About 3Poisons

The Buddha taught that greed, ill will, and ignorance were at the root of suffering.  Ignorance/delusion is the common root for  greed and anger.  So here is my take on how greed, anger and ignorance are operating in our world today.  In the west, we have institutionalized these poisons and they are at the root of many of our common problems.  The military-industrial complex, worship of money, global climate change, famine, our media machine that avoids reality and feeds us endless forms of propaganda and junk.  Its all bread and circus!

Thanks to Dr. David Loy for his writings on “institutionalized” poisons in America…very illuminating!
