Bruce Lee, Eastern Philosophy, and America !!!
Not many people know this, but the late Bruce Lee actually
used his knowledge of martial arts and Eastern philosophies to
help him deal with the power crazed-insanity of the radical
Marxists Democrats of the early 1970?s. Well hey, it could
I’m sure Mr. Lee realized that in order for the Marxist-Democrat
agenda to succeed, they’d have to create societal turmoil and personal
confusion. In his movies he always knew that the only way to succeed
against his foes was to commit to clear, logical thinking. Hence, I
suspect Bruce Lee was a conservative.
The video above may be disturbing to some as Lee seems he
just may have achieved that mystically tranquil state that can
only be experienced when one is deeply rooted in common sense.
That’s important for me to remember because when I hear
liberals speaking I experience “personal confusion”. Anger tears
at my deeply rooted constitutional common sense. I find myself
screaming very unattractive phrases like; “Shut up you stupid
commie you’re insulting my intelligence”. I become water alright,
Curious if Eastern philosophy could help me deal more calmly
with liberals, I decided to follow Bruce Lee’s advice. So I tuned
into MSNBC’S “Hardball” with Chris Matthews. As Matthews
began his usual flow of intellectual vulgarities, I imagined myself
as “water”. Devoid of all malice and disgust I went with the flow.
Happily babbling his illogical observations as if they were
well entrenched facts, Matthews continued on. As anger
began to rise I focused internally on becoming one with the
‘crashing” ocean surf within me. My agitation waned.
It was working.
This time, when Matthews began praising Obama, I was rapt
in complete serenity as I saw myself pouring from a clear glass
pitcher into a fine crystal goblet. I didn’t even call anyone a
Finally, Matthews signed off. Impressed with my fresh
self-mastery, I rose peacefully, and calmly walked to the kitchen
cabinet. and commenced hurling, plates, dishes and glassware
against the wall. I spared the fine crystal goblets.
As far as I’m concerned, certain tenets of Eastern philosophy
can be quite useful. I have no qualms becoming “water” when
dealing with rude people or navigating drive time traffic on I-95.
And frankly I’m a great believer in the natural healing practices
of acupuncture, and shiatsu. To me, it’s obvious that Oriental
culture is light years ahead of the United States when it comes
to an innate knowledge of anatomy and physiology.
But as for politics …… I can’t imagine the America would ever
have existed had the “Founding Fathers” possessed an Eastern
mindset. Unfortunately, Chris Matthews and crew are still
meditating on whether or not American existence was ever a
good idea. To the Matthews/Obama liberals, Eastern philosophy
or ANY other philosophy is superior to Western philosophy.
But somehow, I simply cannot envision Bruce Lee voting for Obama.
Besides, he advised us to be “water” not “hot air”.
