Guantánamo’s Surreal Prison Landscape

“That’s a room in Camp 5 which holds prisoners in single cells.If a prisoner follows the rules, he may have an opportunity to sit in this dirty recliner with one leg shackled to the floor and watch DVD’s or soccer matches while being watched through a one-way mirror.”

 “I wanted to look at this all-American place and ask if this is who we want to be,” Ms. Cornwall said. “Is America at its best in this place?” Main&contentCollection=Multimedia&action=Click&pgtype=Blogs&region=Body&_r=0#
Einstein on Buddhism

“A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe’; a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely but striving for such achievement is, in itself, a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: It transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural and spiritual; and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.”
“If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism.” (Albert Einstein)
