The Martyred Spirits of Democracy Preside Over Taiwan 228 Holy Mountain

The Martyred Spirits of Democracy Preside Over Taiwan 228 Holy Mountain

2009, June 4th, rain and gusts awash in abundance…
The Chinese people crave democracy.
1912, the Manchurian Ching Dynasty expired.

Sun Yet-San established the Nationalist government.
Yet, the Chinese folks, some died, others fled;
All the same, unable to escape the fate of “despotism and dictatorship.”

Authoritarian Capitalists – Demons Everywhere

Authoritarian Capitalists – Demons Everywhere

So long as no discussions of democracy, human rights, liberty,
Major American multinationals,
Will own total business advantages in
China.

Hence,
Eye-popping joint-ventures were signed.
Chinese Communist’s leadership style of autocrats-cum-enterprise solidified.
Accomplice of anti-liberty, democracy, human rights they become.

Wu Poh-hsiung: Tears, Just Desserts, Or the Simple Inevitable Slap in the Face?

One can almost feel sorry for Wu Poh-hsiung as he steps down or is pushed off the stage as Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairman by Ma Ying-jeou. I say almost, but that is as far as it goes. Wu is one of those strange Hakka who have a rightful place to be masters in their own land of Taiwan, but have given it up to be a second class citizen in the KMT. Why? It seems that such would rather settle for the guaranteed crumbs and secure lower status provided by the KMT than enter the competitive world of finding principles on which they can build their lives and living those principles.

President or puppet

How do you tell the difference between a president of a young democracy enacting progressive change and a political puppet of the powers that be? To answer this question, look no further than Taiwan’s “President” Ma Ying-jeou as he stops over in Seattle on his way home from a visit to Central America.

Taiwan, Asia's Supposed Voldemort, That-Which-Must-Not-Be-Named


Shades of Harry Potter, but the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) continues to place Taiwanese in the Chamber of Secrets. Secrets? Yes and we are talking about more than just Ma Ying-jeou's refusal to provide any transparency on ECFA, the mythical savior to salvage his failed economic policies. As he gives the farm away, Ma wants Taiwanese to blindly trust his last ditch speculation. No the greater secrets we are talking about are the way KMT leaders enter into discourse with China. Whenever the subject of the nation state of Taiwan comes up, it is treated like the Voldemort of Asia, "That-Which-Must-Not-Be Named."

A statement by China’s Taiwan Affairs Office spokesperson Fan Liqing (范麗青) that the future of Taiwan should be decided by “all Chinese people” sparked furious responses across the nation from activists, politicians and private citizens who say the future of Taiwan can only be decided by Taiwanese.

“The remarks made by the Chinese government are no different from masturbation,” Sunflower movement leader Lin Fei-fan (林飛帆) said on his Facebook. “It’s ironic that the Chinese Communist Party [CCP] says Taiwan’s future should be decided by ‘the Chinese people,’ when ‘the Chinese people’ [in China] have been stripped of the right to choose their government.”
