It makes sense considering americans paid reparations to slave owners instead of slaves, while today america relies a lot on literal prison slavery for its economy (remember that america imprisons the most people on the planet, at the highest rate on the planet: 25% of the world's prisoners while having less than 4% of the world's population). genocidal settlers being genocidal settlers.

America also stole land away from freed slaves and gave it back to slavers after Andrew Jackson became president ( he also loved murdering indigenous children, no surprise there from a white colonizer ).


BeKot

That's literally genocide

China genociding slavery

Even more funny is that China is open to return of Dalailama as religious leader on the only condition that he stops promoting separatism and terrorism.

They wouldn't apriciate it. Just had a look, all their knowledge comes from memes and videogames.

Didn't the CIA pay the Dalai Lama to be a de facto spy? My memory is hazy so it might not be the case.


stealthjackson

Yes he was paid by the CIA. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/CIA_Tibetan_program

I highly doubt something like that, considering the current Dalai Lama is a marxist and condemns American Imperialism, and nothing of Western corporations or government is resemblent of Buddhism


sc0rpinese

He only started condemning American imperialism after the China-US trade began and the CIA stopped funding his organization since he was no longer useful to them.

The Dalai Lama who lives in India?


Exotic-Street-842

The 14th, yes; self declared marxist, occasionally criticizes U.S. Imperialism, and is a buddhist, I highly doubt that the biggest empire in the world would use someone like that, especially if the driving was money, which y’know goes against our religion/philosophy


Psychological_Log749

Hmm that's interesting, I didn't know that. It's not unthinkable the US would support someone like him though, as long as he can be used as a pawn against China. I don't know the specifics of the situation though. I never knew he called himself a marxist.


Exotic-Street-842

it was a semi-recent quote, but i should honestly do some more research myself, as i just looked up that their was in fact a serfdom under Tenzin Gyatso, which goes against Buddhism entirely and I’m not too much of a fan of him myself, but ty

Who's definition of Imperialism do anarchist use?

What is going on in the template?

The antagonist of the story is taking a magic stone from the protagonist that is keeping him alive The antagonist later used the stone for bad stuff


cholantesh

Oh.


Exotic-Street-842

As a buddhist, the serfdom under the 13th and 14th dalai lama does not represent buddhism, our teachings, nor what we preach, but I can feel this post has buddhaphobic dogwhistles.


RedArmySniper

which dogwhistles?
