Tea Room / What do you use the internet for?
« on: October 11, 2020, 11:58:43 PM »
I mostly just ask this out of curiosity...using the internet I've always had to be really careful about it to make it a pleasant  experience.

The biggest problem that i've had is using it to compensate for talking to people in real life...it often feels more like an addictive drug in this way, sometimes it bites me in the ass. Yet I enjoy the internet overall for research and entertainment...there are big discussions being had about how social media is an issue, for me i'm personally just happier without that type of thing.

Danger Zone / Do buddhists talk to much about politics now?

Just a question, i've seen articles in tricycle where i feel the writer carelessly uses these really broad politicized terms in a sloppy manner, this isn't so much about that specific author as a creeping feeling i've had that this has been a trend as of the past decade...but of course i need a little comparison to she light on the issue.

Where are the places a serious buddhist should and shoudn't go when they talk about the affairs of the world? Is there even anything unique about the current situation, or is it just an event in the wheel of samsara.
