Tibet

The first of what I fear will be many articles posted here on the China-Tibet issue.

A longish spiel on the erosion of Tibetan culture. Things like school being taught in Chinese. But then again before the Chinese came flooding in most Tibetans never learned to read and write in the first place. Is it tradition versus progress? Tradition versus progress and state-controlled media :P Anyway, was surprised to learn that the Dalai Lama does not desire a boycott of the Beijing Olympics despite the rising death toll and (accusations of) cultural genocide.
