When Deepak Chopra says “Do Not Panic”, you should be concerned.

We live in interesting times

If you happen to be shit out of luck, it’s “cyclic.” That’s what the spiritual teacher to celebrities and the big corporate C-suite, Deepak Chopra, is saying.

I am reminded of an ancient warning. Beware of false prophets and teachers.

I’m also reminded of an award-winning and NYT Best Selling novel by Aravind Adiga, an Indian. The White Tiger. Balram Halwai, the protagonist of Adiga’s novel, was never a good man and he will never be a good man. He will only ever say what he needs to say to further himself.

Writes Chopra about America:

… there is no reason to believe that the country is headed in the wrong direction.

… people will just have to calm their nerves and wait 12 to 20 years before looming disaster forces reform.

Deepak Chopra dismisses an admitted 75 percent of the American public that is vocally concerned about where America is headed, he shrugs over the political and economic misfortunes of Europe, and he ignores the crushing impact of climatic and economic change upon the poor around the world. Chopra appeals, however, to a reasonableness of false consciousness.

Deepak Chopra’s oriental and black tie charms do not titillate me.

Vote for the Democratic Party. Raise taxes. Spend more on ineffective social programs. Because as long as the bureaucrats have jobs, it’s ok. Forget about the alleged terrorists. Print more money. Faster. So Chopra says. Or suggests.

I can only agree that terrorism is not the real problem – regardless of big brother’s obsession to undermine civil rights with the presumption that human dignity is a challenge to our peace and security. In fact, Obama is just as dangerous (or thoughtless) as any other politician in this regard.

Bring on the drones, MF! 

Imagine Samuel Jackson saying it.

Obvious, neither the left nor the right have any good ideas. Anywhere. Let’s not even imagine there are effective and worthwhile solutions on the table, left, right, bypartisan, or otherwise.

If the Economy Turns Down, Let’s Prevent a Second Panic. Thats the title of Chopra’s op-ed in the Huffington Post. It says a lot about the man. Or his lack of character. As any writing speaks of it’s author. In this case, arrogance, deception, and a profound lack of compassion.

The man does not shine out as a light in the long, dark night. Deepak Chopra is not a lamp.The man is not the salt of the earth.

When Deepak Chopra says “Do Not Panic”, you should be concerned. Very concerned.

  1. Well said that man!
    A crony of the worst sort. Why do western people look to his type for any light or direction. Look at the country he abandoned to get to America!!
    Ah well! He is a reflection of the vacuous minds of the West.
    Stan, you have the eye for truth and the words of the dangerous.
    Good luck to you and be safe.
    I do hope for better times and better situations for you.

    Beware of false prophets and teachers………..that.is.all.

  3. I don’t think there is reason to panic either, but that doesn’t mean you have to be satisfied& simply wait and see. Americans are always worried about something and when people are worried or otherwise emotional, they can overreact and panic, take action too far in the other direction rather than adjust things more reasonably.Saying there is no reason to panic doesn’t mean there is no reason for change. Change is something we seem to always need, panic isn’t helpful at all IMO.

      What is panic?

      I don’t know. Is it a run on the banks like what happened in the first Great Depression? The people who got to the banks first – got some money out. That’s not a bad thing. It was their money.

      Is it voting for this politician or that out of fear, anger or desperation? As opposed to misguided enthusiasm or patriotism?

      Honestly, I don’t know what panic is. But like you, I’m not happy with what is going on and anytime an authoritarian (spiritual, political, or otherwise) lies to the people and says everything is fine, I tend to imagine that they are very much a part of the problem themselves. [grin]

  4. As usual, I loved your post! I totally agree with you and continue to be amazed by how many people are seduced by false prophets . . . it’s been going on for years.

  5. Stan Faryna says:

    Thank you LaRae. Coming from you that is a VERY high compliment.

  6. […] it has to be from some of these clowns I hang around […]

  7. Thank you for setting us straight, Stan. Faryna for President!

      I was not born in the U.S. 😦

      I was told however that I was born on an overseas U.S. Military base. Does that count? 😛
