Life in China
Life is brutal short and desperate
In Lhasa life is brutal, short and desperate. Few outsiders know of the total Chinese rule of this culture that for centuries has had their own rule, state, culture and religion.
They have been brutalized, raped, murdered and butchered by Chinese forces and totalitarianism (hegemony) for 50 years all because of their Buddhist beliefs. They do not consent to Chinese communistic rule. Mao Tse Tong was no friend of this regime. And the Dalia Llama was sent into exile asa they would have put him in prison or worse.
Tibetans are guarded, regulated, taxed and escorted by soldiers all day long. Rebellion is rife through the cities and country side: travelers are no loner safer than going to the Kenya mall. Though thousands of Chinese soldiers in the streets do give some comfort. The world has come so far and lost so much in the past 50 years.
Tibetans believe in peace and harmony. They are a passive people given only a propensity for love, tolerance and co-existence. Thier religion is the ultra mantra of tolerance in and of all things.
Chinese rule has not brought peace, only domnance. When their true leader returns and Chinese forces leave perhaps peace will once again come to this great Kingdom. My only worry is that in the interim Jihadists will intervene and spoil this delicate balance. The power vacuum might lead to their proliferation. But no one can know for sure.
