Subject: will Tibetans really suffer more?
Oct 09 2008 09:32 AM

After you've been murdered, tortured, and raped for 50 years, do you still care if you suffer "more"? When does "more" lose all meaning? When your cherished religion is made an empty vessel for Communist indoctrination, do you really care whether the religion suffers "more"?
When a man's wife is raped, his grandparents already murdered, and his daughter imprisoned for saying "Long Live the Dalai Lama" what "more" suffering should he be concerned with?

There is a point at which the scale of suffering becomes obsolete, and resisting brutality becomes not only one's duty, but noble.

And yes, the envoy is correct. In time Tibetans will reach the point where "more" suffering does not even need to be considered, and they will rise up and fight to the death.

And if Tibet is dying anyway, would it not be more heroic to die a death of resistance?

The envoy skipped one strategic point, perhaps appropriately. Tibetans might suffer "more." But so will China. And so will the Chinese. And so will their families.

Who wants more?

Subject: Democracy for Tibet
Oct 09 2008 12:00 AM

There can be no genuine autonomy for Tibet w/o democracy. Otherwise there's no way for the people to have control over the govt. The Tibetan Govt in Exile moved towards democracy under the guidance of His Holiness. Can we demand no less for the people in Tibet? Six million Tibetans are depending on us to fight for their rights. We do a disservice to our fellow compatriots if we fail to pursue democracy for Tibet.

The CCP no longer represents the masses but the rich, urban elite of China. The CCP no longer cares about the people, only in getting rich. We don't want a govt run by the CCP.

Govt by the people and for the people, not govt by the CCP elite, I say. We need universal suffrage in Tibet so that Tibetans can elect their own leaders & influence their own govt. If Tibetans don't like the govt, they should be allowed to change it w/ their votes.

I urge all Tibetans to contact the TGiE & tell them how much you want democracy for Tibet.
