Subject: Free speech means freedom to disagree
Sep 06 2018 07:36 PM

Ths is actually a very disconcerting speech by Sikyong Sangay. He's essentially saying Tibetan exiles should not use their free speech rights to oppose CTA policies. It's an attack on Rangzen advocates & Sangay's personal political opponents.

Lobsang Sangay is the democratically elected Sikyong of the CTA. But that doesn't mean he or his administration cannot be criticized or opposed. Democracy is ugly. Political disagreements are aired in public forums. Attacks on leadership can be devastating.

We don't want our Sikyong to be like Trump & expect that critics should be silent. A vibrant democracy means any elected offcials are subject to both praise & criticism. We should be respectful but critics should not have to censor our speech to avoid a claim that someone is creating "disunity."
