Gandhi and Mother Teresa have been exposed to be, well, jerks. And sometimes very bad jerks.
It’s time to take a skeptical look at the Dalai Lama. Is he a master of Buddhist selflessness and compassion or a master self-promoter who’d like to kick the Chinese out of Tibet in order to take the country back to its medieval ways? (Which, BTW, ain’t gonna happen.)
Tibet now has paved roads, running hot and cold water, flush toilets, and KFC. l’m no fan of China and their takeover of Tibet was brutal, but I wonder how many Tibetans really would prefer to go back to living under the Dalai Lama?
