Thread Name: Our ghastly folk tradition
Subject: RE: Our ghastly folk tradition
Sorry, Button. I can't form an opinion based on one line, taken out of context. But yes, Gandhi was not given to demonizing anyone, even Hitler. His philosophy required him to treat everyone with nonagressive respect - and I have seen no evidence that he treated his wife disrespectfully, either. So, what was this thread about, anyhow? It wasn't about self-righteous priggishness, but it WAS interesting to see how uneasy people got when I used the word.
