The Ides of March

Ides of March

Tuesday, March 15th is the Ides of March. In America, it is also “Super Tuesday II”, the day in which multiple states will be conducting primaries for the Republican and Democratic parties. Voters in Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio will be going to the polls to elect their parties’ nominees for President of the United States. Most analysts are in agreement that tomorrow will serve to winnow the field of candidates considerably, perhaps even revealing conclusively who the likely nominees will be. At a minimum, Marco Rubio and John Kasich are expected to abandon the race. On March 16th, we will be providing our own analysis of the primary results from a Vedic perspective.


Neither Left Nor Right!

Sri Acharyaji – Author of ‘The Dharma Manifesto’ – in New York City

“The terms ‘left-wing’ and ‘right-wing’ have historically signified no more than an artificial political dichotomy imposed upon the public by a corrupt and controlling establishment. Anyone thinking in such contrived terms today is living in the past. The only real dichotomy of any valuable relevance in today’s political realm is not Left versus Right, but the People versus the Establishment.”

– Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya


“Little Marco”

Little MarcoFirst term Senator from Florida, Marco Rubio, has shown himself over the years to be an inexperienced young man with little to no ability to even serve as a capable Senator. He has so far missed 35% of votes in the Senate, the highest record of any sitting Senator. Why anyone ever conceived that this young man was even close to capable of being the Commander and Chief of our nation is beyond comprehension. Now Rubio is anywhere from 8% to 20% behind in the polls in his own state of Florida! The time has come for Marco Rubio to drop out of the race and instead work on salvaging what is left of his political career – if he can even do that.


Ted Cruz: Evangelical Fanatic

cruz-evangelical“I really hope we don’t see Yoga on this stage.” – Senator Ted Cruz (Republican debate, 3/3/16, 9:38 PM EST)

Ted Cruz is a religious fanatic who most likely truly does see Yoga as the “work of the Devil” and “a dangerous emptying of the mind”, as so many Christian fundamentalists do. If he were to ever be elected President, he would probably begin the process of the systematic suppression of all non-Judeo-Christian religions. He should not be allowed to ever come within a thousand miles of the White House. His Presidential run should be defeated, and he should not be re-elected to the Senate.


February 23rd Republican/Democrat Primary Analysis

Pres_CandidatesThe Dharma Nation Movement has not endorsed a candidate for President of the United States, and will not be doing so in the present Presidential race. The following, however, is our analysis of the race thus far.

With his latest massive crushing of his opponents in the Nevada caucuses last night (Trump 46%, Rubio 24%, Cruz 21%), it is clear that Trump will be the Republican nominee.

If Rubio at any point during the present race ever even had a chance to overcome the front-runner, which he does not, he is correctly perceived as being too young, too inexperienced and too inconsistent in his positions to truly be taken seriously by the majority of voters.

From a Dharma perspective, a potential Cruz presidency is a disaster just waiting to happen. A Christian Evangelical fanatic, Cruz is by far the most dangerous candidate for any voter who does not spend the majority of their time dreaming of the eventual rapture!

A potential Cruz administration would see all non-Christian religions actively suppressed in America. His campaign is all but over at this point, despite “winning” Iowa via dirty tricks, which has consistently gone with losing Evangelical candidates every caucus cycle (Huckabee in 2008, Santorum in 2012), thus being a bell-weather of nothing.

We say, good riddance to the Cruz campaign.

On the Democratic side, on the other hand, it is still a very close race between Clinton and Sanders. Of the two, Sanders is the only honest and reputable candidate, Clinton representing Washington corruption and cronyism personified. Indeed, that Hillary Clinton is not sitting this primary out in a prison somewhere is a testament to the corruption of the present justice system in America.

Unlike the Republican side, the Democratic Nevada caucuses was extremely close for Clinton and Sanders. (52% Clinton, 46% Sanders) Sanders won New Hampshire by a landslide; and all by won Iowa, but for the dirty tricks and corruption of the process by the criminal Clinton campaign. In an honest primary race between Clinton vs. Sanders, Sanders would win the nomination by a landslide!

Next on the primary schedule is Super Tuesday, which will be on March 1st, and in which 12 states will be having primaries, including the crucial states of Texas and Virginia. More analysis then!

Aum Shanti Aum


THE DHARMA MANIFESTO

the-dharma-manifesto-frontcover-web

 

The Dharma Manifesto is a call to action for those who seek a form of social and political action that has a firm spiritual foundation, but which also challenges the prevailing social and religious order in the postmodern West. It does not merely offer criticism – it is also a blueprint for how a national community founded upon Dharmic principles could operate in the twenty-first century. Its author defines the term “Dharma,” which in the ancient Sanskrit language means “Natural Law,” in an unconventional way. For those who embrace Dharma Nationalism, Dharma is predicated upon the pressing need for the organic and munificent re-sacralization of culture and of all human endeavor, as well as the manifestation of the highest potentials attainable by every individual in society in accordance with transcendental principles. Thus, Dharma does not only refer to traditions with which it is usually associated such as Hinduism and Buddhism, but also to the Taoist, Confucian, Zoroastrian, Native American, and European pagan traditions, all of which, this book holds, share a common, basic worldview. This book is therefore a resource for those who want to carry out both an inward, contemplative revolution within themselves as well an outer, social revolution in the world around them, in harmony with one another. It is intended to serve as a systematic program signaling the beginning of a what will hopefully be a new era in humanity’s eternal yearning for meaningful freedom and happiness.

Atheism & Moral Cowardice

atheismSanatana Dharma (The Eternal Natural Way) begins with the natural supposition that God not only exists, but is the basis of all reality. Atheism is a pseudo ideology predicated upon a need to justify moral and existential cowardice. “If there is no God,” the atheist hopes, “then I am accountable to nothing but my own whims.” Sanatana Dharma offers a path free from such amoral self-delusion!


Taxation is Theft

The America Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.”

– Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859)

Taxation is theft.   This one of the foundational political mantras of the Dharma Nation Movement.

Taxation is TheftGovernment produces no wealth. It only confiscates wealth in the form of taxation from those who do actually create wealth, and redistributes that wealth to those who did not earn it. Moreover, government officials and corrupt politicians engage in such taxation theft, not for the actual betterment of the poor, but to buy the votes of the poor. Writing about the duplicitous nature of such corrupt politicians, Prabhupada stated the following:

“Tax exaction is not meant for the sense gratification of the so-called administrative heads. Tax revenues should be distributed to the citizens in times of need, during emergencies such as famine or flood. Tax revenues should never be distributed amongst governmental servants in the form of high salaries and various other allowances. In Kali-yuga, however, the position of the citizens is very horrible because taxes are exacted in so many forms and are spent for the personal comforts of the administrators.”

(Srimad Bhagavatam 4.16.6, Purport)

Wealth belongs exclusively in the hands of those individuals, families and businesses who are directly responsible for its creation, and is not to be forcefully redistributed by the government to those who did not create it – even in the name of poverty reduction.[1] Taxation must be recognized as a necessarily unavoidable evil that all governments must seek to reduce to the absolute minimum degree that is necessary to provide basic and foundational services to the people.

A Dharma Nationalist government would call for the abolition of the Internal Revenue Service, abandonment of the current complicated, confusing and inequitable tax system, the elimination of the progressive income tax, and a rapid transition to a more fair, flat tax system. Very simply, all households with a combined family income above the poverty level (income reflecting the year 2012) will pay a simple and fair 10% maximal tax rate, and when an atmosphere of economic prosperity warrants it, less than 10%. Whether a family makes $50,000 per year, $500,000 per year, or $5,000,000 per year, the yearly tax rate will never exceed 10% of that family’s total earnings. The property tax, marriage penalty tax, death tax, and inheritance tax will be abolished outright

 



[1] Poverty reduction is more effectively achieved via the volunteer work of private charitable organizations, and not through the inefficient and corrupt programs of government bureaucracies.

295847_275904639097444_275683962452845_888162_128040056_nOur institutions ceased a very long ago to represent the interests of the people. Our media, government bureaucracies, schools and academic institutions have become corrupt enemies of the people’s interest. There is a much better way to organize government in order to ensure justice, prosperity and social sanity. The Dharma Manifesto explains how. Read it today!
