A wolf in sheep’s clothing. In fact, there are loads of them.

May 29, 2008

Unless you’ve been living in a sensory deprivation chamber you’ll be aware that there’s a modicum of unrest in Tibet. The monks, who’s central tenet is compassion, have felt compelled to protest against the huge oppression they face. They have been beaten, assaulted, unlawfully arrested and detained without charge. There have even been monks killed for taking part in peaceful protests. However you look at it, it smacks of the big kid at school beating up the smaller children (no pun intended). This is commonly known as bullying and is frowned upon and fought against in civilised societies.
It came as no great surprise when I was sent this picture.

It seems abhorrent that anyone could behave is such a manner. To dress up as peaceful, spiritual people with the sole aim of discrediting them is morally so wrong that Karma must be hugely busy indeed.
So stand up and make your voice heard. Don’t let this happen without at least making people aware of it. The world should not accept the way that China is behaving. I know that there are many issues for the two countries (I’ve chosen the term deliberately) to solve, but beating up the smaller one is never a smart way to solve anything. Why don’t we, as humans, learn from our previous mistakes? Why do we think that by doing the same things over and over we’ll get a different result? That’s not a bad definition of stupidity.
Post this banner in protest on your blog. Because even a journey of a thousand miles starts with just one step.
