I think this is going a little overboard, even for China... Perhaps next they'll bring out legislation to curb the anti-social behaviour displayed by goblins, i dunno, i just hope to God that this ban won't stop the rebirthing process...

Source: Newsweek

In one of history's more absurd acts of totalitarianism, China has banned Buddhist monks in Tibet from reincarnating without government permission.

According to a statement issued by the State Administration for Religious Affairs, the law, which goes into effect next month and strictly stipulates the procedures by which one is to reincarnate, is "an important move to institutionalize management of reincarnation."

Please research if this was actually a real Newsweek article or not. Maybe it was, but I don't want to take a freakshow website's word for it.

Edit: Actually, my bad, I just had to go through two freakshow websites to get to it. Apologies.

Yeah, sorry I had to put it through a 'freakshow' website, lol.. I just thought it was funny, heh

Not so funny. Apparently, the Chinese will be choosing the next Dalai Lama... Somehow I don't imagine him to continue his relief work if THEY choose who he's reincarnated as.

I thought China had already picked the new Dali Lama years ago.

I thought that happened around the same time a U.S. spy plane went down near China. Not that the two are connected I'm just trying to give a time frame.

Well, maybe they have. I just read on the posted link they could now choose the next Dalai Lama to be in succession. Either way it sucks. Somebody should send in their army to throw out the Chinese. Then we'd have another Iraq on our hands, because it'd probably be the US to do it. Then we'd probably have a world war, too. Which means there's nothing to do about it, at least not for us to do...

Damn, I hate this kind of world.

The only people who are likely to be able to do anything are the UN diplomats, if we dont want to start a war that is...

Yeah, but this IS the NWO-forum, and if the whole NWO-theory is true, then I seriously doubt the UN is going to do anything about the Chinese occupation of Nepal.
In fact, if the whole NWO-theory is true, then things are probably only going to go downwards from here on, in Nepal and everywhere else.

Bah. I'm seeing everything in black today. Sorry.
