    Let's just be honest. The human paradigm is driven by economics. Not that is should be but people clearly have elevated their worship of materialism far above spirituality, and even morality must take a back seat.

    Perhaps if Tibet was a Christian nation and if the U.S knew about the vast amount of resources in Tibet back in 1949 then just maybe our response would have been different. Now, with the Chinese sitting on billions in U.S. treasuries and with Americans buying up as much "made in China" crap as they can the situation for Tibet is rather bleak. The U.S. pays lip service regarding human rights, listens to the Dalai Lama and on occasion puts out a statement that "we are deeply concerned on what's happening in Tibet", but that's as far as it goes.

    If most people knew and had to watch what has happened in Tibet since the Chinese invasion they'd be shocked beyond comprehension, and then they'd proceed to do nothing.

    This is the sad reality we seem to live in today.

    Dalai Lama is right. Bush's policy only created hatred by using violence to wrong people. The problem is Bin Laden's corrupted destructive emotion. I am sure Obama will pin point on this issue and hopingly find a solution without violence. He is on a right track by exploring a new energy and liberate the world from the energy wars. He should take an alternative drastic strategy such as an open debate with Bin Laden. Let the public expose to his view. The developed capitalistic system also has problems and Obama is willing to change them. Constructive strategy such as planting crops and secure livelihood of the people is a shorter route to untangle this problem. Human society must practice and exercise what they learned from the past mistakes that the violence is not the solution to either system and the TRUTH will always reveal in the future.

    My philosophy of Power Balance in my pioneering Universal psychology of Prevention, Health & Excellence I wrote in my 9 books in one year in 1994 as a Spirit Mother of the world I teach step by step balance of powers between cognition and emotion and thus a balanced whole self that is controlable and yet not a robot! Dalaie Lama is right! I have revolutionized and taught pioneering knwoledge to a dead world that had no compassion and in it, leaders had nothing new or wisdom of the old to say! Following the dead for year after year in every walk of life had blineded the world to the livign words of wisdom and the faith in humanity had died away!
