    Meanwhile, douches like Geer continue to flaunt their obscene wealth while people experiencing homelessness are persecuted publicly in yuppie communities like Geer's across this cruel nation. I'm sending "negative vibes" Geer's way right now for being such a greedy POS. Any rich asshole who claims to be searching for "enlightenment" whilst they speed their luxury vehicle past people experiencing homelessness is a disgrace. The Dali Lama is a similar type of hypocrite; who only gained fame by scamming rich idiots wanting to feel better about their greed and narcissism.

    Video gives a false idealized picture of Dalai Lama. Dalai Lama headed a feudal theocracy in Tibet where 95 % of the land was held by 5% od the ruling class. Physical mutilation was used as punishment by the Buddhist Theocracy. The CCP redistributed the land to the common people. Dalai Lama and ruling elite left Tibet and became a CIA operative. The Lama and CIA trained insurgent tried to start an uprising in Tibet that failed because the common Tibetan did not follow him. Dreamy eye westerner have been taken in by the author of "Shangra La" and Hollywood bullcrap and ignored real history. The monks belong to the Theocracy ruling class and they want to retirn to the old feudal system.

    Such an interesting video. I wonder if John knows the dirty history of Da Lai. After all, Da Lai was known in China as a big fan of raping little girls (part of Da Lai's daily study) and peeling off skin from slaves alive. He ran to US just because he is not very good at hiding these stuff through politics. It is so amazing how American loves Da Lai. Or to say, so stupid and funny. One last thing that you foreigners definitely do not know: Da Lai is not his name but his title. According to the religion, any Da Lai is not allowed to die outside of Tibet, or his soul will be erased permanently from the world and will not return to life. Frankly speaking, we are kind of expecting for his death. That will make him the ever first Da Lai who breaks that rule. Such a history to make and witness.

    Authority should provide something that the people respond to. Not men like me, but men who need authority. The question is, who is providing to whom and who is providing with what? This is a potential problem larger than organized crime in the 40s riding on the shoulders of a sparse few fathers of failing ferocity. There are certain bland techniques in any authority definition like bitters in a cocktail or flavor salts that provide the rich gaming and definitions in the competition.

    Everyone talks about how 'poor innocent' Buddhists are persecuted by the Chinese by bringing them technology, better food, electricity. Nobody talks about how intolerant these Buddhists are in raping their minorities in Burma, Thailand, Sri Lanka etc. Why not ask the Dalai Lama about Buddhist terrorism against Rohingya!

    As a Chinese who's never been abroad, I admire Dalai as a person which he showed me in this interview, wisdom, humour, excellent I-don't-give-a-shit attitude. But I believe he can also see that imperialism is global these days, and it's not about US being THE empire or China being THE empire, the point is global empire-lization is destined. Therefore, this whole Dalai thing is a postcolonial problem, no more than what happened between Algerians and France, except Tibet won't be able to leave China. Team China.

    I feel like the western world is overly infatuated with the Dalai Lama. Over here is a chinese who has been brainwashed by the evil communist party, offering her biased and patriotic views abt the Dalai Lama. Before I continue, well, its alr obv that China will never aloow the independance of Tibet cuz of how large it is and how much resources it has.

    First of all, there is the objective of the Dalai Lama. He wants an independent Tibet and and he wants Tibet to operate under the old regime structure, which btw, is not all candy floss and unicorns and liberty. The old regime legalised slavery. Also, i don't see how Tibet will benefit so much from being independent. And as shocking as it may seem, the evil ,authoritarian communist party liberated them from a regime allowing slavery.

    Secondly, Oliver mentioned some Lama who finds the reincarnation of the Dalai. Remember, the other guy involved in the reincarnation hide and seek? He, btw chose the guy who is now the ruling guy of Tibet, so i thought that sounds pretty fair. (at least from what i know. I didnt research much so i might get my facts wrg ) and that missing 6 year old boy ? He is a political sacrifice, but ... he is 100 percent not in jail and probably leading a pretty normal life. I assure you we Chinese bastards are not as inhumane as to kill a 6 year old.

    Ok...the fire incident. Im not saying what the police did was right, but i would have personally hit the guy myself. The police could have just watched the guy burn himself to death. If the guy was that determined to kill himself, i doubt saying 'oh my, please calm down and chill and reconsider ur stupid life choices ' is gonna be much of a help. Sometimes, u need to resort to violence to stop the guy from killing himself. The money they want from the fire getting onto their clothes? You mean u are fine with that? Fire simply does not simply 'burn ur clothes'. There is skin and flesh beneath ur clothes please. The police men where putting themselves in absolutely unnecessary danger by even having physical contact with that guy pls.

    And lastly, abt how Tibetans have no human rights. I beg ur pardon but as a Han , i have to say they have freaking more human rights than us. When we , the hans, commit a crime, we stay in jail for good. For them, as long as they dont commit heavy crimes, they are released almost immediately. Their housing and education and everything are heavily subsidised by the gov. Their healthcare level is higher than the average level in China. China is currently locating vast amt of resources to Tibet and u should see how their economy and society improved the last few years.

    Yeps, the communist party isnt that perfect. They have their flaws. They did some crappy shit here and there and there is still some unfair crap going on in Tibet , but... no gov is perfect.

    ps. Not every country in the world needs what 'liberty' and 'freedom of speech' and what not. See how America has such great values and still end up in its current state lmaooooooooooo. Every country does things its own way and stop trying to force ur American way of thinking onto everybody.

    It's because that while the Dalai Lama has cultivated this nice image now, he used to be and still is a separatist, leading a now nonexistent political fraction inside China to undermine the government. If anyone in the US was to undermine the American government they would be labeled as a terrorist etc. just take a look at Tupac shakur's aunt whom I cannot remember the name of now lol.

    The point is, when I went to China and traveled to the Tibetan plateau and Szechuan province many tibetans were very happy with being Chinese while some were not. It's just politics and different political views at this point because there's 0 way the CCP will let Tibet break away just like there's no way Texas will become its own sovereign nation.

    i met him once when i was in middleschool. was grocery shopping with my dad and and these monk looking guys were behind us in line (aperantly grabbing a couple of things on the go. didnt know who they were though or any idea) and one of them sees how im insisting i'll empty the cart for my dad (who wasnt that great in health.) and just being a polite pre-teen. (and im guessing this next part is because we were in palmdale and kids in palmdale tend to be impolite street-shits or impolite private school snots (i know, that's a lot of stereotyping and negative and i hate saying that but its the best way i could make this point). you know what i mean if you leave in southern california) so when one of the monks got a chance he came up, and thanked my dad for raising me right, and shook our hands, nothing else, was a good highlight for that day for the most part.
    well on our way home my dad suddenly does this double-take and tells me to pull out his copy of "the art of happiness" in the car's passenger compartment. so i do and the guy on the front of the book is the exact same guy who shook our hands. it was the first time i ever learned who he was and i wish i knew at the time but i've never forgot that moment ever sence. and sence then i've kept track of, and read his various writings.
    so i realy enjoyed this episode I'm happy :)

    I saw the Dalai Lama in Salt Lake City last year. He is inspiring, hilarious, down to earth and charming. He tells jokes at his speeches and speaks in Tibetan to the Tibetans in the audience. My favorite part was that he had a translator that ge largely didn't use, he spoke directly to the people to the best of his ability. What an amazing man.
