He has his point of view, and I think that he is right as to the rigidity of teh vertical structures and lack of supervision. That he got right.
He is also right in terms of teh endemic “look down” on others, like the example he gives of singing teh praises of a racist icon in a Taiwanese textbook.
A certain prtion of Taiwan people, living abroad or in Taipei, in certain enclaves, think that whoever is elected, all te fighting between blacks and whites, that has nothing to do with them. They live in their bubble and will not be affected. Money protects them. This is that kind of thinking. That from their tower, all is fine cause they say so.
