The City has spoken:
Deepak is another phony. He should follow his own rule #1. What's funny is he tries to use his psychobabble to rationalize Obama acting more like a king than a president. But, Chopra is a foreigner, so he has no idea what values and beliefs made this country great.We guess the City of the Summer of Love isn't buying what Deepak Chopra is selling these days.
"I'm conflicted. Deepak has introduced me to much spiritual truth over the years. There are few thinkers from who I've gained so much. But his foray into political philosophy is quite juvenile and uninformed." Oh has the world changed or have YOU changed? (Morrisey & The Smiths)
Whose the audience Mr. Chopra trying to reach out to? Like if I'm a self identified close minded person I'll be so glad to have found Mr. Chopra's "A self-help kit for closed minds" and I will heel to his advice to open up my mind!? If those people are really close minded in first place why would they bother with this??
If DC's eastern philisophical ideas are so wonderful then how come India has so much crushing, inhumane proverty, a racist cast system, sexism and a hatered of Pakistan?
Oh shut the pie hole. So tired of hearing how liberal democrats are the ones with open minds: Only if you agree with them! Most "liberals" I know, and I know many, are nano-second in-your-face if your should so much as reveal a divergent view from their own. And they have a dirth of humor.
Why is this Charlatan on the Chron ? To sell more books ? Of course. Get a real job Chopra and stop taking money from weak minded people...
So Chopra "... is the author of over 50 books..." Wouldn't you think that, if he had something important to say, he would have already said it by now?
OM (and stuff).
I don't know who this guy is but looking at his picture I wouldn't let him within 20 yards of my kids let alone my closed mind.
