'They killed my brother in front of my own eyes,'' says Fatima, who at age 20 is younger than her well-polished M-16. ''They took his body and threw it away somewhere. The hardest part is that I have never found it.'' Fatima joined the widows' battalion in the face of rapidly escalating abuses by Indonesian soldiers. ''They terrorize us more often now,'' she says.

Potala Palace of the Dali Lama in Tibet Budhism, like any religion (or any group allowed total power), will abuse power when given free reign. Any group given complete control over a nation-state without being answerable to the population will naturally abuse that power.
Look at Tibet during the rule of the Dali Lama. Tibet was a theocratic state in which the budhist monk were the ruling class and the only other class being peasants. The peasant were there only to serve the monks. During this time, the ruling monks employed torture, repressed free expression, and controlled every facet of daily life.
The budhist monks who ran Tibet were simply concerned with retaining their previliged place in society. The supernatural or spiritual should never be allowed a strong voice in running a nation. Reason and proof should be employed by those running a nation and the people of that state should always be given the opportunity to remove their leaders when it is necessary.
