Was Tibet better off under Chinese occupation?

Posted by: UtherPenguin

While China has commited flagrant human rights violations in Tibet a lot of people seem to neglect that Tibet was under a ruthless feudal system prior to Chinese occupation, a system in which 90% of the population were Serfs to the Clergy class.

  • Obviously not, the Chinese government literally kills people merely for being part of Tibets main religion.

  • China has removed several members of the Tibetan religion and have replaced them with their own puppets (for a religion that is based on reincarnation, this becomes an even greater offense to the Tibetan people), promoted mass migration of ethnic Han Chinese to the region, and has suppressed any form of Tibetan culture that they can get away with. I don't like Chinas human rights violations, but I absolutely despise any form of cultural cleansing.

  • No, but I am open to the possiblity of the Dalai Lhama and Tibet controlling all of china with asssitance from medical professionals speacilaizing in Infectious Diseases and educational professionals to DOWNGRADE the standards in China and emphazize more ARTS.

You are entitled to your opinion, and I respect that, but a wild accusation without solid proof is just an uneducated blast that means close to nothing to the rest of the world...You might argue Dalai Lama’s ideology, you might argue the "human rights violation" you might even argue the "puppets religions", but that’s the truth you want to believe, look at the facts, their living standards has been improved in the fastest rate in the past 25 year, faster than anytime given in history, and if removing "lashing to death" or beheading from the mid- evil law is a brutal thing to do, then....You should go talk to Americans, they know better.
