Did you ever wonder why the Dalai Lama is such a darling among our credentialed class and causes Hollywood movie stars to swoon in his presence? This despite a moral outlook more or less in accord with the teachings of the Catholic Church, that the western elite find so appalling? Here's why: he's one of them.
DALAI LAMA TO CHINESE STUDENTS: ‘I’M A MARXIST’
In speaking to a group of students in Minnesota last week, the Dalai Lama cleared up any uncertainty regarding his political views. “…As far as socio-political beliefs are concerned, I consider myself a Marxist,” he told the audience.
According to Religion Dispatches, one student questioned this statement, asking if this view of the world contradict the Dalai Lama’s philosophy:
The Tibetan leader answered that the Marx was not against religion or religious philosophy per se but against religious institutions that were allied, during Marx’s time, with the European ruling class.
For in the end, you see, to the elite, as long as you espouse the confiscation of property and redistribution of wealth, all your are sins forgiven.
