The United Nations has backlashed against all the ridiculous appeals of the Taiwan Independence advocates . . . . . now Taiwan’s data is listed directly as a Province of the PRC.

Well, you say . . . . in fact this has been going on for some time . . . . yes maybe so, but it points to the FACT that Taiwan independence is a dead issue on the world stage. The answer is “No.”
Taiwan is not a sovereign country. The sooner the Taiwan independence advocates get that through their head, the better. It doesn’t matter if you have referenda twice a day, every day of the year, you cannot change the fact that Taiwan is not a sovereign country, and it is not recognized as a sovereign country by the world community.
In fact, if it were not for the USA, this entire island would have been seized by the commies long ago. Oh, yes! That is the answer! Become an overseas territory of the USA!!! Some people are advocating that now.
Yes . . . . that is it! There are two choices for Taiwan: (1) Become an overseas territory of the USA, and let the USA handle all your “national defense” matters . . . . so you would be a self governing territory, something like Puerto Rico in the early 1900’s, -or- (2) Become annexed to Mainland China . . . . .
Yes, those are the two choices as I see it for the future of Taiwan. Taiwan independence is a dead issue. At the present time it is impossible.
If I were you, I would go for the first option . . . . and the way to start is just to renounce the fiction that “October 25th is Retrocession Day” . . . . . yes, throw that ridiculous piece of historical and legal nonsense out the window . . . . . and you might find that everything else falls into place very nicely. You are still under the administrative authority of the USA from the post WWII period!
Yes, and that is mentioned in the post-war treaty too.
I seem to recall that this general line of reasoning was discussed in some threads on this website before . . . . but I can’t seem to find those threads now. Considering the established position of the United Nations (which neither you nor I have any ability to change, and which none of the Taiwan Independence advocacy groups have any ability to change, and which none of the ridiculous groups who go to New York every year to protest in front of the United Nations have any ability to change . . . . ) there are only the two active options as I have stated above for Taiwan’s future. (I don’t consider “maintaining the status quo” as an active type of option . . . . it just means you will be swallowed by the PRC at some point.)
Taiwan is not qualified to join the United Nations, because it is not a country! In fact, Taiwan was never a member of the UN before either. The Republic of China was a member of the UN, and it was representing Mainland China. Technically, it was not representing Taiwan. It was representing CHINA. And as soon as the UN decided that the PRC was the legitimate government of CHINA, of course the ROC (a government in exile on Taiwan) was kicked out!!! See . . . . that makes perfect sense because “October 25, 1945 was not Taiwan Retrocession Day.” There is a serious problem with all the thinking of the Taiwanese people, including the DPP, and that is that they have totally misinterpreted the meaning and significance of October 25, 1945 . . . . . hence, they feel that the world community is MISTREATING TAIWAN . . . . . but in fact, this is not true!!!
If you discard the nonsense that October 25, 1945, was “Retrocession Day” then all of the history of the last 60 years falls neatly into place. The Taiwan Relations Act views the government of Taiwan as the “Taiwan governing authorities” . . . . . and delegates Taiwan to the status of sub-sovereign foreign state equivalent. It all makes sense.
Taiwan, wake up!!
