I’m not the owner or moderator for CD, so I’m not responsible for editorial choices here. I also have had some of my postings deleted, but you don’t see me whining about it. If I were the owner or moderator, I would not censor, and allow people to debate openly. But I’m only a guest here, just like you, so I accept the editorial policies here.
You are being a hypocrite. You wrote: “The reason why I think Chinese who are now "foreigners" to China have no rights to comment on the issue is because, you are not subject to the kind of fear the CCP imposes on its people”. But then you hypocritically welcome supportive comments from other foreigners who are not subject to the kind of fear the CCP imposes on its people. Now do you see your hypocrisy?
1. Actually, I have faced greater danger courageously living in USA. During the Cold War, we didn’t know if USSR was going to start WW3, with a nuclear exchange. FYI, there were some folks in the Midwest busy building fallout shelters, hoping they could survive a nuclear war. We faced a far greater threat living in America, than what Taiwanese face today, so spare me with your silly fear mongering. Nuclear annihilation is far more threatening than being in the missile radius in Taiwan.
2. When my parents left China, it wasn’t because they didn’t have faith in the future of China. My parents came to America to take care of my sick grandfather. Filial piety is still an admirable trait in Chinese culture. I question your credibility because you don’t even know my family, yet somehow you think you know why my parents came to America. If my grandfather was in HK, Singapore, Canada, South America, Canton China, that’s where my parents would have gone. My grandfather just happened to be in USA at the time, so that where my parents went.
3. Check the archives and you will see for yourself, that I’ve never claimed I know what political system is most suitable for China and Taiwan. That’s for China and Taiwan to decide. I suggested Hierarchical Sovereignty as a structure, not a political system, to address the concerns on both sides.
Lastly, I still have relatives living in China. I don’t want to see war, because that may put my relatives in danger. That’s why I’ve consistently supported Status Quo, because it is best for now, at maintaining the peace, albeit not ideally for both sides. I’m comfortable with Status Quo, and allowing the trends to run its course. But like the Taiwanese delegation who tried and failed 13 conservative times to change Status Quo at the UN, it sure doesn’t sound like you are comfortable with Status Quo. I’ll give you credit for seeing that the trends are not favorable for Taiwan, so it’s understandable that they want to change Status Quo.
