Oh no. You know what this goes to show? Maybe Tibetans shouldn’t feel surprised at being oppressed. Even those who loved her more than they loved themselves have not be safe in the motherland. No surprise also that this would be a plausible consequence of a reunion with former Formosa. Nothing gained, nothing learnt from history, except more effective methods of extinguishing non-conformity.
So what now? We stand by and watch it all happen again, maybe on YouTube first this time. We say ‘never again’ to wars and holocausts, then shrug our shoulders as we hear screams echo down the corridor and monstrous shadows dart across the wall. Did we learn in our childhood how to deny that other people lead worthwhile lives too? Money protects you, and money sells you down the river to damnation.
