My favorite passage in the speech Inner Peace and Human Rights is the first paragraphy.
"Peace, in the sense of the absence of war, is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain of torture inflicted on a prisoner of conscience. It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighboring country. Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free." He explains the peace, he explains that a lasting peace for nations and for individuals depends on a sense of justice and opportunity. Also, He point out peace is more than just the absence of war.
Why does the Chinese government consider the Dalai Lama a threat and a criminal?
The reason that chinese government consider the Dalai Lama a threat is beacuse Chineses government mantains that the Dalai Lama wants an independent Tibet. Also, Chinese governement this he is the single greatest threat to the unity of the Chinese nation.
"The Dalai Lama has been said to have "the face of a man and the heart of a beast" and is "a wolf in monk's robes." These words are not from some backwater cadre; rather a spokesperson of the Chinese central government in Beijing and the senior official of the Tibet Autonomous Region spoke them."
