Alberta Views;Dec2011, Vol. 14 Issue 10, p8
The author reflects on the issue of human emotion, particularly happiness which depends on the right social conditions. She argues that Communist Chinese who invaded Tibet, razed monasteries, and burned artifacts of Buddhist culture were in line with their goal of creating a happier world but did not know that every killing increased human misery. The author suggests that it is better to appreciate life, show respect, and do what is right so that people would also be treated the same.
