Interesting that Ilan was one of the first counties to elect a DPP county government, sends a majority of DPP candidates to the legislature, and has stayed that way election after election. Why is your family the black sheep (pig?) of the county?
I would discount any rumors you hear from my employees.[/quote]Propaganda ministry flunkies do not have employees. Oh sorry, did I call you a flunky? I meant lackey. My bad. Paisay.
a) The gorilla is slowly evolving into Mecha Godzilla with lazer eyebeams and jet booster pack. And will crush Taipei and all our “girlie men” politicians at a whim. Or was that another capital city of Aisa?
b) Or the same ethnic group who came onto the island at different times, with slightly different experiences during last 100 years.

slowly is right! but they are too big and mean to ignore.
Lin Yi-shiung is a leader of the grassroot political movement and organized labor union in Kaohsiung. The mafia style execution of his family occurred in the 1980’s and is generally believe to have been caused by organized crime on Taiwan.
By then my nuclear family had already started their immigration process in the USA. They basically left shortly after ROC lost the seat in the UN and felt that the society was destabilizing.
Anyways back on topic Lin Yi-Shung is neither a victim of 228 nor “white terror.” He is just another political dissident during the KMT martial law era under Jiang Jing Guo.
Yilan was hardly the political nexus of Taiwan, just another rural community where people had simple views during Taiwan more turbulent years.
The only significant difference between WSR and BSR concept of history are the events of 1895 to 1945. Other than that they share the same history.
I sometimes wonder where is the shrine on Taiwan dedicated to all those Taiwanese that died unjustly under Japanese colonial rule. Where is the investigation of Japanese atrocities on Taiwan? Or are some Taiwanese family really proud that their ancestors are enshrined at Yasukuni Shrine for being such loyal subjects of the Emperor of Japan during WWII.
Perhaps the Japanese are too difficult of a political target on Taiwan. Might as well focus on those that actually did bring the USA alliance and political reform to Taiwan as the enemy of the state.
Well gee, in that world of opportunity that you tell me CKS brought to Taiwan, with his defeat of the Japanese and all, how could such a thing exist? After all, KMT made economic success available to all those intelligent and able, so how could an educated WSR family be poor? Unless they were waiting for someone to push the cake a little closer to their mouths so they could eat it…
