[/color][quote="BeachBoy"]On the MRT on my visit, I met a young lady in her early 20s. Her parents worked in finance. Her attitude was reunification was a financial win for the island. Talk about historical amnesia....[/quote] Generally speaking, Waishen youths are politically indoctrinated at an much younger age than native Taiwanese. They are also more open(outspoken) about their views. There are family tales of the Chinese civil wars in their social circle, tales about uncles and aunts, and family friends holding various historical positions of the roc. I grew up with friends mostly from Waishen background, and this my impression. As early as in my junior high, some of my friends indulged in showing my pictures of the 1937 nanking massacre from the school library (those were fake photos from 通州事件) As for me, I did not become vocal about my political views until late 20s, just a couple of years ago.
