Little Tibet: The Third Way

Tibetan Political Review, October 02, 2013

Mila Rangzen, a Tibetan American who formerly served with the US Armed Forces as an active duty member published an article “Little Tibet: The Third Way” in two parts. In the first part of the article, he criticised the genuine autonomy from China introduced by the Dalai Lama and Central Tibetan Administration and termed it “unrealistic”, “failure”, “unachievable” and “mission impossible”. Mila wrote that the genuine autonomy will shake the foundation of the CCP where the other minorities could also ask for more rights as demand in the middle way approach adding that granting genuine autonomy to less than 6 million people over a vast territory will cause numerous economic and political losses for China. He mentioned that there is no proof in print or on audio or video that Deng Xiaoping proposed anything less than anything less than independence. He claimed since the demonstrations of 1987 till today’s inside Tibet, there have no experiences of a desire for genuine autonomy. He concluded that China is militarily, economically, politically powerful as no government in the world finds the moral strength or the political dividend to support genuine autonomy.

Proposing a article “a realistic plan” as an alternative which might have a chance of approval by the CCP, he recommended the demand for ‘Genuine Autonomy’ for Dotoe, Domey and Utsang (Tibet’s traditional three provinces) as instead demands for ‘mini Autonomy’ for a landmass amassing 100, 000 sq km or (4 percent of the 2.5 million square km of Tibet) around Kongpo, Lhasa in the North West and Arunachal Pradesh in the South East”. He states ‘Little Tibet’ is rich in minerals, flora, fauna, marine life, air life, fresh water with moderate climate all the year round except a little cold in winter but certainly not colder than the freezing Dharamsala winter.

Mini autonomy he said often a high level of autonomy similar to “Hong Kong, or even Ladakh in India.” will allow China to exploit the natural resources of other parts of Tibet and PRC as other Tibetans to relocate. He said this proposal will ensure to preserve identity, language, freedom, Buddhism and culture.
