As to Taiwan democracy, I do not think a debate is necessary or worthwhile, There is NO democracy as there is none in USA or Australia. Pretend democracy is the vogue. Read " Armed Madhouse " by Greg Palast and you can have a laugh about this issue. Sad and mad.
There are many books bashing western democracy, just like there are just as many books criticizing China's communism, written by both Chinese and Western scholars. All the Chinese scholars would obviously simply repeat CCP partyline because if you look at our contemporary history, that's what scholars and elites do under a dictatorship.
Lets just be practical and discuss democracy from a pratical point of view. You don't live in China so you probably don't know about those who had their land confiscated by government officials who received bribes from real-estate developers. Imagine if you were a PRC ctiizen who has just had your home bulldozed to build someone else's house, and you have never been properly compensated, what would you do? The reason I keep inquiring about your citizenship is because I am sure if things like this happen to you in the UK, you would immediately sue the government, which is impossible in China. Whether you admit it or not, the Taiwanese people have the right to sue any of their government officials, including the president. This is democracy, the people have these rights, protected by law. In China, this is unthinkable. If your land is taken away from you, well, tough SH!T.
The 1000 missiles in China are aimed at anyone who threatens us. The co-ordinates of the enemy can be altered at will and at short notice. To drum up this " threat " that all the missiles are aimed specifically and invariably at Taiwan is wrong and show the paranoia which suits the splittist. NO force will be used on Taiwan until and unless Taiwan asks for it with a unilateral declaration of independence. Which part of this sentence is so hard to understand ??
Taiwan is not the one who has been drumming up the threat, it's those PLA generals, who, one after another, comes out making public statements about how they are prepared to nuke Taiwan. If I were holding a gun to your head right now, would you have to be paranoid just to say you are scared? Duh... it's a natural reaction. Your beloved CCP, not the China nor the Chinese people, is what's been pushing the Taiwan comptriots further away. Taiwan is prevented by its own constitution from declaring independence, and to change this constitution the Taidus need need 3/4 votes in the "legislative yuan", which everyone knows will be impossible. So what suits the splittists are the constant PLA generals' provacations and bigots like you. But it doesn't matter to you anyway, you don't live in China, or the Chinese province of Taiwan, so it's easy for you to dismiss the 1000 missiles. What a hypocrite!?!
