That makes a lot of sense to me. My teacher has bluntly said that it is impossible to really practice the Dharma with a liberal's mindset. There are no "victims" in the Dharma.
Your teacher has it right. I’ve been a Buddhist for 40 years; my main teacher was a Karma Kagu abbot. Once I listened to a sappy hippy rhapsodising to the abbot about a walk he had taken under sunlit trees and how the play of sunlight and shadow on the fallen leaves at his feet had transported him to a wondrous place. The abbot then calmly asked him how he would have felt if he had stepped in dogshit while transported to his other world.
I also heard the abbot once tell a neer-do-well to “get a job”, as rudely and as forcefully as the “Big” Lebowski tells “the Dude” to “Do what your parents did, get a job, Sir!”
Despite Buddhism being beset everywhere with the sappiest of fawning zombie liberals, none of these people have the remotest clue what the Dharma is all about. If any of them ever really “got it” they would be shocked to the very core of their existence.
As you put it so succinctly, there truly are NO victims in the Dharma. In fact it is the most rigorous and uncompromising way of seeing the truth that I have ever come in contact with.
