Buddhism: The Tragedy of Realists

One tragedy of our times is the willingness of realists, in spite of impending crisis to criticize and obstruct people who expend their energy toward finding solutions, Their judgements, however, are superficial and conventional, and their attitude distances them from the essential quality of reality — change. Often the wisest realists cannot escape this trap. The challenge, then, is to create a new kind of reality that offers hope for changing the world.
