- Dalai is no democrat, but he no longer wished to interfere with the Tibetan politics, way better than the CCP morons, who skims off the people and oppress everyone's life day in day out.Jun 7, 2012

- No doubt,. But nevertheless possible. Altering our usual directive, "get it cheap as possible", to "get high quality" instead will go a long way though. And today high price does not even denote "high quality" We are suckered into price comparison shopping and forgetting what quality is, and forgetting what a quality life is in the process. The forgoing posts rightly point to Western corruption and dishonorable military actions and rapacious industries. The question is not WHICH authoritarian regime enslaves us more, but how we can carve our own and others' freedom out of it nevertheless, or at the very least minimize our own complicity in it.
We hope a pair of shoes lasts 6-12months. They used to last 10years. We hope a coat will be in fashion next year, when a well-made one would always be in style and last for 20. We eat low-quality foods based on corn and chemicals. What's the real price comparison if we multiply the cheap shoes by the ten pairs we would need over 10 years? What's the cost to our integrity for our collusion?
If we returned to looking for quality in our purchases, integrity in our leaders, honor in our business practices, etc, I suspect much of our world would self-correct.Jun 8, 2012
