The Compassionate Revolution
Radical Politics and BuddhismeBook - 1998
In his first book Free to be Human, David Edwards showed how the mass media, controlled by powerful business interests, distort our understanding of many personal, ethical and spiritual issues, ensuring that we remain passive, conformist and uninformed and willing to accept the irrational values of corporate consumerism. In The Compassionate Revolution he builds on the argument, showing how our capitalist system is dependent on the promotion of the three Buddhist Poisons; of Greed, Hatred and Ignorance: Greed for profit at any cost in terms of human suffering; hatred of foreign obstacles to profit; and ignorance of the cosy link between Western corporations and Third World dictators, helping to protect Western profits.
