Being human comes with instructions and obligations. If you choose to ignore 
or argue against them, that too is a choice. But bad ethics.

If I were a minority I would be VERY afraid to live in today's Europe 
(obviously half a century ago was even worse -- perhaps we are getting a 
glimpse into why that is the case). One of my professors, Bibhuti Yadav, 
used to say Buddhism has no ethics. Despite all the bluster about "Buddhist 
Ethics" these days, the last few days have started to convince me that Yadav 
was right. Domage.
