I know a number of folks who advocate for this "cause." There are many times of groups created for this. What I never understand is why are so many people supportive of an idea without having ever witnessed the "injustices." How many of this supporters of the "cause" have any idea what Tibet is even like? I know many folks who just love bringing this subject up every so often. Recently I asked an individual why they supported the whole idea and I was given some points many surrounding the fact that the Chinese government are tyrannical, killing random Tibetans, and what-not. Where do these arguments even come from? I have noted a lot of the "evidence" is based from Western media and half-truths. Having been to Tibet, some of the things I have learned first-hand are people are not being oppressed and the welfare programs for Tibetan are plentiful. If anything the Chinese governments treats the Tibetans better than our government (US) have been treating the Native Americans. Sometimes yes you will see soldiers in places taking control, but if some town in the United States were in a state of lawlessness, what would the American government do? Just sit back and watch? I don't want to do off on a rant, but I just feel people need to be aware of what they're support before they blindly spew what little they know as whole-truths and absolutes.
