reeBeacon at 10-19-2017 : "China’s Xi Jinping Slams the Door on Taiwanese Appeals for Independence.".   Washington Post at 10-18-2017: "Mr. Xi’s biggest applause line was a vow to 'never allow anyone. . . at any time or in any form, to separate any part of Chinese territory from China.'  That would include...Taiwan." (in 19th CPC Speech).   Spiegel Germany, 1-9-2017, Global times of China: "There is no room for negotiations" ("Es gibt keinen Raum für Verhandlungen").   Le Monde diplomatique of France, Mai 2016, depicted Taiwan  (click for details) as a trembling sweating rat (or mouse), turning its back on an approaching huge cat (China), lifting high the banner "$O$" .    New York Times at  11-4-2017, the Pentagon report, May 2017: China’s military modernization has “eroded or negated many of Taiwan’s historical advantages (geography and the US support) ” in deterring a potential attack.  ..                                                   

The People's Republic of China (PRC) has identified that Taiwan (the Republic of China ) as part of its territory and its most important core interest, since the Kuomintang (Nationalists) government retreated to the island in 1949 following defeat in the Chinese civil war.  China has vowed to reunite this "breakaway province" by force if necessary and has steadily increased pressure on Taiwan.   Under China's political development and strengthening its trade ties,  Taiwan is diplomatically isolated, has only 20 formal relation countries till 2017, more may be in trouble any time.  On the other hand, China took the strategy " Allowance of economic benefits to Taiwan" so that Taiwanese people may have higher tendency toward unification with China,  since then, China became Taiwan's leading trading partner.   Taiwanese understood this interdependence is unavoidable, but overdependence is risky.   Le Monde diplomatic of France, Mai '16, reported the economies of both sides were complementary, now compete each other.   Taiwanese are gradually being excluded from the Chinese chain of production and supply. (Mais les économies des deux rives, qui étaient complémentaires, entrent désormais en concurrence. Les entreprises taïwanaises sont progressivement exclues de la mise en place d’une chaîne de production et d’approvisionnement chinoise ... )

The United States,  Taiwan's only ally, really enjoy its policy "strategic ambiguity", ―  “acknowledges” there is one China and Taiwan is part of China, but has never officially “recognized” Taiwan as part of China.  The US Congress passed a law TRA to commit the US to defend Taiwan's sovereignty, and provide necessary defensive  services.  Many countries seem welcome this ambiguity.  Japan's Yomiuri Shimbun (読売新聞), Opinion, 6-22-2017 stated the US is the key to keep the peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait ('米国は台湾の防衛力強化を担っており、台湾海峡の平和と安定のカギを握る'。).   However, the New York Times at 11-4-2017 pointed out that the US military "intervention now would confront a more potent Chinese military",  Taiwan’s historical advantages (geography and the US support)  in deterring a potential attack” has been “eroded or negated .     Taiwan president Tsai said at 12-29-2017 that Chinese leader was not supposed to attack Taiwan ("應該不是決策思考範圍內"), she corrected herself at 1-22-2018 in SETN that the possibility of a war won't be ruled out.    The United Daily, 11-12-2017, analyzed the routine pattern "USA and China jointly control Taiwan" may be changed in the future.

Today's Taiwan has the 7th largest economy in Asia,  and the 22nd-largest economy in the world.  Taiwan's mean wealth per adult, at USD 172,847, is close to that of Germany USD185,175, France USD244,400.   Taiwan was one of the world's top producers of computer technology, relying upon importation of key components and advanced technology from the US and Japan,  Taiwan's high-tech sector is falling behind for lacking of key tech. and its low pay to attract university-educated talent.  Taiwan's GDP per capita retreated successively in recent years.   In contrast, China's GDP in 2016 is about 23 times the number of Taiwan's, five Chinese provinces topped Taiwan already.   Economic experts warned that Taiwan will fall into “middle-income” limbo (15-30 countries will catch up with it) in the next 10 years if it fails to deal with “three evil hands”, the law, environmental assessments, and Taiwan-China relations.

The ROC on Taiwan, has its own constitution, independently elected president and military forces, However, Taiwan's image and brand personality suffered having benefits by any means,  and some principal human rights problems, including:

 Exploitation of  foreign workers,  official corruption,  some media self-censorship with regard to China, vote buying, etc (USA Country Reports on Human Rights practices, March 3, 2017).

●  Philippine President Duterte ... blaming Taiwan-based organised crime behind all this drug traffic... for using his country as a shipping hub. (Reuters, 9-27-2017, The Straits Times, 9-29-2017)   Duterte: Triad supplying illegal drugs to PH is based in Taiwan, not China (inquirer.net, 9-26-2017).  Taiwan was already reduced to be a 'kingdom' of producing narcotic drugs, (United Daily, headline news, 11-2-2017).   Being a major drug transit center & a major drug exporting country, part of Taiwanese government refused to improve this issue. (UDN Opinion, 11-6-2017, The China Times, head-page & Focus, 4-4-2017, The Liberty Times, 5-12-2017).

●  Taiwan politics belongs to corporations (not the people) and is controlled by the political parties (Foreign Policy, 2015).  Now it seems hard to keep Taiwan's skin-deep democracy ... the people's "livelihood" was sacrificed for politics ... (United Daily News, Opinion, 3-7-2017 ).

●  Taiwan is notorious for its fraud crimes all over the world (CTV evening news, 12-14-2017,  EBC TV, 4-9-2017,  UDN opinion, 12-24-2017).  Taiwan largely sees these telecom frauds/phone scammers as an asset rather than liability...  (quora, 4-16-2016).  It's not easy for Taiwan to clean its bad name of 'fraud-crime empire' because "Rome is not built in one day".  (Asia Association of Police Studies, secretary general, The China Times, 11-7-2017

 <The Diplomat> (4-14-2016) :  Taiwan's illegal fishing is 'out of control', GreenPeace criticized Taiwan gov. for knowing this issue but does little EU warned since 2015 Taiwan with a yellow card for illegal fishing, Taiwan has not improved this good enough, some small countries in Southern Asia did better than Taiwan.

●  Taiwan's justice ministry was insufficiently independent, public trust on Taiwan's judiciary system keeps falling down (USA Country Reports on Human Rights practices, 2016-2017, all media of Taiwan, 2015 ~ 2017).   Taiwan's public voice with a heavy heart  : The prosecutors should abide by the law too... don't be a political tool. (United Daily, opinion column, 12-16-2017) Taiwan's prosecutors admit usually following order to conclude legal cases.  ( The United Daily,  06-18-2016, head page news)     Taiwan's Minister of Judiciary and secretary of Justice Ministry issued progress report of judicial reform Public trust in judges is always low, the protection mechanism of lawsuit right is still not good enough (UDN 2-13-2018).

Taiwan is far behind to legislate against torture and other cruel.  (ref. to Apple Daily, headline, 12-9-2017)  Taiwan's opposition party vice presidential candidate, NTU professor Lin Ruey-Shiung, was subject to electromagnetic wave attacks (French AFP ,Dec. 1, 2011 , Thailand's Bangkok Post,  Dec. 3, 2011, Yahoo UK & Ireland, etc. ), Taiwan gov. denied this. 

State violence and white terror (product of state violence) return in Taiwan (United Daily, opinion, 12-21-2017, 12-27-2017).     Taiwan's Facebook "Green terror" suppressed free expression...... (Wikipedia 2017, The China Times, public opinion, 11-18-2017)

Taiwan is dishonest and 'cruel' trying to block or hide public-health news, e.g., poisoned eggs, PCV virus vaccine, and Bird-flu more than one time (1-2-2018 UDN, 2012 BBC news :  www.bbc.com/zhongwen/trad/chinese_news/2012/03/120304_taiwan_birdflu_investigate) ,  not to mention big issues.

Taiwan failed to (or did not spend enough efforts on) solve food-safety issue, professors and MDs advised eating at home.  (The China Times. 8-6-2016, <食品不安全的年代如何自保>, 2016, etc.)

●  The government has not well taken its fundamental responsibility of protecting the safety of people's life and property - why are there so many tall buildings located on the fault-zone? why are poor architectures everywhere on bad geologic grounds ? why are those shit-hole politicians doing nothing and ignoring urban renewal so as to risk millions of old houses and human beings ??   (full text: https://udn.com/news/story/11321/2974813 聯合報社論/斷層帶上何以建了那麼多高樓?  2-8-2018,  https://udn.com/news/story/7338/2977079 勿讓軟腳樓成坑殺人命陷阱 2-9-2018,  https://tw.appledaily.com/headline/daily/20180209/37928659花蓮 都更 爛政客   2-9-2018)

Taiwan declared crackdown on prostitution, only to turn into a country with world No.1 percentage of sex-related business consumers of all the adults. (Apple Daily, 12-25-2014 )  

Harvard professor Dr. Joseph Nye advised in 2010 that hard and soft power enable Taiwan to deal with China and expand its international space.  However, Taiwan's soft power was behind China and Asian's Japan, South Korea, Australia, Singapore, New Zealand, India, UAE.  Taiwan's military power was recently cut down by half and is in a state of low morale, Taiwan's administration made a core defense strategy to resist Chinese PLA for 2 weeks, and made assumption that then American sons and daughters will always risk their lives to protect our home.

Taiwan president Tsai : Food safety is one of biggest challenges to Taiwan / The China Times, 8-6-2016
 

The New York Times and The Economist (11.29.2014) comment a series of food safety scandals is one of few main factors causing the KMT, Taiwan's ruling party, has suffered one of its worst electoral defeats since Chiang Kai-shek and his forces fled to the island at the end of Chinese civil war in 1949.

 

The New York Times (9.8.2014): the new scandal  (Taiwan food-safety scare) shows that there is still not enough being done to eliminate lawbreaking production lines.

 

Apple Daily News (蘋果日報) 8-28-2015,  A2 Prime News Edition:

The incidence rate of Taiwanese people suffering colon/rectal cancer was ranked world No.1 , Taipei Medical University Hospital's director of surgeons expressed Taiwan's food scandals constantly happened in recent years, many black-heart tainted foods containing Carcinogen (cancer producer) is a factor causing high incidence rate.

Bloomberg BusinessWeek  (9.8.2014): Tainted Lard: China's Latest Food-Safety Scare Comes From Taiwan.  

 

BBC news (Nov. 19, 2013): A series of food safety scandals in Taiwan has hurt consumer confidence, and now there are worries they could dent the island's economic growth and damage tourism.  

 

The Economist (UK) commented :  Taiwan's former reputation as a reliable and safe food manufacturing country has been damaged... 

 

The China Times (Taiwan, Nov. 30, 2013) stated black-heart food, risks and traps are everywhere, and comments Taiwan government is short of will-power, ability, and resolution to combat illegal targets ...

 

    BBC , 6-6-2013 Taiwan is the only country in the world to import GM soy for eating ,

Taiwan imports pigs' food for human kinds in Taiwan

  WikiLeaks 2010 : Taiwanese people are friendly for Bio. tech. and are intend to buy GM label food, so the "Embassy" of a strong nation is planning to build a  Genetic Modification (GM) zone in Taiwan.
 In fact, it's a so called "national scandal" (the China Times, Mar. 29, 2013) that Taiwanese consumers generally do not fully know or don't care  the controversy of health risks caused by GM food.  Taiwanese government should urge everyone refusing to buy GM food. 
 About 99.5% of soy food products in Taiwan are imported, 90% of them are GM soy beans.

Nuremberg Code :  a set of research ethics principles for human experimentation set as a result of the subsequent Nuremberg trials at the end of the Second World War

  1.       Required is the voluntary, well-informed, understanding consent of the human subject in a full legal capacity.
  2.       The experiment should aim at positive results for society that cannot be procured in some other way.
  3.        It should be based on previous knowledge (like, an expectation derived from animal experiments) that justifies the experiment.
  4.        The experiment should be set up in a way that avoids unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injuries.
  5.        It should not be conducted when there is any reason to believe that it implies a risk of death or disabling injury.
  6.        The risks of the experiment should be in proportion to (that is, not exceed) the expected humanitarian benefits.
  7.        Preparations and facilities must be provided that adequately protect the subjects against the experiment’s risks.
  8.        The staff who conduct or take part in the experiment must be fully trained and scientifically qualified. 
  9.        The human subjects must be free to immediately quit the experiment at any point when they feel physically or mentally unable to go on.
  10.         Likewise, the medical staff must stop the experiment at any point when they observe that continuation would be dangerous.

! Taiwan, root out
all the ugly !!

 
   

    

 

   

a a survey to Taiwanese people since years ago  (in various versions)

 

To all the people:

 

According to Amnesty Int'l report years ago, "over half the world's government continue to use torture against their own citizens"

 

Is Taiwan a country which should be ranked latter half of the world ?

 

Taiwan had numerous lousy records of fooling Taiwanese and even the world, e.g., murdering American journalist 江南, making Taiwan white terror again, the latest one is trying to hide minor news about birds-flu at 1-2-2018 (BBC 2012 reported too).

 

This website is much better in credibility, reliability and objective degree than the mouthpiece of the government.

 

To accelerate Taiwan's reform, please provide with what you saw, knew or experienced about attacks or persecutions in the way of demonization, mouth of words, giving dog a name and hang it, murders ...... by the state apparatus.

 

Scary political climate for years has made Taiwanese very obedient, hope some may speak out this time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To the state apparatus:

 

Any rats doing cat's job, or cats with rat's genes in state apparatus should be

completely revealed and eradicated ! 

"Police" should be open as the day, not hiding at dark corner underground, doing & speaking sneaky things like a crime.

Bring everything to light ! Not keeping people mis-informed or half informed (worse than a lie) any more.

Obscurantism and avoiding admitting mistakes only prove rats' intention of repeating mistakes, as US Obama said.

 

 

 

  ps: straight-forward words pls. to avoid any mis-interpretations
