I honestly believe that the 45th president will hasten the end of human civilization. He’s dangerous, unwise, destructive and conniving. Nothing good will come of his reign. And, yet, what hopes do I really have for worldly powers?
Can a president deliver me from death? Can a government free me from suffering? Surely, there are many a good thing that can be done by politicians and governments but, ultimately, I can’t look within samsara for salvation.
May I practice well now so that I may be of some service when the end comes.
May I not make a mockery of the Dhamma.
