I’d say members of the international community who get involved in a positive way are participating in the society and contributing to it.[/quote]
Of course you would…and I’d say they are sticking their big fat noses where they didn’t belong and weren’t welcome. Is it great to agree to disagree?[/quote]
What Vannyel??? That retort is a bit strange in my book…For example-When Maoman was talking to the mayor about the language on the MTR I don’t think he was sticking his big fat nose in it. I think he was trying to contribute something that was positive for both sides. That’s one example of many things people do here. I think that it’s natural for one no matter where they are to want to contribute something, its something that makes you feel apart of the whole, unless you don’t want to be apart of it.[/quote]
Contributing to a society is one thing, trying to mold it into the mirror image of your own is another. That’s all I am saying. Do I think Taiwan could have a better xxxxxx sure and I will tell you yyyyyy will make it better but I won’t say you’re wrong because you don’t have yyyyyy. Different strokes for different folks.
One exampel, Thirty years ago in the 9th grade I argued that manual street sweeping would give more people jobs. Well now I see it and I still agree with it.
