I find the American Dalai Lama cult pretty disturbing myself. Does that make me a Stalinist? No, I'm just appalled that people from the most economically developed country in the world would identify with a feudal despotism.

How anyone could think that the monastic dictatorship over Tibet should correspond to freedom is a mystery to me. -- Jim heartfield
