I'm trying my best to not feel like the world is on the brink of collapse, but, uh, how can we support a country like China who has one of the worst human right violations on the planet?
We may have more people in jail, but China just kills them. "Them" being anyone that disagrees with living in a Communist country. China invaded Tibet almost 60 years ago, driving the Dali Lama into exile and systematically crushing the spirit of an amazing, colorful, peace-loving people.
I'm a huge Eddie Murphy fan and here are some scenes from Golden Child, a film that hinges around a Tibetan Child who is abducted. It's interesting to note that, in the film, if the child dies, all compassion will disappear from the world.
We condemn Cuba for it's Communist beliefs, but welcome China with open arms ($$$$$).
I'm glad the Olympic Torch is being hijacked. Maybe now people will, as Murphy says at the end of Golden Child:
Gotta add here that if John McCain gets elected he will have a sticker on his desk that says "FUCK TIBET: I'd rather have a dollar for a Lama, than a Dali Lama."
