Why are the Buddhists in the Tibetan areas of China so poor? Because as many one third of the men, instead of doing what young people elsewhere do: leave the countryside and go and work in the cities so as to provide for their parents in their old age; opt instead to be a burden on their community for the rest of their lives. The monks are just about as useless as you can get. They lead such sheltered pampered lives that the thought of meaningful work terrifies them. They are good for nothing layabouts who kid themselves on that everything they do, every breath they take benefits all sentient beings. This what allows them to scrounge off the women and old people without a trace of conscience. But the parties over. The people are no longer willing or able to support these parasites in their lives of idleness. The thought of having to disrobe and work in a car factory in Shanghai or Beijing fills them with such horror that they would rather die.
