Tibet’s Going Back to the Future?


A Democratic Theocracy is an Oxymoron

Few knew the Tibet under the Dalai Lamas. Belied by the enchanting charismatic smile and wonderfully pleasant personality of the 14th Dalai Lama, and under his and his predecessors’ direct political, social and religious leadership, was the darkest corner of China and possibly the world.  

Before 1959, Tibet was a feudal serfdom created by the integration of religion, politics and the dictatorship of monks and aristocrats, and one even darker and more backward than medieval Europe. The 14th Dalai Lama, like other Dalai Lamas before him, ruled over a Tibetan society which had integrated religion with politics as a feudal serfdom under a theocracy ruled by a combined dictatorship of monks and aristocrats.

The Dalai Lama’s Tibetan system tolerated no democracy, freedom or human rights in any form. In fact, the Tibetan serf slavery system was the darkest human slavery system in the history of mankind, and which spanned many centuries longer than the 400+ years of black slavery in the USA.  The Tibetan conditions were also more debasing and dehumanizing than medieval Europe in the latter’s darkest periods....

So how does Tibet's slavery system compare with PAP's system?

Is PAP's system where HDB owns our HDB flats;
and Singaporeans have to pay a high price for renting out these HDB flats from the PAP government for 99 years;
Is this also another form of slavery and serfdom?
Where 90% of Singaporeans do not own their own homes;
So are Singaporeans just like the landless peasants of Tibet?
Working in a land that they do not own?
Just like tenant farmers of medieval Europe?

The Tibetan Peasants are like tge Dalits in India, both are victims of Theocratic Rulers.
Sinkies are like Dalits and Tibetan Peasants. .
How come? One may asks.
Me can only guess that Sinkies do not know Democracy for they NEVER had it before and know not what it is, except a few radicals that stay away from indoctrination.

Theocracy
----------------
1. A form of government in which God or a deity is recognized as the supreme civil ruler, the God's or deity's laws being interpreted by the ecclesiastical authorities.

2. A system of government by priests claiming a divine commission.
-------------------------

Is Singapore a Theocracy?
Is Lee Kuan Yew the God?
And the PAP ministers the priests?

I respect you!

Tibet was never a country. Throughout history it was a place that paid tribute to China. Tibetan Buddhism is not mainstream Buddhism, the Dalai Lama was both the temporal and spiritual leader of the Tibetans, much like the Pope during the Holy Roman Empire.

Westerners who say they are Buddhists are seduced by the romanticism of Tibet, not knowing the real Buddhism, which is Theravada or Mahayana.

Buddha was an Indian prince.
And the Chinese bigots are so stupid that they deny this even to themselves. No wonder Chinese rulers find it so easy to con the Chinese peasants.
It's difficult to free slaves who don't even know they are slaves.
Just ask David Marshall, Chee Soon Juan and JB Jeyaretnam.

Westerners look at things with two perspective, power and control or as a fad.

Thank fuck there's still some sanity and objectivity left in the world.

At least with China in-charge of Tibet, the locals shit-kickers have a chance at bettering their lives through PRIVATE ENTERPRISE. Under the Lama's the Tibet locals were probably denigrated to the point of sucking monk dick behind the monasteries.

Western Buddhists are a strange and hilarious lot. Many of them are ex-kleptocrats from the finance, banking and govt sectors, now feeling a bit remorseful. Many tried Cult Of The Jewish Zombie, without satisfaction.

Because Eastern spirituality is more "exotic", it sells well to adventure-starved westerners who crave "new experiences". The more exotic, the better!

The irony is that the Mat Salleh Buddhist supporter of the Dalai Lama will be the first big mouth to scream his dissatisfaction at ANY perceived violations of his preciously held notion of "HUMAN RIGHTS".

Penn & Teller: The Dalai Lama and Tibet Fuck the Dalai Lama!

Sorry, Tibet WAS a country hundreds of years ago. Now it is part of China, inseparable.

Believers deserve to be fucked by MS, especially the Superstitious morons.
The Flocks that leave their fates to other mortals like them are simply living a delusional aspiration of going to heaven.
To go heaven is not difficult, die young before You commit more sin. The longer one lives, the more sin will accumulate whether or not there are heaven or hell. Sin is real, heaven and hell are figments.
Death is Ultimate Leveller, those living but are wanted or expected to proceed to hell, no point being pious.
Fuck all preachers and their flocks.
