    I'm honestly surprised that link isn't blocked here in the PRC..
    Reading that article (and many others like it) makes me want to leave this country.
  • I'm not racist but the closest I have ever come to being racist is against the Chinese and not just because of this article or because of the situation with Tibet or the DL, but also things in personal life and experiences, all based on personal experience. But I of course am not racist so I know not everybody who hails from China is a certain way but stereotypes always come from some thread of truth, so there is something to think about.

  • Samsara is all about power, domination, etc. Not surprising. Not justifying, but it is hypocritical to focus on one issue when we see similar patterns everywhere.

    I don't know why or how some governments enslave their people with a lack of information. It seems so cowardly.

    They even went so far as to make reincarnation illegal without the proper forms... If the Dalai Lama reincarnates in China, he or she will be arrested.

They put aside all thoughts of obstacles and forget the precipice does not show itself to the man in a blind rush until it's to late.”
