Today's award for post-modern intellectual schizophrenia goes to the protesters who put these signs up on the Golden Gate Bridge. Now it may be the right thing morally to allow Tibet to rule itself, but you aren't going to get one world / one dream, out of allowing minority groups to split away, establish its own nation with its own language and its own theocracy.

It should have read: "Many Worlds, Many Dreams, free Tibet". Then the message would at least have been consistent, but perhaps no longer post-modern.

Tibet and Taiwan are in the same position. Neither can gain complete independence in the eyes of the government of China, but both want their freedom to govern the way they want. It seems to me that these political activitists should be focusing more on helping China to reform, than on pulling Tibet out. If China were to become democratic, Tibet would have no need to go independent.
