Deepak Chopra on Rush Limbaugh
Interesting piece by Deepak Chopra. I am sure Rush will return the favor if he hasn’t already.
I know people who listen to Limbaugh every morning. They don’t believe a word he says. They deplore his rhetorical sins. They detect the whiff of hypocrisy. Basically, they tune in out of sheer incredulity.
Rush Limbaugh is dead weight when it comes to finding a solution to anything. Like Sarah Palin, his spiritual bride, he lurks in the shadow of the human psyche, expressing the dark anger, resentment, jealousy, and vindictiveness that society can never escape. And yet, the next time you tune into Limbaugh’s censorious circus of insensitive scurrility, give him a kind thought. As far back as Mark Twain, the American character has been ornery. We secretly love rascals, bank robbers, tricksters, swindlers, hell raisers, and outlaws.
I am sure Rush will return the favor if he hasn’t already. Dr. Chopra’s heated exchange with the WSJ after the Mumbai riots was a response to criticism against him, but this time around, he seems to have made the first move. In these difficult times I guess spiritual gurus can’t help but reach out!
