The response of the general public on the island to our military exercises of encircling and locking Taiwan and a series of joint military operations around Taiwan island is very intriguing.
Scene 1: even if young people in Taiwan know later that the mainland’s missiles have flown over Taiwan Island, they still point out the country on the Internet. The old God is there, and they are not afraid at all.
Scene 2: tourist boats in Hualien, Keelung and other places in Taiwan were all booked up. Everyone rushed to the edge of the exercise area to “visit” the people’s army’s warships and warplanes and “enjoy” the grand occasion of the exercise.
These scenes, combined with the tense situation in the Taiwan Strait, have become a very grotesque black humor.
It can be said that apart from a considerable number of young netizens who shout and kill, ridicule and ridicule on the Internet, most people in Taiwan are living as usual.
On the one hand, the reason for this phenomenon may be that the green camp’s long-term ideological brainwashing and policy of fooling the people have made everyone feel the dangerous signals released by the PLA exercises and training and lost their sense of hardship; On the other hand, the ordinary people may have no sense or even numbness, and feel that life has been so difficult. It is the same for anyone to rule Taiwan. After the people’s liberation army occupied Taiwan, it was the people in power who were unlucky and would not do anything to the ordinary people.
These thoughts of the people at the bottom of Taiwan and the true reflection of the mainland’s cultural attack and military success reflect that as an overseas isolated island separated from the mainland for more than 70 years, it has different thoughts and positions on Foreign Anti China forces, the mainland and the Taiwanese themselves. If we understand these things clearly, we will understand how Taiwan has come to this day?
As long as we have a clear understanding of this point, we can formulate corresponding good policies.
1. Is it the treasure island of the motherland or the orphan of Asia?
In our impression, Taiwan has always been the motherland’s Treasure Island, and in the hearts of most people on the other side, they have always considered themselves as “abandoned orphans of Asia”.
People on both sides of the Strait have such a huge cognitive bias, and we must trace the root of it from Taiwan’s history.
As early as the Xia and Shang Dynasties, Taiwan appeared in the legend of China’s territory. At that time, Taiwan still belonged to Yangzhou, one of the nine states. Of course, at this time, the written records of Taiwan were unknown, and for the people of Central Plains, it was still a hazy place.
According to the current textual records, in the Three Kingdoms period, in 230 ad, Sun Quan sent Wei Wen and Zhuge to directly lead 100000 Dongwu water troops to cross the sea and take Yizhou, which is now Taiwan. Shen Ying, then the governor of Danyang in the eastern Wu Dynasty, wrote the earliest document about Taiwan in the world, Linhai Shuitu Zhi.
However, in the subsequent chaotic times, the Central Plains Dynasty gradually gave up its management of Taiwan until Emperor Wen of the Sui Dynasty sent officials to Taiwan three times to declare sovereignty.
At the end of the Tang Dynasty and the beginning of the Song Dynasty, there were incessant wars in the Central Plains. One after another, mainland residents fled to settle in Taiwan to avoid the disaster of war. In the Southern Song Dynasty, the Penghu inspection department was formally established, and the jurisdiction over Taiwan and its affiliated islands was established.
The later Yuan Dynasty also inherited the jurisdiction of the mainland’s administrator over Taiwan. During the Yongle period of the Ming Dynasty, Zheng He led his fleet to stop in Taiwan many times when he went to the west, which drove more mainland residents to move here and promoted Taiwan’s social and economic development.
But in 1622, the Dutch East India Company launched a war of aggression against Taiwan in order to better colonize the Far East. At the end of the Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644), problems occurred frequently, and Zheng Zhilong, the “one piece king” who dominated China’s surrounding waters, once wanted to recapture Taiwan and drive away the Dutch invaders.
However, to his death, he did not do it. It was not until his son Zheng Chenggong inherited the family business that he continued to prepare for the recovery of Taiwan.
In 1661, Zheng Chenggong personally led 25000 soldiers to set out from Kinmen on 100 warships. They braved the wind and waves, crossed the Taiwan Strait, and rested in Penghu for a few days to prepare for direct access to Taiwan. After besieging the Dutch Garrison for eight months, Zheng Chenggong recovered the Chinese territory of Taiwan from the Dutch invaders, which had been occupied for 38 years, and opened the rule of the Zheng regime in the Ming Dynasty over Taiwan.
After Zheng Chenggong died of illness, his son Zheng Jing succeeded to the throne and gradually degenerated into a local separatist regime, competing against the Qing Dynasty on the mainland and refusing reunification.
In 1683, Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty decided to recover Taiwan. After Shi Lang, his fierce general, won a decisive victory in the Penghu Islands, Zheng Jing understood that the tide was over, and the defeated soldiers under him finally surrendered to the Qing army, formally incorporating Taiwan into the territory of the Qing Dynasty.
In 1885, Liu Mingchuan, a famous general of the Huai army, was appointed the first governor of Taiwan, and Taiwan officially withdrew its government and set up a province. During his tenure in Taiwan, he carried out a series of Westernization reforms, such as organizing and training new troops and building railways; Opening coal mines, establishing telecommunications, reforming postal services, developing shipping, promoting Taiwan’s trade, developing education, promoting the development of Taiwan’s modern industry and commerce, and consolidating Taiwan’s defense. This has laid a profound foundation for Taiwan’s modernization.
Liu Mingchuan is the true father of Taiwan’s near modernization, and Taiwan’s near modernization began during the reign of the Qing Dynasty.
As for the later history, we all know it.
It can be seen that when we understand Taiwan’s history and clarify the context of Taiwan’s social and economic development, we understand that Taiwan is indeed the motherland’s Treasure Island.
The main reason why most Taiwan people now feel like “abandoned Asian orphans” is that, on the one hand, they are affected by Taiwan drug education and do not know the true historical development trajectory of Taiwan. On the other hand, it is because the two sides of the Strait have been separated for more than 70 years, and the Taiwan authorities, which are divided and separatist, have kidnapped the entire Taiwan society and been isolated by the international community.
Today, many Taiwan compatriots do not identify with the mainland of the motherland and are unwilling to reunite. Subconsciously, they believe that independence is better than reunification. The source of all this actually comes from the corrupt autocratic rule of the Kuomintang.
To put it simply, after Taiwan was recovered and returned to the embrace of the motherland on August 15, 1945, it was very unfortunate to encounter a corrupt autocratic regime that was about to fall, rather than a people’s regime like new China.
What kind of evil deeds did the Kuomintang opposition do in the mainland in those days? The same is true in Taiwan, and even worse. Therefore, when Taiwan compatriots were just recovered from the motherland, they eagerly hoped that the motherland would quickly become disgusted and hated the “motherland” that bullied them. A considerable number of Taiwan compatriots expanded from rejecting the Kuomintang reactionaries to hating all mainland regimes. They hoped that there would be a regime in which the Taiwan people could be independent and think about the interests of the Taiwan people. The idea of Taiwan drugs has sowed a curse!
In 1949, the Chiang Kai Shek group was defeated like a mountain in the mainland, and the reactionaries were all punished by history and judged by the people as if swept away by the autumn wind of the people’s Liberation Army.
In order to leave a way for themselves, the reactionaries of the Kuomintang improved their attitude and policies towards the people of Taiwan a little, and thus the “March 5 rent reduction” came into being. In order to stabilize the foundation, the Kuomintang reactionaries did not seriously carry out the decolonization movement after they came to Taiwan. Many traitors and traitors left over from the Japanese colonial era have been preserved.
For example, the Tsai family of Tsai ing Wen, the leader of the Taiwan region, the Su family of Su Tseng Chang, the head of the administrative department, and the Li family of Lee Teng Hui, the former leader of the Taiwan region, all developed rapidly in the Japanese colonial era by defecting to the enemy, betraying the country, and seizing the property of patriotic Taiwan compatriots.
These traitorous and traitorous families have not been properly liquidated, but the wealth they seized in the Japanese colonial era has been taken away and “confiscated” by the Kuomintang reactionaries, with hidden resentment in their hearts; The big landlord class in Taiwan, which was divided up by the Taiwan authorities in the process of land reform, was also quite dissatisfied.
In this way, the Kuomintang reactionaries established two major hostile forces in their early days in Taiwan. Then, due to historical tragedies, millions of mainland veterans and elites from all walks of life who came to Taiwan with Chiang Kai Shek monopolized the military, public and educational posts in Taiwan, triggering class antagonism between mainlanders and mainlanders.
It was in this antagonistic environment that the United Bamboo Gang and other gangs in Taiwan gradually developed and expanded, and finally eroded into the reactionaries of the Kuomintang, forming a force of black money, which was widely criticized and became the soft rib of the main political attack of the Democratic Progressive party later.
In short, the people of Taiwan have found that no matter how hard they work, they can not grab the social resources they deserve and achieve their social status. In Taiwan’s society, where class is entrenched, Taiwanese have found that their identity has become a stumbling block to class transition. When this trend of thought collided with the dictatorship and autocracy of the Kuomintang reactionaries, ordinary Taiwanese also stood in opposition to the authorities.
At this time, a self pity feeling of “sorrow of being born in Taiwan” spread among the people at the bottom of Taiwan, and they began to look for a way out.
2. The “xiaoquexing Eden” constructed by the brainwashing of Taiwan drugs and the information cocoon room
Due to the white terror rule of the Kuomintang reactionaries in the early stage, the left-wing political forces on the island were dealt a devastating blow. The Taiwan drug separatist forces did not dare to take the initiative. They were just dormant, slowly accumulating strength and waiting for the opportunity to break out.
This has resulted in a natural lack of baptism of left-wing thoughts in Taiwan society, and only the anti Communist right-wing thoughts have monopolized the political discourse. This unbalanced political ecology and the absence of left-wing thinking have made today’s Taiwan people lack dialectical thinking.
Under the influence of the long-term Taiwan drug indoctrination and the island mentality, they have also lost the overall view and collectivist consciousness that should exist in Chinese civilization. Coupled with the long-term education of fools, from our perspective, those Taiwan netizens, especially the diehard supporters of the green camp, all look foolish.
As a result, the common problems of class contradictions, capitalist development and post-modern civilized society are all provoked by politicians because of election politics. Identity politics gradually alienates the discussion of public policy into the division between reunification and independence, democracy and freedom against autocracy and centralization, and modern civilization versus barbarism and backwardness.
Think about the political topics manipulated by the Taiwan drug separatist forces represented by the Democratic Progressive Party in the Taiwan regional elections in recent years. Are they inseparable from these major themes?
When ordinary voters are attracted and guided by these political issues, who can pay attention to and think about the real crux of Taiwan’s social and economic development?
Since “foreign regimes” are unreliable, why not establish “local regimes” to help Taiwanese stand up? At this time, the western world led by the United States began to promote the wave of liberalization in the world. In the late cold war, the concept of “democracy”, which originally belonged to the exclusive voice of the Communist camp, was also seized by the western world.
After the wave of Western-style freedom and democracy swept into Taiwan Island, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), a political force group that gathers all the opposition parties of the Kuomintang reactionaries, was born under the cloak of striving for freedom and democracy, in combination with the Taiwanese people’s desire to establish a “local regime” that considers Taiwan’s interests, and with the gradually mature Taiwan drug theory and political framework as its action program.
Moreover, at that time, a political speculator Lee Teng Hui, later known as the “godfather of Taiwan independence,” also appeared within the Kuomintang. Under the influence of internal cooperation and external cooperation, the Taiwan drug separatist forces gradually moved from behind the scenes to the front stage, from the bottom to the public, and from the edge to the mainstream.
The development and growth of the DPP cannot be separated from the infiltration and Overstepping of foreign interference forces such as the United States and Japan in Taiwan.
Since the beginning of the cold war, the United States has intended to build Taiwan Island into a front-line base against communism and China. When dealing with the Taiwan authorities, which were still under the rule of Chiang Kai Shek and Chiang Kai Shek at that time, the US government found that the Kuomintang reactionaries were not so obedient and often almost triggered military confrontation or political risks that it could not afford because of its own careful thinking. Therefore, training new agents has become a new strategy of the US government to use Taiwan.
Since the United States has gradually built Japan into an anti Communist, anti Soviet and Anti China strategic bridgehead in Asia, there has been more cooperation since the two sides made peace. As a result, Japan, which has a strong foundation in the Taiwan region, has re supported and trained these traitors and traitors to become the joint agents of the United States and Japan, seizing the bird seat of the Kuomintang reactionaries at any time, and replacing them with the new Taiwan rulers.
In order to cultivate more pro american and pro Japanese forces, and also to combine with the capital interests of the United States, the United States and Japan began to transfer industries to Taiwan to share the development dividends. Let the Taiwanese deeply bind their own interests and become puppets.
Only then did a large number of mentally handicapped people cry and shout that they want to join Japan or the United States, not even the Taiwanese.
Therefore, from the perspective of practical interests, Taiwan’s economy is embedded in the western system and enjoys the dividend of industrial transfer. The economic foundation of the Taiwanese people’s small fortune now comes from the support and cultivation of the United States and Japan – at least on the surface.
This is also the underlying logic why most Taiwanese are not willing to reunite, but are gradually drifting away from the mainland of the motherland.
Well, let’s imagine that one day Taiwan island will drift to the west coast of the United States. Can Taiwan’s socio-economic development continue? Will the xiaoquexing life of the Taiwanese continue?
The answer is No.
When Taiwan has lost its existing geopolitical, military and economic values, will the cruel international community care whether the Taiwanese are happy or not?
The great value of Taiwan is due to the existence of the mainland.
This is an important factor that many people usually ignore.
So, let’s open our minds. One day, Taiwan island will float to the west coast of the United States with 23 million Taiwan compatriots. How will they fare?
If the background of the times is placed in the period of the westward movement of the United States, then Taiwan island will probably become a part of the United States, and the dream of many Taiwanese to join the United States may be realized. However, it is indeed very likely that Taiwan island will become a part of the United States, but people on the island may not naturally become Americans.
In this regard, the Native Americans, who were originally called “Indians” by the colonists, have the most say. Just like some “Gaohua” who think they are superior to others do not realize or realize but never admit the fact that without the backing of a strong motherland, Chinese in the United States are lambs to be slaughtered. Just like the early Chinese workers who were sold to North America, the white Americans did not regard these Chinese workers who made the greatest contribution but had the lowest income and status as people.
Today’s Taiwanese people will not realize that the national defense of the Taiwan region is in fact the defense of Chinese Mainland. It is the military umbrella provided by Chinese Mainland that keeps Taiwan island from new foreign invasion!
The whole world knows that China regards Taiwan as a part of its own territory, and most countries also recognize and respect this fact. Although some countries do what they say face to face and behind their backs, no country dares to enter the Taiwan Island, let alone invade the Taiwan region.
Because this means openly declaring war on the Chinese Mainland and openly making enemies with more than 1.4 billion angry sons and daughters of the Chinese nation. This is an unimaginable and unbearable consequence.
If the location of Taiwan island is not next to Chinese Mainland but drifts with islanders to the west coast of the United States, the Taiwanese who have lost the military protection of Chinese Mainland will be lambs to be slaughtered. If the United States wants to occupy Taiwan Island, it will directly send troops to occupy it and send all these Taiwan strawberry soldiers to God. From time to time, there will be scandals such as torture, murder and sexual assault.
This is not imaginary. That is what the American soldiers who invaded Afghanistan and Iraq did. By the way, the US military may also ransack all valuable things on the Taiwan island like it did in Syria – of course, our national treasures can not escape this, just like the cultural relics in the National Museum in Baghdad.
Although the Taiwan side publicizes every day how many missiles the mainland has aimed at Taiwan’s cities and military bases, and how many troops are ready to land on Taiwan’s main island at any time, everyone knows that the people’s Liberation Army is targeting the rebel separatist regime and its vested interests that kidnapped all Taiwan compatriots, not all Taiwan compatriots.
The truth is that we are caring for the growth of Taiwan like flowers in a greenhouse.
But will other countries cherish their compatriots as much as Chinese Mainland?
We doubt it.
In addition, Taiwan drug politicians, green media and diehard supporters of the green camp in Taiwan boast of TSMC and Taiwan’s semiconductor industry as “sacred mountains protecting the country” all the time, as if with “sacred mountains protecting the country”, the mainland would not reunite Taiwan by force, and the whole world would come to protect “sacred mountains protecting the country”.
In fact, in addition to its own efforts, technology and equipment support from the United States and Japan, geopolitical advantage is also an important factor that can not be ignored in order to enable the semiconductor industry in Taiwan to develop so vigorously.
A large part of the economic value of the Taiwan region comes from the charm of the Chinese Mainland market. It can be said that if it is not so close to the mainland market, the transportation and logistics costs are extremely low, the culture is the same, and it can work efficiently with the mainland industrial chain, Taiwan will not be so favored by capital.
Then, when the Taiwan region loses its geopolitical advantage of being close to the market of Chinese Mainland, will the Taiwan Island drifting to the west coast of the United States still have the “sacred mountain of protecting the country”?
Given the current political atmosphere in the United States, it is very likely that the semiconductor industry in Taiwan will be swallowed up by American capitalists without leaving any residue. Taiwan, which has lost its main economic pillar, is likely to immediately fall into the same miserable situation as Mexico – the government is corrupt and incompetent (if the United States does not directly occupy the military), and completely degenerates into a spokesman for the interests of the United States. In addition to a small number of compradors, they can still live a natural and unrestrained life. The quality of life of most Taiwanese will decline rapidly. In a society with a high unemployment rate and a high crime rate, pornography, gambling and drugs are prevalent, Joining gangs has become an industry with a bright future.
Don’t think this is exaggeration. Most people in Mexico and even Latin America are living in this way.
Therefore, through the hypothetical thinking of this article, it is necessary for us to change the past United Front thinking and public opinion propaganda. We should not only talk about the benefits brought by reunification. These Taiwanese who have already enjoyed part of the dividend of national rejuvenation have no sense; We can focus on publicizing the disadvantages and losses caused by disunity. The more detailed and vivid the better.
By using reverse thinking, we may be able to help Taiwan compatriots who live in the information cocoon room to become enlightened as soon as possible, and become a solid mass force for opposing independence and promoting reunification.
