<< But Louis did not say that we should help others. He said
that we should feed the starving and redistribute the wealth
(which was distributed karmically in the first place). This
is an example of how to help people the wrong way. >>
If you are going to paraphrase me please do not distort my meaning. I ask you
to review my original response to your notion that overpopulation and karmic
justice are at fault here and that there is nothing we should do about it. It
has become increasingly clear that distortion, subtle and extreme, is what
you do as a matter of course. I am growing weary of it. Here is your
statement which I was responding to:
In a message dated 5/4/99 1:46:21 PM Eastern Daylight Time,
<< The reason they are underfed is because they
are overpopulated. There are more people living
on Earth today than all the dead people throughout
our history added together. >
Both your observations are pure speculation. The first part, is the
unthinking rhetoric of vested interest groups. The last, unfounded guesswork.
I do not know of ANY scientific study which backs that up with evidence.
Your past responses to others on this list are beginning to appear as
argument for argument's sake. I have not found many of your comments
theosophically sound or well thought out. Your latest reply to Dallas "is
observation such a bad thing" is a case in point. A while back you invited me
to use the delete button if I did not find your input interesting or of
value. Thank you for the suggestion. I accept.
