    You do realize that 95 percent of Tibetans were serfs and slaves who served feudal lords before the arrival of the Chinese communists, right? I’m sure they’re just dying to return to independence.

      And you do realise that a people do not automatically revert to the state they were in the last time they were independent, right?

      If Scotland were to gain independence I highly doubt they’d revert to their 17th Century feudal state.
