Taiwan value is Taiwan first not China, people enjoy freedom of speech, democracy, liberty and justice, not dictatorship with unlimited terms of presidency. Those who support, echo and endorse the one China principle are against Taiwan value.
There is a saying in Taiwan of incompetency “after three bites still not seeing the meat filling” means a people impressive only in appearance to appear better than he is. If that person is just a plain individual nothing wrong and none will get hurt. But if he is a governor of a state then all his people will be suffered.
Laurence Peter said, "Work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence. But, in time, every post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out." A governmental official must be a right person at the right position. Sometimes a good manager won’t be a successful CEO, and a good CEO won’t be a good chairman of a company. Peter’s principle is a good tool to examine the top level of Taiwan government to see how competent they are.
In 1945 while WWII just ceased fire, the alliestried to figure out what was the real intension of Taiwan people to form an independent country or recognized a citizen of China. At that time those Taiwanese elites such as Lin Xiantang (林獻堂), Tsai Peihuo (蔡培火), Chiang Wei-shui (蔣渭水) mistook Chinese government would help Taiwan for future self-governing, so they worked closely with ROC government and gave up to exercise the self-determination rights as Korean people strongly asked for independence. It ended up Japan only renounced all right, title and claim to Formosa and the Pescadores in the San Francisco Peace Treaty Article 2-b, and recognized the independence of Korea, renounces all right, title and claim to Korea, including the islands of Quelpart, Port Hamilton and Dagelet under Article 2-a.
A single slip may cause everlasting sorrow, the misjudgment made by those Taiwanese elites at that time trapped Taiwan into endless troubles that we are even facing today. Fortunately, Mr. John Dulles had foreseen the potential problem of Taiwan’s identity, that China, neither ROC nor PRC named as the recipient of Taiwan’s sovereignty. Instead, the USMG was named as the principal occupying power of Taiwan.
It is a shame that sixty-seven years gone by since the signature of SFPT, Taiwan is still ruled by the ROC government especially the incumbent ruling party DPP formed by native grassroots elites. Though the US Congress constituted the Taiwan Relation Act in 1979 clearly informed Taiwan people that the US government de-recognized ROC and only recognized the governing authorities on Taiwan, Taiwan people kept electing the president of ROC anddared not to claim it as Taiwan President.
In order to campaign for the 2020 presidential election of ROC, DPP willing to compromise with Taipei mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) for his betray of Taiwan value. Ko has repeated promoted one family hood for both sides of Taiwan strait and they are the same life community. He allowed PRC flag flying all over his city Taipei but restricted any symbol flag of Taiwan, connivedpro-unified party members punching people without penalty, tore down the booth of pro-independent and did not touch those booth of pro-unification.
Four years ago, Ko identified him self as the white power, a dark green favors of Taiwan independence but now he is totally different echoing whatever the PRC voiced and promoted the united front. It is surprised that DPP decision makers hesitated to take action against him for his betrayal because of afraid that their candidate may score number three the last one in Taipei mayoral election also naively to expect that Ko will not jump into the 2020 presidential election of ROC. What message has DPP delivered to Taiwan people, a party has no guts to fight? If all these assumptions are true, how sadit is.
Please don’t forget the water that bears the boat is the same that swallows it. Please don’t underestimate people’s wills, mistook that they will always support whatever a native grassroots government’s decision. If they favor for apro-Chinese politician such as KoP, voters will reject him. The wise man knows he knows nothing, the fool thinks he knows all. Please bear in mind the political stage shifts so quickly that whatever a Politian decided will be soon examined in history. Is Ko a competent mayor? Will he be a competent president? Please don’t fall into the same mistakes that Taiwanese elites made in 1945 leaving endless troubles to their future generations.
A political party must hold a clear goal and policy for their followers. Why DPP will make way humble to a pro-China politician just because of they might losein the mayoral election? Why not also treat him courtesy for the presidential election because DPP might also lose in the game? Please insist to defend theTaiwan value not counting votes winning or losing. Once you fight for justice, fight for people to defend liberty and democracy then people will work closely with you to cast their votes for Taiwan value.
