I initially posted what i did because i am seeing a major contradiction in how things are run over there in China. On the one hand we see protesters in Tibet who want their country back who are demonstrating and speaking out against the hypocracy of a government that doesnt give a sh!t about them,and who wants to quell any notion of that country wanting to regain its soveriegnty, and then we see the overwhelming humanitarian efforts of the chinese government to help its people recover and rebuild from a disaster such as this earth quake. We see major censorship on the world media trying to understand what is going on in Tibet and then the doors swing wide open for the world media in Sichuan. Dont get me wrong i think it is terrible what has happened over there in Sichuan and i want nothing more than to see the people regain themselves and rebuild. But when i say that it was Kharma i dont mean it in the context of "ha ha ha look what happened to you". I am merely pointing out a rare coincidence of events that has lead up to this point. Would the earthquake still have happened if Tibet had its sovereignty and the Dalai Lama was running his country? Maybe so. Who knows. Cant really say what would have happened, cant reverse time to find out, we can only comment on what is happening now and what has lead up to now.
But i will concede here. I was innapropriate, apologies Gene.
Dude, tragedy's that befall a people can't be viewed as "karma" (or anything else for that matter) for what their government does.
If that was the case, what would we call 9/11 or Katrina or the fires in the states and so on.
What did the people of Indonesia do to "deserve" the Tsunami that killed over 250k people?
Silly to think that way.
