A Buddhist – whether monastic or lay – is a true revolutionary committed to uprooting the basis of deluded society in the mind, body and environment. This pragmatic Buddhist approach parallels the Scientific Socialism of Marxist-Engelism and Marxist-Leninism – and Buddhists are advised to study these teachings in all their manifestations (including Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong) as an important step in transforming the modern world for the better.
The foreigners had even once enjoyed the special privileges of paying one hundred US dollars as compensation for killing a donkey, eight dollars for killing a man. They had not been liable for trial by Chinese courts if they raped a Chinese woman.
Due to China’s economic and cultural investment in Kenya, the Kenyan government’s position is that of official good ties and close relations between the two countries.

It is interesting to see that with the tragic loss of the Russian Airliner recently (with the death of all on board), the Western European response was one of racism and disdain for Russia and the Russian victims. This callous response must be added to the continuous ignoring of deaths in Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, the Ukraine and elsewhere in the world, and the overt support the Western Europeans powers are currently granting to far-right political and religiously inspired regimes such as the neo-Nazis in the Ukraine, the Zionists in Israel and the Islamo-fascists in Saudi Arabia. The rhetoric from modern Germany in the European Union is particularly disturbing, as its call for resistance against foreign influence to preserve European values, and pronouncements by the German leader Angela Merkel that multiculturalism has ‘failed’, all sound disturbingly similar to the rhetoric of Nazi Germany in the 1930’s.
