Truth

《时代》杂志驻中国记者Simon Elegant刚从青海回到北京,在博客上简单写了青海见闻,发了几张照片。他说,节日之后那里氛围很紧张,许多族人甚至没有举行任何庆祝活动,以纪念去年发生在邻省首府的事。他说,一般族人认为那次有上千同胞遇难,流亡Government认为有数百同胞遇难,官方则认为有19人遇难,其中多数是无辜汉人。究竟谁的数据更可靠?Elegant的话一语中的:

Whatever the truth it's what the ordinary Tibetans believe--and the rage it inspires--that counts.”

I hope there's a way to "control" what the Tibetans believe, and I'm pretty sure Censorship is not the way to do that.
