Introspection of histrory should not be shuned

When I found and read the news, 韓国政府転覆はでっち上げ 民青学連事件で調査公表 (A fabricated conspiracy to overthrow the Korean government. The investigation report of incident of Student Union of Democratic Youth published) on Asahi Shinbun's website, I did envy and admire the S.Korean people.

The democratization of S.Korea and Taiwan was late in comparison with Japan and Occidental countries. The democratic campaigners had been fighting for quite a long time before the dictatorial government stepping down and democracy being established.

However when the S.Korean are honestly facing the faults they made before, Taiwanese still shun to introspect our own history so far.

KMT, the once-dictatorial-party that slaughtered and oppressed Taiwanese people, has never been inquired into their guilt. Also the incumbent goverment has never officially and openly looked into the politicians involved in those shameful deeds. What even more ridiculous is KMT just secured a landslide in joint local election held on December 3rd, 2005.

Now I believe the deep influence of education and media. So pathetic that our people are so well brainwashed that they've been turned to think and act weirdly and unreasonably.

Not dangerous enough. More please...

The joint local election in Taiwan has finished. KMT is cheerful for the landslide-victory, however many people are worried about the future of Taiwan.

Sounds serious, isn't it? It's just an election that is held periodically in any democratic state like Taiwan. Though pro-China KMT swallowed more than half of the ballots, most of the Taiwanese do not think Chinese reign over Taiwan is acceptable. Say if a referendum held for Taiwan to be merged into China, I certainly believe there will be a veto put strongly. The local election victory has shown nothing but KTM still owns awful local control at all.

After the election, KTM's chairman Ma Ying-Jeou has claimed to loosen the restrictions over economical activities to China. Also he blamed the current legal measures are sakoku (literally "closed country") . What a ridiculous comment !

There are economical restrictions toward China for national security concerns derived from China's territorial ambition toward Taiwan. However the restrictions do not work well that Taiwan is already the biggest foreign investing country in China. For about USD 200 billion shed into the hostile state, China is also the biggest investment recipient from Taiwan.

I'm sorry to say Taiwanese businessmen have very little risk-management concepts and national security consideration.

Anyone who has basic economical or financial knowledges knows that investment concentration is quite dangerous. The claims of "not dangerous enough, more please" from pro-China oppositon party is so stupid and nothing but nonsense !
