Rational or emotional…

I am usually a very sceptical person when it comes to political news being pushed by the media. The yellow press in Germany is always against what has to be decided independent of who the current decisor is (well that’s political independence I guess :) ). It is always good to listen to both sides and start to formalize your own opinion, or simply shut up if you are unsure.

On the other hand I have been one of the first persons shouting and yelling at the latest happenings in China and Tibet. I guess most of you have seen the Tibetian flag on the sidebar and potentially I should say something about this.

First, let me show you why I am writing this entry. Today I found an interesting link: here.

Basically it is about the Chinese view on this whole thing. Of course one could state that this is typical chinese propaganda, which has been quoted in our media already. But this is the first time I could actually listen to what these people think about this issue. And as we all know (as you are all intelligent people), the truth is somewhere in between.

As a consequence I should remove the banner you might say now. Actually, no I will not. And this is for multiple reasons:

  • For me “Free Tibet” does not mean that it should be it’s own independent country. I am looking forward to freedom of choice, culture and religion. If the religious leader is not allowed to visit his people, this is plainly wrong. Consider the pope not being allowed to be in Vatican City because the Italian forbid it. Just think of a situation, where you are not allowed to wear a Christian cross with you, would you accept this situation?
  • I am looking forward to a dialog between both sides. As long as the mob riots and the corresponding leaders are not willing to negotiate, it will get worse and worse.
  • I am looking forward to our politicians accepting the fact that we do care about the people getting arrested, hurt or even worse, on both sides. It is time to put pressure on any participant that is not willing to open a dialog. The happenings about the olympic flame is simply the only catalysator to show everyone their displeasedness.
  • The teaches of Gautama are basically the total oposite of what is going on there currently, so please get back to your roots and get this thing handled peacefully and rational.

Many thanks to Matthias (Paradoxon) to inspire me about this entry, it’s hard to summarize this within that short amount of lines….

    Ich könnte jeden scheinheiligen Free-Tebit-Flaggen-auf-seinen-Blog-Poster fragen: Warum erst jetzt? Wieso erst nachdem es so medienwirksam publiziert wurde? Wieso hast du nicht schon vorher “Flagge” gezeigt? Wieso gerade “Free Tibet”… aber ich lasse es!

    Deine Ansichten in Ehren.

    Beste Grüße

    Nein, ich denke nicht, dass es zurzeit verwerflich ist, verprügelte Mönche und Lynchmobs scheisse zu finden.

    Allerdings schliesse ich mich dann bei so was Oliver an:

    Das geht ja gar nicht :D
