Should Tibet be an Independent Country?
If Yes, Why? If No, Why Not?
Yes, because until the Chinese invasion c1948, it was an independent country. The arguments of the Chinese, that in the past it was part of China, is invalid, imagine the turmoil in the rest of the world, especially Europe, if that argument was used as an excuse to annex countries. It is damning on the western world that we have given no support to Tibet, probably because we are so tied up in material things that we consider Tibet has nothing for us, and so, is not worthy of support.
This is a complex question. For all of his charm and back-to-basics wisdom, the Dalai Lama is asking for foreign governments to help him reinstate a theocracy - of which he would just so happen to be supreme leader. The quality of life for the average Tibetan, particularly women and children, has risen dramatically under Chinese rule. Ultimately, the burden rests on the people of Tibet to fight for their independence, if they so choose.
