The Opposite of Buddhism (Article)
Unfortunately, that other blog now has quite a lot of advertising cluttering it up. This was not the case when I signed up for the service.
So, I have transferred the article to Medium (an internet-publishing service associated with Twitter) so that you can read the article without too much advertising.
• The Opposite of Buddhism, Section 1
• … Section 2
• … Section 3
• … Section 4
• … Section 5
• … Section 6 & 7
• … Section 8
• … Section 9
• … Section 10
• … Section 11
• … Section 12, final.
Empirically, peer review is a process that has worked well in some disciplines, in some cultures, and in some periods of time, but not in others; in the entire mess of disciplines involved in Theravāda Buddhism (including Anthropology) it is a failure.
After wasting years in the peer-review process (that not even the editor, evidently, believed in) this article then instantly reached a much larger audience than that journal ever could have by its promotion through the website that is L'Enfant Terrible of Cambodian politics, KI-Media.
