You can still send your blood type/tissue matching to prisons in China and buy the organs you need. Tweet the words "Jasmine revolution" and you disappear. But you actually believe Tibetans can take initiations from the Dalai Lama who is charged with "Inciting splitting of state and sabotage of the state unity"(煽动分裂国家、破坏国家统一) and not be considered enemies of the state.
Watch that surveillance video. The country has lost it's moral centre, not just the PRC party members. The legacy of destroying religion and Confucian social constructs was to destroy morality. Party members are still banned from all religious activity. To say Chinese have religious freedom means you have a short term memory problem. Falun Gong was legal one day, the next they were in jail. The straw men of Venezuela. Iraq and Cuba are not relevant.
Okay, you are obviously not understanding what I am about to say for the THIRD time. Nobody said said that the Chnese Government and their mechanisms are not bad a**ed mother f***ers. But you have to understand that the Chinese people as a whole
are NOT bad a**ed mother f***ers. They suffer as a consequence of their governments actions, as well as the Tibetans. They are systematically arrested, killed and tortured by their government, as well as the Tibetans. You know how many Chinese died as a consequence of the cultural revolution? At least 1.5 million CHINESE dead. Over 36 million CHINESE officially persecuted. Around 1 million CHINESE permanently injured. You know how many were starved to death during the Great Leap Forward? Numbers range from 18-45 million.
Of course some of the Chinese that went to receive the initiation from HHDL will be put under observation and persecuted. I'm not that stupid.
But it is not a race thing. It is an authoritarian government thing.
And I never said that there is freedom of any sort in China for any of its citizens. Except, of course, those at the highest levels of power.
