Great video report about singles in #Taiwan! 
Intimate TV report about a single woman in Taipei More and more Taiwanese are marrying late, or not at all. Well-educated singles in their 30s are quite common. Some have even given up on looking for their significant other. A declining birthrate is one result of this trend. Why is that so? Most media reports …

"Resisting national suicide, or defending one’s liberal democracy, isn’t extremism—in fact it’s a perfectly rational, though by necessity temporary, response."

Kaum ein anderes Land ist bei Chinesen so beliebt wie Deutschland. Warum eigentlich? Und: Ändert sich das gerade?

"Opposition to the government and to the KMT is not driven by antipathy toward China, but rather by disgust with the government’s lack of respect and concern for the opinions of the people and for its failure to follow democratic procedures."

"Perhaps we may find the siege preparation by the government to be symbolic of how the KMT is at war with Taiwanese youth over what is Taiwan’s past is—and in that way, also what its future will be."

Zu oft passieren vermeidbare Katastrophen in Taiwan.

Zu viele hausgemachte Katastrophen Deutschlands Perfektionismus hier, Taiwans Flexibilität dort – manchmal finde ich es erfrischend, in einem Land zu leben, wo es nicht alles haarklein per Vorschrift geregelt ist. Aber gerade im letzten Jahr haben sich in Taiwan einige Katastrophen ereignet, die mir zu denken gaben. Vielleicht haben sie es neulich gesehen, zum Beispiel …

"The PFP has tried to define itself as the nonpartisan, good-governance, caring alternative for disillusioned former KMT supporters."
James Soong and his People's First Party have gone from KMT splinter group to almost a footnote of history. Yet Soong may soon change everything, again.

Important background on the Taiwanese student protester who killed himself.
The one who’s sick is this society. It’s the adults. It’s the parents who were brainwashed, like me. You were a little prince who always had pure thoughts. You completed your mission. You made public opinion boil over all right. You’ve made us brainwashed adults rethink things.

"Just as cultural values concerning the young elevate students to a place of moral purity, allowing for them to occupy a privileged place in protest movements about social issues, such cultural values can also turn around and condemn students as hooligans out to cause trouble at the expense of public order and social harmony—and to be punished as threats to social order."

"It is very difficult to explain Hung’s positions using a rational yardstick. At this point, nobody — KMT members included — seems to know what is going on. Whether this unprecedented departure from the norm is the result of chaos within the party, or, more darkly, collusion between Hung and the CCP, remains to be seen. What is known, however, is that the KMT’s bizarre turn is diametrically opposed to the direction in which it ought to be heading — that is, becoming more reflective of the wishes of the majority of voters in Taiwan (including traditional KMT voters) and more accountable to the public."
