    'I'm a Marxist:' Dalai Lama


    [excerpts...]

    NEW YORK (AFP) – Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama said Thursday that he is a Marxist, yet credits capitalism for bringing new freedoms to the communist country that exiled him -- China.
    ------
    Marxism has "moral ethics, whereas capitalism is only how to make profits," the Dalai Lama, 74, said.

    To be honest, I've never quite known what to make of this chap

    I think his (undoubted) popularity across the globe is inversely proportional to peoples' dislike of China but I'm not sure how great he is in his own right and all this Marxist nonsense hasn't enhanced his reputation as far as I'm concerned.

    Ehm.....

    And how does he combines the materialism of Marxism with Buddhism. Is it me, or does he becomes less and less like a religious leader of his people?

    Tibetans want a Tibet for Tibetans, it is not so much a religious separation thing, it is a ethnical separation thing, no Tibetan would want a none-Tibetan as their leader, same goes for the Chinese, they say the West is oh so racist but they would never want to be ruled by a none-Chinese ''people's party''.

    And for the:
    ''the election of Barack Obama as the first black president in a once deeply racist United States''

    The ''deeply racist'' United States was nothing compared to the none-Western ''racist'' lands, just a few years ago Arabs killed hundreds of thousands of blacks in Sudan for being black, and not one anti-racist in the West went on the streets, but it seems all of the ''evil'' of the world is erased when Europeans (Slavic, Celtic and Germanic) do not have freedom in their own countries anymore and are ruled by a foreign people (jews, blacks, muslims, mexicans, turks etc) who are hateful against the indigenous people, forget all the genocides done by none-European people, all the wars and all the evil only happens by evil whitey.

    As for the Dalai Lama, he is not stupid, i think he is playing it strategic.

    I agree to an extent. One have to remember that religion in cases like these are strongly linked with a certain people. So also for Tibetan Buddhism.

    Good for a political leader. But not for someone who is a religious leader. Also he had moved the political part to a more secular leadership.
