has anyone ever thought that if communism had disregarded their views on religion and strictly enforced buddhism, that it might actually work? Real buddhism is about living a completely well moralled life. Basically take the 10 commandments and cutout any religion. If the ideas were strictly enforced and people were required to meditate on a daily basis, i wouldn't even be able to imagine how peaceful and possibly productive a country would be produced. the reason i bring this up is because i did a 10 day meditation course where i didn't speak, read, or write () and realized how peaceful people can be through meditation and also realized that although it may too idealistic to believe what i'm talking about, buddhism and buddhists today disprove that such beliefs aren't impossible. (in my opinion at least) any thoughts?
