Is that too much to ask for? I don't think so.
Chinese establishment don't believe that this is their final goal. Neither I do.
he is simply taking the middle path. it is an important aspect of buddism
If one is a pushover then Buddhism seems to be appropriate religion.
Maybe he wanted to say 'Poland has retained its spirits'. How does the Dalai Lama know what the Polish spirit is anyway?
There is no sense to dig into some deeper sense of this comment. This is usual diplomatic BS. In Somalia he would talk about Somali spirit
I assume you are aware of the "Free Tibet" campaign.
Or are you suggesting they are better off under China's regime?
I rather don't follow developments of movements which objectively cannot succeed. However I assume that vast majority of people who openly identify themselves with this campaign live outside of China.
I think that China have a chance to move forward. I see no such perspectives for Tibet which would realize theoretical concepts of Dalai Lama.
Norman Davies described the previous system in Poland as a spider web of unlawfulness and mediocrity. Korwin-Mikke is noting that this spider web had not given up after 1989 - it has simply changed the name and appearance.
Let be realistic, no regime is willing to surrender its power. Whether this is king, dictator, political party or democratic establishment, this doesn't really matter. Enemies of ruling class wont be tolerated. Do you think that the EU would accept results of pan-European and democratic referendum which would create one great Catholic monarchy? Of course not, the will of people would be ignored. The EU doesn't even allow people to decide about shape of this supposedly democratic newborn empire.
When Ziobro wanted to be Attorney General and put the mobster behind bars, the entire party was pictured as fascist. (while it is in fact socialist, pro-benefits et c.)
At least Kaczynski is trying to put them in jail. Not that he's dome much good to the economy, being a silly socialist. But PO is not a capitalist party either.
Anti-PiS propaganda should not be confused with real intentions of this party. Kaczynski want to earn political capital eternally chasing bad guys. He need them like a fresh air, they cannot disappear or be imprisoned.
I 100% agree about PO, there is a lot of people in this party who lacking elementary knowledge about liberalism. Those few with proper theoretical background care about their own particular business anyway, thus they support pan European socialist superstate.
