This written interview is conducted in a polite and respectful manner and I appreciate that aspect of the dialogue. Apart from that, I have no reason to support either party involved in this dialogue. I cannot support the Constitution of PRC as it exists today. This Constitution is the legitimate tool of the Communist Party. On the Tibetan side, Tibetans have no Constitution of their own. I regret the absence of Tibetan Constitution which should be the legal basis for establishing Self-Rule in Tibetan Autonomous Regions. Tibetans need to draft a Constitution of their own, and that Constitution must define the nature of governance it plans for Tibetans. If Tibetan Constitution desires to work strictly within the frame work of present PRC Constitution, it is a decision to be made by Tibetans. But, Tibetans have to specify the terms of Governance on the basis of a written Constitution of their own. Without a Constitution, TGIE is not a Legal Entity and it cannot legitimately represent Tibetan People collectively at the negotiating table.

Firstly, it should be acknowledged and appreciated that a professor from a mainland Chinese university should lead such an interview and publish it, too.
That has to count as progress.

Secondly, his questions are well-founded and well-presented. They show a sense of sincerity and are beyond political sloganeering.

That was the upside of the interview as far as I am concerned.

The downside for me is, that if the replies are indeed Rinpoche's they hardly come across convincingly, not at all to be honest.

While I take Rinpoche to be a good man, I doubt that he is the right man to lead a political movement. He may be spiritually inclined like Gandhi and inspired by him, but he is no match at all as far as his political efficiency goes.
A person like Gandhi comes along rarely. We have seen Mandela but who else?
To stand up against the political professionals of the CCP it needs another professional, not a man (or woman) without a soul but someone who can represent political concepts convincingly.

I have seen contributions by a number of Tibetans on Phayul which impressed me. Isn't there one of them who cares to take up the issue of Tibet seriously and to throw himself into Tibetan exile politics for the future of Tibet?

The Tibet issue can be solved and it will be solved. Who is prepared to devote himself or herself to bring this about?
