It's a triumph of the radical Left that only the Dalai Lama is now allowed to speak "the truth"
The Dalai Lama is a revered figure who is universally admired for his lifelong, peaceful opposition to the oppression and subjugation of his country and people by the brutal socialist regime in the People's Republic of China. Ironically the political factions in the west who revere him most vocallly are supporters of socialism and authoritarianism, the two things he is most strongly opposed to.
This humble Buddhist monk, who symbolises the struggle for peace and independence, so it is strange that he is supported by the very voices who cried out for the west to invade Syria and depose the popular ruler Bashir al Assad. Now Assad is not a liberal by western standards and by no stretch of the imagination is it democratic, but Assad, a member of the minority Alawite Muslim sect has protected minorities such as Jews, Syriac Christians, Yazidi and Druze (the latter being ancient sects whose religious faith is a mix of Islam, Hinduism and Zoroastrianism, from the brutal fundamentalism of fundamentalist Sunni Muslims, the type who believe that the only thing worse than someone who is not a Muslim is someone who is the wrong kind of Muslim.
The west's liberals and progressives, all to willing to believe the anti Assad propaganda used to justify what has been called Obama's war, claim to believe in peace and harmony, but want it to be achieved on their terms. They want western style Cultural Marxism imposed in Syria as they have tried to impose it, with catastrophic consequences in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.
Syria is in fact a perfect example of who one-size-fits-all western solutions do not suit the very different collective mindset of middle eastern, African and South - East Asian communities. But back to the Dalai Lama, whose country, Tibet, is one of the strangest and most idiosyncratic in the world. Why is it that his efforts to rid Tibet of the oppressive socialism of Communist China so inspired the very people who spend their entire lives fighting against capitalism and campaigning for socialism/ communism / Marxism in the west.
His life has been devoted primarily to the struggle to win independence from China for his country, Tibet, and allow it to return to being a mysterious, spiritual community separated from the rest of the world by a cultural divide unbridgable to most western minds, and secondly to preserve Tibetan culture and identity against the efforts of the communists to swallow Tibet into the Chinese empire.
Away from his struggles for Tibetan heritage however, some think him a kind of spiritual placebo whose main purpose aside from pissing off China's communist leaders, is to offer platitudinous comments on the problems of the world.
"The Dalai Lama loves pease," a placard held by one of his western supporters at a recent event read (presuming they meany 'peace' and not the type of prrridge made from peas, don't we all, some of us would even go as far as bombing small nations to destruction in order to avert the threat of their leaders not doing what the peace loving western governments think they should.) So, peacenik, Sergeant Bilko lookalike, nationalist and all round good g..................... WHAAAAT? Nationalist?
But nationalism is evil. The EU are overturning election results in member states to stop emergent nationalist parties getting a hand on the levers of power. In the USA, Democrat extremists are still trying to get the nationalist Trump removed from power and replaced by the globalist warmonger Hillary CIniton (even though there is no way in U.S. law this could happen,) because nationalism is EVIL.
Yet I doubt that anyone has ever claimed that the world’s most famous Buddhist is a fascist, xenophobe or (that most common and inexact label of our time) “alt-right”. Perhaps it is time to rethink this assumption? For during a speech this week, the Dalai Lama said something that, if it had come from anyone else’s lips, would have had them labelled a full-on fascist. Whip up those robes, they would claim, and you will find jackboots.
Because the Dalai Lama, speaking honestly about problems caused by uncontrolled immigration in an EU member state that likes to think of itself as one of the world's most 'woke' nations, has to the surprise of most radical lefties but few people who actually know asnything about him and his life's work, has revealed himself as a nationalist.
His comments came while he was visiting Malmo, Sweden, one of the Swedish cities most badly hit by the epidemic of inter - community violence among migrant grous as the vie for control of the drugs, sex, contraband booze and illicit gambling businesses. In 2015 alone Sweeden added an extra 2 per cent to its population through migration. Over the ten year from 2008 to 2018 it is estimated that Sweden's total population increased by approximately 10% in total while the number of ethnic European Swedes actually fell. So the question of how many people Europe can absorb before it is culturally and economically disrupted and when an acceptable limit of illiterate, unskilled third world migrants might be reached is particularly relevant there.
The Dalai Lama gave his audience this humanitarian but pragmatic advice “Receive them, help them, educate them. But ultimately they should develop their own countries.” The Nobel prize-winning Buddhist leader then continued to pile on the agony for self - righteous lefties who had believed he would support all their crackpot theories about a single, global nation: “Europe belongs to the Europeans, he told them.”.
Over recent decades, proponents of that political philosophy that has been known as Cultural Marxism, The New World OrderThe Frankfurt School and Globalism have pushed an extraordinarily sociopathic and destructive plan for the future of civilised nations under a global, athroritarian, technocratic government. Emanating from university campuses outwards it has invaded the political establisment, mainstream media, the legal system, education and the arts: it proposes that wealth should be transferred from the prosperous nations to poor ones while poor people from third world societies should be transferred to wealth, developed nations.
Free movement is one of this philosophy's sacred cows; another is that the identity of a speaker or writer matters more than the content of their words, thus because minorities are oppressed, we must attach more importance to the words of a black, gay, Muslim, disabled, transgender or female person - and never mind the fact that females are not quite a minority, slightly outnumbering males in the human species, they "identify as an oppressed minority
One of the policies inflicted on EU member stated by the centralised buresaucracy of Brussels is 'open doors' immigration and in justification of this many EU leaders have made statements to the effect that Europe "belongs" to migrants
Unsurprisingly as someone who has been called a racist, xenophobe and bigot for arguing the case that while migration is both good and desireable it must be controled so that a balance is achieved, I totally agree with the Dalai Lama, though perhaps would not have spelled out the obvious solution to Sweden's social problems quite so bluntly to an audience of brainwashed Swedes. It is best that Europe does not become the home for everyone in the world who manages to arrive at the EU's borders. Societies that are fundamentally altered without the consent of their peoples will be hard-pushed to remain orderly or harmonious, which is exactly what is happening in Sweden, Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, Ntherlands and Spain right now.
And it is totally unfair to the nations of the developing world the developing world that their most talented and driven people be encouraged by far - left charities funded by Marxist billonaires to come to Europe and eke out a living as office cleaners, sandwich stuffer or Uber drivers on the fringess of our legal economy.
Of course opinion polls show that most European voters agree with the Dalai Lama and this impression is backed by recent electon results in Spain, Germany, Italy and Sweden itself. Yet few people can hope to occupy the kind of platform mainstream media grant such a major figure as The Dalai Lama. So the recognition grows that what is tolerated from one mouth will not be tolerated from another. And the question of who is allowed to speak basic truths in our societies ferments away.
Over recent decades, the radical Left has pushed an extraordinarily divisive and destructive idea, from university campuses outwards: that the identity of a speaker matters more than the content of their words. That “who says a thing” matters more than “what is being said”. It is a claim which, among other things, inverts the central moral insight of Martin Luther King – that people should be judged by the content of their character, not their immutable characteristics. One wonders how long it will be before the radical left, in pursuit of their absolute power agenda, corrupt the Balai Lama's message
