Live Encounters Magazine Volume 1 Dec 2014

Dr Lezlee Brown Halper in her insightful guest editorial says – “The flickering light in Tunis has become a beacon for the region offering direction even to Egypt in the midst of deeply troubling times. Hong Kong, now a festival of light, further illuminates the desperate trade-offs infusing authoritarian rule – how to balance public perception, authoritarian values and public security.  China is moving slowly, inexorably, reluctantly – toward greater openness.  We must hope this comes in time to preserve the unique Tibetan and Uighur cultures barely surviving under the PLA’s hob-nailed boot.” In the words of the Dalai Lama, “China has to go along with world trends. That’s democracy, liberty, individual freedom. China sooner or later has to go that way. It cannot go backward.”
