The development of the modern scientific method, however, informs humanity that this attitude is mistaken, and that regardless of just how ‘perfect’ each cultural expression happens to believe itself to be, there is always another equally important (or impressive) cultural expression waiting just around the evolutionary corner! Throughout pre-modern times, emerging cultures, (regardless of their technical or architectural achievements), were relative affairs that could be toppled with just the right amount of pressure applied to the correct place! China’s long history of continuous and impressive cultural expression is no exception to this rule!
Once the ‘Darling of the West’ – Aung San Suu Kyi has proven to be something of a disappointment! She received every accolade, reward and
Takeshi Noda was a Junior Officer of the Japanese Imperial Army and a Class C War Criminal. During 1937 – before and after the capture of Nanjing – both he and Mukai Toshiaki held a horrific killing game! Each challenged the other to a competition using the long, curved and single-edged Japanese ‘Katana’ sword – to see who could behead 100 Chinese civilians the quickest! Takeshi Noda eventually won the competition – and extended the required number to 105 victims! The Japanese murder of Chinese people was so popular that Tokyo newspapers regularly ran articles eulogising the martial arts skills and bravery of those doing the murdering!
During this meeting, Xi Jinping encouraged him to study with diligence, practice with a pure intent, uphold the last wish of the 10th Panchen Lama, uphold the Buddhist concept of equality and compassion for all living beings, actively promote the adaptation of Tibetan Buddhism to the reality of a Socialist Society, and strive to become a person with profound Buddhist attainments and deep spiritual roots! Xi Jinping explained that a true Living Buddha is loved by all Tibetan Buddhist monastics and Tibetan lay people – and must strive to be loved by all the people of the world!
This means that incorrect assumptions are made premised upon false, incomplete and inaccurate information. Within Chinese Buddhism, the Buddha was born around 1029/28 BCE and died around 949/48 BCE. However, in Thailand this has all been reduced by around 500-years so that the Buddha is now assumed to have been born in 545 BCE and passed away in 465 BCE.
Just as Younghusband’s racism is played-down, the racist misrepresentation of Chinese and Tibetan people is played-up! Westerners are always playing upon the idea of divide and conquer – and French is no exception to this rule. Within China today, the Chinese and Tibetan people are Comrades and very close ethnic groups. It is only within the racist Western mind that they are imagined to be a) apart, and b) antagonistic to one another! The Pro-Tibetan Movement grew out of the 14th Dalai Lama’s tutelage under Nazi German advisors during and after WWII. Again, a reality ignored by people like French who have been duped by the CIA – which has ‘employed the Dalai Lama for decades! What this book does is convincingly demonstrate that a ‘cult-mentality’ can be utilised to write a narrative history which possess the power to mislead as it reveals! Just like Francis Younghusband – Patrick French knows nothing about the genuine history or culture of Tibet – despite both men having actually visited Tibet!
