Can only registered Democrats (in the US) be sincere Buddhists?
: I would be very interested in your thoughts and comments on what I see as this common trait of Western Buddhists.
You got to stop hanging out with hippies. Many of my Buddhist friends are Republicans: small government, big tax cuts, etc.
