Bad Karma: Thinking Twice About the Social Consequences of Reincarnation Theory.
Bad karma; thinking twice about the social consequences of reincarnation theory.
Univ. Press of America
Garrett (philosophy and religion, John F. Kennedy U., California) argues that belief in reincarnation generates a mind-set that is conducive to the emergence of social castes. He is concerned that should such belief come to dominate in American culture, then social caste--not merely social class--will become a real possibility.
