Trump is right, if for wrong reason

The US is all abuzz about US president-elect Donald Trump’s 10-minute phone call with President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文).

Surprise of surprises! Trump did one thing right, even if perhaps for the wrong reason. Yet, how unforgivingly the US media and its pundit journalists have lashed out at him for it. The US is shaking in its boots for fear the phone call will offend China.


Groundbreaking Call: Tsai, Trump talk of defense, economics

President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) and US president-elect Donald Trump spoke over the telephone on issues relating to improving the economy and strengthening national defense, the Presidential Office said yesterday.


KMT confirms ex-Chinese official for post

The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) on Thursday confirmed that it is to hire a consultant who was a Chinese official tasked with pursuing the nation’s unification with China.

KMT Central Policy Committee director Alex Tsai (蔡正元) said that former deputy general secretary of China’s Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits (ARATS) Wang Xiaobing (王小兵) will be hired as a consultant for the party’s Sun Yat-sen Memorial Library Foundation.

Former president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) was summoned for questioning by the Taipei District Prosecutors’ Office yesterday on charges of breaching confidentiality laws.


Biased civil servants act as quislings for the KMT

There are three living former presidents in Taiwan, and they belong to different political parties. Each of them attempted to change the “status quo” at the end of their presidency by redefining relations between Taiwan and China. They each have different opinions on the performance of President Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) administration.


Moral dimensions of human rights

Human rights have always been contested. In particular, critics have often denounced their lack of a theoretical foundation, but human rights can be theoretically legitimized, albeit in an indirect way.

However, first: What are human rights? They are rights for all human beings, regardless of their biographical backgrounds and affiliations. One main function is to protect citizens from discrimination and abuse of political power; there are also social and economic human rights.

President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) must seek public consensus on the development of cross-strait ties as Taipei-Beijing relations spread into more political areas, some European experts on cross-strait affairs said in interviews with the Taipei Times.

Dafydd Fell, senior lecturer of the department of political and international studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, said Ma needs to be very cautious on the pace of liberalizing cross-strait relations.
