Dalai Lama Event at USD: Greed Alive & Well

Greed is certainly alive and well at today’s University of San Diego’s Dalai Lama event.

College students were scalping their $10 tickets for $100. Several of them were selling their “extra” tickets, and when asked why so much, “Capitalism, it’s Dalai Lama’, they responded. Wow, interesting response for a Dalai Lama event.

Although, an exercise in capitalism and greed may not have been what the University of San Diego Administration or his Holiness intended, if that’s what it takes to get the next group of leaders to hear the teachings of his Holiness, the return is far greater than a $90 profit.

Simply my opinion, what say you?
