In this regard, the path of the Buddha is deeply ‘political’, and those who practice it in support of social systems that run counter to Buddhist ethics, are in reality inverting and denying the true revolutionary spirit of the Buddha.
The bourgeoisie misrepresent Buddhism and represent the very class privilege that the Buddha thoroughly rejected and transcended. This is because the bourgeoisie are ‘attached’ to an image of being ‘Buddhist’ that has no bearing in reality. For a bourgeois to truly become a Buddhist, he or she must fully reject the very ignorance that has historically given them their privileged life-style at the expense of the working class.
It is clear that Chris White wishes to subsume secular science into the teachings of Christian theology and in so doing end secular science serving as an ‘independent’ threat (and corrective) to the illogical claims of Christian theology. This agenda can be clearly seen in his three hour debunking of Ancient Aliens – where the last thirty minutes or so are taken-up establishing a pro-Christian theological stance that is in structure more logically bizarre than the pseudo-science he had previously been debunking.
