Why defend the Taiwanese?

While I’ve noticed that most Westerners visiting Taiwan seem to have a good firm hold on reality I’ve met a few on the street and read posts on this website from several who seem bent-out-of-shape if you say anything negative about this place. Why is that?

This topic has been discussed and raged about many times here. Could I politely suggest you search some of the old threads here and formulate your own view - if you haven’t already!
