I don't know how I feel about using the Dalai Lama to sell products (do they give him royalty money??)
But even worse is that it seems like there is no one anywhere who doesn't bow down to the ccp! :toilet:

Yes, even the Aussie government can't wait to kiss the PRC's nether regions these days, it seems. Everybody's still afraid of their economic clout and is willing to avert their gaze from all sorts of behavior which in other countries would be deemed unacceptable. We will all pay the price some day.
