It is high time the Chinese authorities listened to the Tibetan people.
To ensure that the Tibetans aren’t further alienated and radicalized, the Chinese regime needs to meaningfully negotiate.
China wrongly believes it can maintain control by manipulating the succession to the Dalai Lama’s post.
Unless there is a change in the fundamental nature of the Chinese dictatorship, Tibet will quite certainly languish in its current state.
You have to be really hard-bitten not to be taken with the Dalai Lama’s charm. He came across in our meeting as so pleasant and friendly—complete with a robust sense of humor—that I was disarmed.
