“One of the things we’ve all met is the accusation that we are strident or arrogant or vitriolic or shrill. What do we think about that?" @RichardDawkins @danieldennett, @SamHarrisOrg and Christopher Hitchens conversation is now available as a book:
We’re saddled with biological drives to accumulate and multiply.
Culture is a chance to evolve past all that and create poetry instead.
But into that cultural space we’ve plugged a money mechanism built on the same impulse.
And it's skewing the evolution of our species.

Granting Sovereignty to the States to manage their own affairs, including Foreign affairs, is the most appropriate solution to all problems the country is facing today. People must prepare for this futuristic measure by abdicating the grand narrative of an unusually large nation.

Vivekananda was a product of his time. He was very much influenced by Christian missionaries and that shows in his writings. He deserves our respect but some of his writings should be taken with a pinch of salt. Shri Aurobindo had better clarity in his thoughts.
vivekananda is a pundit with limited knowledge . Aurobindo is a gnani with unlimited knowledge and wisdom
