To be sure, there are reasoned arguments to be offered on both sides of the filibuster question. It is true that the need for a supermajority does encourage compromise and coalition building. But given the contemporary state of hyperpolarization — the liberal Republicans and conservative Democrats of 40 years ago are long gone — the supermajority requirement today merely guarantees inaction, which, in turn, amplifies the current popular disgust with politics in general and Congress in particular. In my view, that makes paring back the vastly overused filibuster, on balance, a good thing.
When the whole universe is inhabited by God and everything belongs to Him, what else is there that we can call as our own? Can we hope to own something that is not ours? True enjoyment, according to the Upanishad, is possible only when we free ourselves from the burden of ownership and egoism and transfer our problems and responsibilities to God, surrendering ourselves unconditionally to Him. When we detach ourselves from all the bonds, we become free from the compulsion of carrying our burdens entirely upon our shoulders and in that freedom we begin to enjoy our earthly existence.
