Red China is governed by professional liars who practice the party strategy of saying whatever will forward their goals. It is very difficult for a really honest person to deal with such complete strategic lying.
I request that everyone mail to a real China address (not Tibet) a photo of the Dalai Lama. Flood the country with these photos. What else can an ordinary person do in the face of the emerging dominent economy that all countries bow to now-a-days?

Subject: Unbiased, critical information is worth more than any thing
Nov 14 2008 07:50 PM

To Tsongi,

Jamyang Norbu's writing is worth more than anything you could ever have done for Tibet.

Writing something effectively and accurately with the sharp perception that he presents us takes a lot of time and preparation.
More importantly, it helps people to think critically, something that is acutely lacking in our society.

Jamyang Norbu's writing is not the wide sweep of the broad sword. It is the artistic and erudite use of the fine tipped rapier that cuts through millions of cobwebs, and gets us at the heart of the truth.
After the Dalai Lama, he is doing more than anyone for the cause of Tibet.

So Tsongi, why don't you show us the stuff that you are made of before ordering JN to act on his words?
He is doing a marvelous job at teaching us to think from different angles. That is worth more than a million atom bombs.... if that is what you mean by "action"

I agree with what you say. Now why don't you run for the position of Kalon Tripa or a parliamentary position and put your words into action?

Arm chair politics is like blowing air into a balloon. It will either just float in space or burst. Putting words into action is like trying to kill a dragon with a dagger. You will either kill the dragon or be killed.

This is crunch time for Tibet,let’s focus on that and not give Beijing a helping hand by squabbling among ourselves! Jamyang Norbu is a legend, the article is another masterpiece and yes indeed he does have tremendous support and influence among educated Tibetans.Why? because he dispenses the bitter pill called TRUTH!

To the organizers.

Middle way policy has failed. That's why HH has asked for new ideas. Therefore we should not waste our precious times discussing above mentioned policy during the meeting rather give more time to those people who bring new ideas.

Well, I'm really really glad to see someone barking here today. November meeting indeed has made everyone go DANG DANG... hmm what's the name.. Bhudruk Gyari? Never heard that name before... and for how long have i been following Tibet News... And is he from Gyari tsang? So much for a so called politician to bark... and when do they REALLY work? twice a year the Winter and the Monsoon session and what do they do the rest of the year.. BRAG about being politicians.. So much for being exiled Politicians...
Tibetan Politicians should act like activist and not like the NETAS... Believe me... you might have forgotten.. but not me.. we are still refugees wherever we are!

Subject: So who decides Tibet's fate?
Nov 10 2008 11:42 PM

Since the Middle Way approach was announced by the Dalai Lama in 1989, with encouragement of European politicians, it has been extremely difficult to campaign for Tibetan Freedom in the West.

What was there to campaign for if the Tibetans themselves, as spoken for by the Dalai Lama and the government-in-exile, accepted Chinese rule and only asked for a less Chinese-style colonialism instead?

The Chinese Communist Party took care of the rest by warning everyone at every opportunity against interfering in "China's internal affairs". This effectively prevented any effort at officially supporting Tibetan self-rule or promoting human rights for Tibetans. Vague requests for allowing more breathing space for the Tibetan culture, language and religious freedom or to moderate the mass settlement of Han-Chinese into Tibet could all be easily hand-waved away by the CCP bureacrats as "internal affairs".

Subsequently international media reports were toned down and they invariably centered around the message how the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Dalai Lama acknowledged China's sovereignty and how he only asked for a little more respect for human rights as if he was just like any other Chinese dissident.

The "Middle Way policy" effectively opened the door for China's and CCP's full rehabilitation in the eyes of the world's politicians, and importantly, business corporations, despite the minor hiccup of the Tiananmen Massacre.

Now twenty years and one whole generation of Rangzen campaigners have essentially been wasted while the PRC has meanwhile extended their tentacles more tightly around world's economy and finance and their massive media resources have been fabricating new propaganda reality about "China's peaceful rise".

Yet strangely the Chinese regime is also more dependent than ever on the uninformed world population for buying up the mountains of made-in-china produce and therefore keeping the Chinese economy (and internal "harmony") from collapsing.

Resuming the struggle for Free Tibet will be difficult and painful after two decades of subservience, but the Dalai Lama is right in admitting that the Middle Way will never lead anywhere when after all this time the Chinese haven't shown even a reflection of honesty or respect for Tibet.

Thank you Jamyang la for your thoughts.

I think His Holiness should be present at the meeting too. It is time he hears directly from the people without filters. Sometimes I wonder how much he really hears from people and worry whether he is told what some think he needs to hear.

Good luck to everyone at the meeting.

Dear Mr. Norbu,

This is in reference to your article titled; “Making the November Meeting work” dated 9th November, 2008, published on both your personal website as well as another web portal.

I am currently serving my third term in the Tibetan Parliament and will certainly fit in as a member of what you have chosen to categorise as “Tibetan political world” more so because I have consistently advocated the Middle Path Policy as this has proved to be the most comprehensive in not only meeting the PRC’s challenges but also in compelling many nations to take a stand on the Tibetan Political Issue, especially India. I was extremely shocked and deeply distressed to read the statements, which can only be described as defamatory in nature, repeatedly made by you with regard to Tibetan politicians in the following excerpts:

“One could not ignore the entrenched vested interests in the political world that wanted no rethinking, much less a relinquishing of the Middle Way Policy.”,
“As I mentioned earlier there are entrenched vested interests in the Tibetan political world who want no rethinking, mush less a relinquishing of the Middle way policy -- even when the Dalai Lama himself, the author of this policy, wants a review and reassesment of the policy, and has clearly called for this.”,

Speaking in an individual capacity, I find your accusation of “entrenched vested interests” highly objectionable as it casts aspersions on my personal integrity especially in the discharge of my duties as a Tibetan Parliamentarian. Therefore, I am seeking an immediate and detailed clarification on all the public fora that you have chosen to publish this article failing which I shall be compelled to take legal recourse.

Yours sincerely,

Gyari Bhutuk,
Bangalore, India
