Do you really think a God King can bring democracy and human rights to former serfs. Or even deal with multinational economic issues or the military threat of 3 nuclear neighbors. I don’t think so.
I’m sure that what LTH would advocate everyone adopting a Japanese name like himself to declare independence.
Bu Lai En,
He never put ROC interest infront of PRC. He put is own interest infront of welfare of everyone on ROC.
How is his Taidu aspirations any benefit to ROC relationship with PRC, which is fundimental to the economic well being of ROC, not to mention miltiary stability.
In comparision to Hsu position, isn’t it easier for politicians to start any constructive dialogue with PRC, which acknowledges the fundimental importance of PRC to ROC.
As oppose to Taidu platform, especially LTH version of Taidu, which advocates that ROC doesn’t even exist and openly wants PRC to be divided into 7 nation states.
PRC has already permitted civil demostrators to land on Diaoyutai in protest.
If the people ROC had the same LP as the people of PRC, we should be doing the same.
Find me one Tibetian of the serf lineage that attends Beijing University or Fudan University that advocates the return to a backward illiterate society of God Kings and I might reconsider my position. But every Tibetian I have ever met, who have acquired the tools to socially advance in China, don’t advocate going backwards in society.
Just like most modern Chinese don’t advocate foot binding anymore, yern to see achitecture from the Q’ing Dynasty, or the return of an emperor.
That was CJG who set the foundation for a democracy. LTH was another pawn in his vision. Selected because he was precieved as a BSR and also because he had no child. LTH was predestine to step down from office and leave no heir.
Too bad there are no more visionary people in Taiwan to get it past the next hurdle of the eventual PRC conflict.[/quote]
Your post just shook the whole island up! What’s up with that? About a 4 on the richter?
