My response to Carpe Diem #1207 Non-Resistance
In this episode Chèvrefeuille is taking a closer look at the character of the Tibetan people. He reminds us that some time in the early fifties of the last century, China annexed Tibet. Only a small group of strong monks and some foreigners were on hand to defend the country. The Tibetans aren’t a violent race, so China could annex the country without any resistance and Tibetans showed no anger: non-resistance is their power, together with their smiles, stronger than any weapon.
