“Tibetans Burn for Their Faith and Freedom”

PJ Mooney has translated a post by Woeser about the ongoing self-immolation crisis in Tibet- the entire thing is worth a read, but this quote in particular struck me:

The Communist Party does not understand why this is happening. The despots only believe in guns and money. They not only have no faith themselves, they can’t even understand the power of faith to motivate acts of great selflessness.
