That you would read their books, does not mean you follow or learn anything from them.


there is a common mistake in what you are asking. You are saying just by reading those teaching you are saying that there would be less of everything but what is people do not wish to believe in what they read there is a differenc in reading and believing. we as humans are a confusing and stubborn race put every ounce of proof infornt of us and we still decide to do what we want

There may perhaps be a reduction, but can you honestly say that the people who HAVE taken in the teachings of the individuals you refer to are really any better than those who haven’t? Knowing what to do and how to behave does not necessarily lead to actually practising what you know!


The amount one reads has no correlation with the crimes they commit.

Not enough if one reads. They should be cognized in the spirit in which they are written.
