Old Tibet not all it’s cracked up to be
Michael Parenti on the Dalai Lama
Debt slavery on steroids
How would you like to be responsible for the debts of your great grandfather?
That was the case in Old Tibet.
The average person couldn’t make a move without getting taxed for it.
Land ownership was limited to a handful of families and monasteries. Everyone else was a property-less serf tied to a land owner.
It’s nonsense to say Tibet was a peaceful place without an army. There was an internal army set up to keep the serfs in line.
“Noncritical adulation” – Whenever you see that, it’s a good idea to dig a little deeper.
