Buddhists, Bicycles, and Pot Smokers (Green Goes Rotten)

001 002 003

Reading the New York Times on Friday, trying to get my mind around this one –Buddhist lynch mobs. That one’s out of Myanmar. And then there’s the story about marijuana growers despoiling forests in northern California, and bikes clogging up the city in Amsterdam. What’s going on? All that you thought was good is bad, what’s green is rotten. I’m not sure if this is what Nietzsche meant by the transvaluation of values.
