The Tibetans have already quite obviously won the moral high ground.

The CCP colonization of Tibet will never outlast the failing CCP regime that is currently falling apart in factional squabbles over loot. The longer the CCP lasts, the less likely Tibet will remain a part of China in future.

The Tibetans will persist and wait, then the future of Tibet will fall into their hands, as it should, when the CCP dictatorship collapses just like the CPSU that spawned it has already done. Kind of like "Solidarity" in Poland, that clearly had the support of all Poles and clearly was the country's future in spite of the Communist dictatorship.

Tibetans will wait and win.

And there is nothing the impotent and doomed CCP can do about it.

Thats not true. Have you read 1984? Like the end, end Chiina is a boot that will stamp on the face of humanity forever. Only painting a new mural can help.

Your 'CCP isweak and doomed' is simply false. And saying it wont make it 'a self-fufilling prophecy'.

Comeon, this is not a theatre act, where shouting out denuciations will actually serve of anything. If fact, a play would be far more reverberating.

Action! Your words are negative to a fault - but are they positively changing anything?

We need a new work put in the public arena. When officials start knocking - then you know you've changed the world. What you do seems a waste of you manifest talents and energy.

Have YOU noticed the real world and how "1984" has proven to be merely a cautionary tale and not a prediction of the future as you so stupidly seem to think? Read Orwell and you will see that that was his intent, dummy! Pay special attention to his writings on the FALSE IMPULSE of WEAK THINKERS (like yourself!) to "bow down to the conqueror of the moment", and learn something.

I suppose the obvious total CHAOS and FACTIONAL STRUGGLES within the CCP dictatorship RIGHT NOW are an indicator of its "strength"? If you are dumb enough to think OBVIOUS FAILURES in that degenerate system are success or can be safely ignored, you are a fool.

You CCP chant your "denunciations", I will stick to the FACTS you are too WEAK to deal with and the ARGUMENTS you are too WEAK to make!

Here are the FACTS:

The Tibetans have already quite obviously won the moral high ground.

The CCP colonization of Tibet will never outlast the failing CCP regime that is currently falling apart in factional squabbles over loot. The longer the CCP lasts, the less likely Tibet will remain a part of China in future.

" “As he burned he never moved a muscle, never uttered a sound, his outward composure in sharp contrast to the wailing people around him.”

Journalist David Halberstam describes the death of Thích Quàng &#272;úc, the Vietnamese Buddhist monk who set himself on fire in Saigon in 1963.

“Suicidal tendencies almost never lead to self-immolation,”
Self-immolation is a fearsome, compelling act, but it would be wrong to infer that whenever it occurs it has significant political consequences.

Tibetan Buddhism is eminently based on compassion towards all sentient beings. One of the four vows that any Tibetan monk has to take when joining a monastery is “never to take a life”.

In the above mentioned article i miss one reference.
In India there was a time to impose HINDI as the one and only official language( instead of colonial English)
I had seen two had self-immolated to keep English as a common language.
The author of the above mentioned thread had failed to refer this self-immolation

Amazing how ONE such incident has huge impact in open societies, but in CCP China's brainless, immoral, Stalinist fantasy world of a sick culture, it is just another of the hundreds of FACTS that the degenerate CCP must hide from the Chinese people!

Sorry, but you didnt get 1984. It most certainly is a prediction. He wrote in 1948, change that round and you get 1984.That was his prediction.

You foolishly attack me. I actually support you and despise the CCP !

I'm not ' bowing down to the conqueror of the moment', I'm saying 'paint abother mural, or stage a protest or something. But as you can see, posting here isnt doing anything positive and will only contribute to CCP success as a boot that will stamp on the face of humanity forever.

I think that was quite silly to attack me, Mirolyuba. Im the Stranger guy,remember?

Wait wait.. I'm talking about the last scenes when the head of their party is explaining to Winston why he wrote the book ' The Oligarchical System of Governance' or whatever it was exactly, in order to facilitate ' a boot stamping on the face of humanity forever'.

That was what I was referring to.

I then said positive action rather than writing ' j'accuse notes' about the CCP is the only method that will avail of anything positive.

The best way is to join an NGO and work towards the democritization of China.

Through America's work there, China has seen the introduction of local elections and even commercial court hearings bolstering their self-determination and their rule of law.

With me you're preaching to the converted.With Ray,Dzhou,etc you will never convert them.

However, I seriously resent you insulting me over my understanding of George Orwell and misconstrueing the original purpose of my post to you.

In all honesty, I would like an apology!
