Stop using the Ming Guo calendar. The mainland can hardly complain, since they’re on Jesus Time too.
Topple Chiang Kai-Shek statues wherever they can be found. Re-theme his memorial into something having to do with human rights or local culture or Hello Kitty or something.
In addition to the “national” ROC flag, give Taiwan a provincial flag. Make that flag identical or similar to that of the first Republic of Taiwan:
Later, when they’re really feeling brave, they can start leaving off the ROC flag!
- Add the name “Taiwan” to “Chung Hua Min Guo”:
Tai Wan Chung Hua Min Guo
“Chinese Republic of Taiwan”
Unfair to the aboriginals, I know, but it’s virtue is in its ambiguity, and the fact that it’s almost the same as the current name.
(If they really don’t like the “Chung Hua” part, then go whole hog and secede from Chinese culture altogether. Promote Klingon as the national language and Mormonism as the state religion, that should be enough to impress!)
- Mollify the aboriginals by officially declaring all dozen of their languages (or however many there are) plus Hakka to be official languages. This would follow the example of South Africa, which has eleven official languages, some of which are more equal than others. Obviously the move would have little practical effect, except for cluttering up the street signs so that the Tong Yong Pin Yin becomes harder to read.
Hong Kong’s trilingual (Mandarin, Cantonese, English) system would be a useful practical model for public announcements etc. I’d solve the street sign problem by putting up both mainland pinyin and Bible Taiwanese. Using sticky-paint like they use on the MRT stations, which is easy to peel off in case of misspelling or political change.
