Taiwan Tati Cultural and Educational Foundation

The missed power of a name

While the nation reveled in Taiwanese athletes’ outstanding performance at the Taipei Summer Universiade, the legislature on Thursday passed amendments to the National Sports Act (國民體育法).

While the long-overdue legislation has been touted as a big step toward improving the nation’s sporting environment for the development of athletes and enforcing accountability and financial transparency of sports governing bodies, the Democratic Progressive Party’s (DPP) performance has left many people shaking their heads.

Members of the pro-Taiwanese independence group From Ethnos to Nation (FETN, 蠻番島嶼社) yesterday said their right to freedom of expression was violated by law enforcement officials when one of their members was roughed up and arrested for displaying a banner bearing the word “Taiwan” at the Taipei Summer Universiade’s closing ceremony on Wednesday

It is also a move that, for Taiwanese, is not only unwelcome, but pernicious.


China and India face challenging times ahead

A closer look at many potential conflict zones in East and South Asia reveals an alarming trend of transience and instability. This is particularly true when a nuclear and militaristic North Korea looms, threatening its neighbors and beyond.

We are witnessing what British journalist Gideon Rachman calls a troublesome process of “Easternization,” a dramatic shift of power and wealth from the West to Asia in the early 21st century.


Hung needs to read up on history

Former Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) certainly got a number of things wrong in her comments on Taiwan’s history (“Former KMT chairwoman Hung slams ‘desinicization,’” Aug. 27, page 3).

At a forum commemorating Ming-era warlord Cheng Cheng-kung (鄭成功, also known as Koxinga) she criticized President Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) administration for substituting “Cheng’s governance of Taiwan under the Ming Dynasty” with the “Cheng Dynasty” in school textbooks.
