Morkus from Orkus
You seem to think that how you run your personal game is how D&D is in general. It isn't. Why should we be forced to take your personal view on things as gospel, instead of you know, going with facts and accepting that the D&D game has eastern influences all over the place and that the monk class in fact based on Remo Williams?YOU had that craziness, not everyone else in the community. Don't try and force it on us now. Take Kung-Fu Joe and play with that doll by yourself in the mud. It's okay. I won't judge you for doing it because Brian Blume made you. I get you OSR types like that kind of thing. Just be respectful and don't bring it to my table.
You are free to remove monks and eastern influences from your game, but in a discussion about the game in general, which this thread is, your personal game is entirely irrelevant.
