Von Deutschland aus liegt Taiwan nicht um die Ecke – wer sich überlegt, ob er eine Reise antreten soll, hat viele Fragen. Hier versuche ich einige zu beantworten. Hoffentlich sind die wichtigsten dabei!

" ‘Two-faced intellectual’, a charge now being levelled at many Uyghur public figures whose commitment to their own culture is now equated to a lack of loyalty to the Chinese state, and an imprisonable offence."

Was ich im Gefängnis in Taiwan erlebte. (Als ich einen Deutschen besuchte.)

(My German blog about German prisoners in Taiwanese prisons. They've all been repatriated since Taiwan and Germany signed an agreement that allows citizens of both sides to serve their sentence in their home countries.)

Fun with freedom of navigation operations! The best explanation I've seen so far of what exactly US ships are doing in the South China Sea, and why.

Important! Less than half of Taiwanese identify with any political party now.

Reasons?
"Firstly, DPP supporters may be disappointed with some of Tsai’s policy failures including the flip-flop labor law reform, an unstable electricity supply, and worsening air pollution.
Besides, hardcore DPP supporters are unsatisfied with Tsai’s moderate position on cross-Strait relations, with the New Power Party serving as a clearly distinguished point of comparison...

Secondly, the KMT has failed to attract more support from among this base of disappointed DPP voters because of its composition and unwelcome/unclear cross-Strait policies...

Thirdly, Taiwanese have not embraced minor parties because of their low chance of winning in general elections."

"You can’t say one thing to one audience and another thing to another audience. On this topic (#Taiwan, #China), everyone is always watching, and everyone sees and hears everything you do and say. Moreover, everyone understands the little nuances of the words, and when there is ambiguity, unfortunately China’s superior international presence and influence allows it to clarify the ambiguity as it sees fit for the rest of the world."
