    When the 14th Dalai Lama eventually passes away, the CCP will have missed their chance to use the long-standing (and only) offer for some level of legitimacy over "autonomous" Tibet.

    The very first mistake the Communist Party will make is to install a CCP-picked and then conditioned puppet as the next Dalai Lama (as happened with the last Panchen Lama; the Tibetans' pick hasn't even been seen since he was kidnapped by the Chinese).

    Let's have a referendum in Tibet and see what the Tibetans themselves say. Wasn't the whole "people's republic" supposed to be all about the people being their own masters instead of being repressed and dominated by others?

    I thought it was originally based on the imported British concept of Marxism and his belief that the "dark Satanic Mills" where the wealthy earnt their fortunes off the toil of the oppressed would lead to revolution

    When the 14th Dalai Lama dies, Tibet will have lost its most ardent and popular voice. With the ensuing struggle over who has the legitimate Dalai Lama most people will stop giving two shits about Tibet.

    One China comment by the Dalai Lama and people are already talking about his passing. That escalated quickly.

    Pretty sure "dark Satanic mill" was a reference to all the factories that was spewing smokes all over England during the industrial revolution. Given that William Blake died in 1827 and Marx was born in 1818, The only way it would be about communism is if Marx developed his idea in grade school

    Why people get so ecstatic over dalai lamma? He is just like some Iranian ayatollah, although of a Buddhist persuasion and of milder rhetoric. Theocracy is no way better than communism. At least CPC doesn't claim to be a collective of living gods, for Krishna's sake!

    That was such a wonderfully expansive and revealing comparison.

    They just act as if they are.

    Blake wrote pretty words about the conditions of the working poor in Britain. Marx changed their conditions.
