I don't find it problematic to let people assimilate into the dominant culture, as long as they are willing to do so.
But, Tibetan people are not the case. It is risky to give free rein to "multiculturalism" as I suggested in a previous post, but forcible assimilation can cause even more disastrous outcomes - the extinction of distinct cultures.

Do you think people will be still hopeful after the great leader dies?
What I fear is that younger Tibetans revolt against the Chinese government in a large scale, which will give the government a convenienct reason to crack down on Tibetans.

They need external supporters such as you and me.
I don't know if we really can be their help, but at least it's more imaginable that Tibetans win autonomy supported by people outside
