That's the hypocrisy of "the West". They have no problems to propagate their "standard" to the world and impose their values on the Chinese. But China trying to modernise her own country according to their cultural and socio-economical conditions is called "cultural genocide", a great propaganda slogan as the often claimed "genocide on 1.2 million Tibetans" turned out to be a fairy tale.

Tibet culture A couple of people assigns child King-God and make people worship him. at the same time this couple of people live in a palace while regular people (servents) worships to a King/God, live like shit... Yeah right.. What a sophisticated life-style and culture!

Tibet is a part of China since Yuan Dynasty(1271-1368), what is Europe making at that time ? Dark middle ages?

The Ming Dynasty (1368-1644)and the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911)are still managing Tibet.

In Feudal dynasty ,Tibet was Joint administration by the religious leader (Dalai) and the government official stationed in Tibet.


Some westerners will look like the parrot to read aloud the Western media.

Could Tibet ever support a ski resort tourism industry? That would be a boon to the local economy. With the railway and airport it would be possible now. I don't know the nature of the mountains there or how much snow they get, perhaps its too dry. But then I bet its fine power then.

Anyways, as an American I never thought it was fair to criticize China. We did the same things as our country was growing. Ironic how much the scenery looks like the western USA. History must repeat itself, this is proof.

Wouldn't work at all because of the altitude. Lhasa is over 4000m, so the air is quite thin there already. Now imagine doing sports there for the whole day, most people would collapse. It might work for professional athletes (like Hans Kammerlander skiing down Mt. Everest without pressured air), but not for normal people.

It's not about being pretentious, it's about the right of people to decide for themselves what they want. Which Tibetans weren't able to do in the last 50 years and unfortunately won't be able to do in the near future either, obviously. There's a reason behind their protests in 2008.
So its not about how and why Europeans "civilised" the world (which I think wasn't the right thing either), there are more than 100 years of development between. You can be pretty sure that Europeans wouldn't have occupied other countries that way in the 1950ies.
Say what you want about the Chinese government interfering with Tibet; but if not for the assistance that China has given Tibet in terms of economic development, education, industrialization; Tibet would be the sh-ithole like the surrounding countries are; Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Afghanistan. Did China make the Tibetans lives better? Resounding yes.

But the question remains whether that is what the Tibetans want, and providing economic aid doesn't give an answer at all.
Bhutan e. g. is one of the poorest countries in the world on the sheet, but they don't bother being economical underdeveloped because it isn't part of their national agenda. Bhutan pursues a Buddhistic philosophy of happyness, economic strength in a Western understanding isn't important at all.
