Nonsense. Lots of kids entered school speaking no Mandarin. And many countries have school systems that are able to teach in different languages.
It doesn't have to be the only reason kids were beaten. But let me make it clear to you: I am not Chinese so refusing to use logic will not make your argument seem better to me.
Glad you admit the first generation of wsr were thieves.
Actually if you look at history it took Taiwan 20 years to catch up to where they had been in the 40s before the KMT arrived.
No, there are very Hoklo centered factions within the party. In any case, they are by far the more modern, rational and progressive of the parties. DPP policy is that citizenship should belong to people who identify with Taiwan (and of course those who were born here). Under Ma, citizenship belongs to those who claim ancestry from the Yellow Emperor.
Let me ask you this: what other modern democratic party in the world still worships an authoritarian leader? What other democratic country still has memorials to a former authoritarian leader?
Why can't the KMT modernize?
