 美國 FreeBeacon  , 10-19-2017 : "中國習近平對台獨的籲請 猛力關上大門 (Slams the Door on Taiwanese Appeals for Independence)"  紐約時報 (NY Times), 10-19-2017:  習近平呼籲台灣回歸祖國, 如同港澳般實行愛國者為主體的自治 ,... "绝不允许任何人、任何组织、任何政党、在任何时候、以任何形式、把任何一块中国领土从中国分裂出去!”  這段誓辭贏得全場最熱烈的掌聲(in 19th CPC Congress Speech).    華盛頓郵報 (Washington Post) , 10-18-2017: 習近平所謂"任何一块中国领土"包括了台灣以及其他爭議中的小島  德國 Spiegel, 1-9-2017, Global Times of China:一中原則 ... 沒有討價還價的餘地("Es gibt keinen Raum für Verhandlungen".)  五角大廈於May 2017警告:台灣過去可以遏制中國襲擊的「許多優勢」(包括美國協防),已經被中國的軍事現代化「削弱或消除了」

中国(The People's Republic of China)長久以來認定台灣  (Taiwan  the Republic of China )屬於中國不可分割的一部分,而且為其核心利益,必要時將以武力解決台灣問題 , 截至2017年秋 ,在中国施壓與外交影響下 ,  台灣邦交國只剩20 ,且多為爾小邦, 北京隨時可進一步挫敗台外交,另手的軟策略則是對台「讓利」,希望更多台灣人傾向統一,如今,台灣超過三分之二的海外直接投资於對岸,大陸已成為台灣最大的贸易伙伴。 實際的台灣人一致認為:  與大陸的經濟依存無法避免,但過度仰赖則存在風险。

 

台灣創造了經濟奇蹟 ,成為世界重要電子產品生產廠與亞洲主要貿易國家 、亞洲第7與世界第22大經濟體 , 據Global Wealth Report (Credit Suisse, Nov., 2017)台灣人的平均財富USD 188,081, 接近西歐水平 UK USD 278,038, France USD 263,399 台灣高科技產品曾在全球經濟扮演要角,其關鍵技術 、 零組件須仰賴日本與美國的提供 且低薪將使台灣高科技產業居人後。 2016年中国的GDP約為台灣的23倍,大陸廣東等5 省皆已超過台灣台灣憂心三五年內台灣可能落到大陸十省之後。 據中研院報告,政府若不 儘快解決法律環評  、對大陸過度保守等問題台灣未來10年至少會被15-30個國家超越

    

日本読売新聞社説6-22-2017: 美國負責加強台灣的防務,是維護台海和平與穩定的關鍵。 ( "米国は台湾の防衛力強化を担っており、台湾海峡の平和と安定のカギを握る。")  台灣的"守護神"美國,對於兩岸問題採取戰略模糊("strategic ambiguity")政策, "認知"(“acknowledge”)台灣屬於中國 , 但不"承認"(“recognize”)台灣屬於中国,  並根據 美國法律販售防衛武器給台灣但 近年缺乏給台灣真正優勢的重要系統 長年以來,台灣政府 也未正 視中国不斷增強的威脅,且假設美國一定會出兵解救台湾,國、民二黨的國防政策與规劃  ―  現役正規軍砍半成二十萬人、 二百萬後備軍人形同虚設,導致了 軍力不足且士氣低落。 倾向獨立的台灣總統 蔡英文在2016年的就職演講裡,提到了《中華民國憲法》和两岸條例法规,二者均暗示(imply) 她已接受了“一個中國”的框架 2017年底「川習會」後台灣媒體擔憂過去「美中共管」台灣的模式是否 有所改變?

雖然實質上台灣已具備國家的要件,但卻不斷自傷形象, 甚至不少行徑有如"窮斯濫"之國:

 剝削 外籍漁工與家事勞工官員貪污家庭暴力部分媒體在報導關於中國新聞時有「自我審查」狀況、買票、企業違反工時規定、性別歧視及兒虐案件增加... / 美國國務院 人權報告 United States Department of State Country Reports on Human Rights Practices (3-3-2017)

●  台灣司法不獨立 /  美國國務院 人權報告(2016-2017)  "司法仍在當打手" , <聯合報>  "檢察",<聯合報> ,  06-18-2016

哈佛大學教授 Dr. Joseph Nye 曾建議台灣發展軟實力 以開拓國際空間應對中國,然而根據《MONOCLE》抑或 2017's Soft Power 30 Study compiled by PR company Portand Communication and University of Southern California,近年來台灣軟實力表現卻不及鄰國如 Japan, South Korea, Australia, Singapore, New Zealand,  India, UAE ,甚至不如中國

         美國將海軍兵力重點移防亞太地區,主要是因應中國大陸擴張,以保持美國軍事影響力,加上常態兵力部署多,一旦危機發生,反應速度更多,因此對岸短期內不會採取軍事冒進的動作,進而形成對台的支持與保證。

The Chinese Invasion Threat China has finalized a clandestine plan to invade Taiwan in 2020 by launching missile attacks, blocking the nation’s air and sea space, and carrying out amphibious landings, Washington-based think tank Project 2049 Institute research fellow Ian Easton said.

 

●  Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Lo Chih-cheng (羅致政) raised doubts over the time frame Easton asserted, saying that he did not think it is very precise.

 

China, according to the book <The Chinese Invasion Threat>, would "almost certainly" fail in its full-scale invasion of Taiwan but its military appears driven to prepare and carry out such an attack.

     台灣人權  Taiwanese human rights
 

  ● 美國國務院 人權報告United States Department of State Country Reports on Human Rights Practices : 3-3-2017
     

      主要人權問題是: 外籍遠洋漁船漁工與家事勞工被剝削官員貪污家庭暴力其他問題包括: 部分媒體在報導關於中國新聞時有「自我審查」狀況、買票、企業違反工時規定、大眾交通系統缺乏無障礙設施、性別歧視及兒虐案件增加...
   

官方未能有效執法,違反法定工時的情況在各行業都十分常見。許多公司要求勞工超過加班上限或未能支付加班費,物流運輸業最嚴重違法;勞動部檢查發現,機師、火車司機、公車司機、媒體行業員工平均工時也超過法定限制。缺乏無障礙空間與提供給身心障礙人士的交通系統,尤其是在台北以外;報告也提出具性別偏見的性別選擇、增加虐童等問題。

●  司法: 司法不夠獨立 justice ministry was insufficiently independent and conducted politically motivated investigations of politicians.

貪污:  201 名官員 包括23名高官貪污 charges.  中正大學研究(National Chung Cheng University) 76%受訪者不滿意政府反貪不足 .

女權Women: 強姦與家暴 包括  spousal rape, and domestic violence. 社會文化因素使許多婦女隱忍不報性侵數字應7~10倍於通報數婦女升遷職位、 薪資較男性差(約83%薪資); 蔡政府內閣成員中女性閣員占比是自1997年來最低

歧視Discrimination: 外籍與陸配是歧視標的  There was reported discrimination, including employment discrimination, against persons with HIV/AIDS

外籍 移工人權遭仲介剝削、是家暴與官員貪污的受害者: Types of exploitation included migrant workers becoming victims of domestic violence and official corruption.   Human rights groups had long protested that the law left migrant workers open to exploitation from third-party brokers.

 

    Principal human rights problems reported during the year were exploitation of foreign workers, including foreign crewmembers on long-haul fishing vessels and household caregivers; domestic violence; and official corruption.   Other human rights concerns during the year included some media self-censorship with regard to China; vote buying; violations of legal working hours; lack of barrier-free spaces and accessible transportation systems for persons with disabilities, particularly outside Taipei; gender-biased sex selection; and a rise in child abuse.  /

     台灣軟實力  Taiwan soft power

    軟實力(soft power)是哈佛大學學者奈伊(Joseph Nye)提出的概念,指一國並非透過以軍事動武威逼、或金錢收買的方式,對外形成的吸引力與影響力 ( applying power by persuasion and attraction rather than coercion or force.)。奈伊(Joseph Nye)主張軟硬實力是台灣解決二岸爭端 及擴展國際空間 長久有效的好方法之一 ... ( hard & soft power enable Taiwan to deal with China and expand its international space. Dec. 8, 2010)。

 

    關注國際事務與文化的英國雜誌《MONOCLE》,連續數年公布全球軟實力國家排行榜。《單鏡片》(《MONOCLE》)並沒有從金融和軍隊實力的老角度去評判,而是從按各國的 culture, politics, business, diplomacy and education(文化產出、政治水平、 外交基建、教育能力及商業誘因)等範疇因素評選各國的軟實力。BBC認為「軟實力」已經變為一種國際性的外交政策目標。

 

   台灣並未雀屏中選於《MONOCLE》, 甚至連年輸給中國大陸, 與亞太國家如日本(Japan)、 南韓(South Korea)、澳洲(Australia)、 新加坡(Singapore)、紐西蘭(New Zealand)、 中國(China)、印度 (India)、 阿拉伯(UAE),這些大小國家近年都曾經進入前20+名排行。學術論文指出,軟實力的提出負有政治任務,既然台灣軟實力如此當初為什麼自吹自擂呢?

 

   根據另分研究 2017's Soft Power 30 Study, compiled by PR company Portand Communication and University of Southern California.  台灣也未能入列, 敗給日本(Japan)、 南韓(South Korea)、澳洲(Australia)、 新加坡(Singapore)、紐西蘭(New Zealand)、 中國(China)。  前 30名是 1  France  2 UK  3 USA  4 Germany  5  Canada   6 Japan  7  Swiss  8 Australia   9 Sweden  10  Holland  11 Denmark  12 Norway  13  Italy  14  Austria  15  Spain   16  Belgium  17 Finland  18 NZ   19 Ireland  20  Singapore   21 S.

          Officially, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) still favours eventual independence for Taiwan, while the KMT favours eventual re-unification. Opinion polls show only a small minority of Taiwanese support pursuing one or the other at the moment, with most preferring to stick with the current middle ground.

These contradictory trends only continued during Ma Ying-jeou’s presidency, and will certainly shape the environment in which leaders in both Beijing and Taipei attempt to define and manage the cross-Strait relationship

台灣只有順民?    <自由時報> ,民國105年1月4日 (1-4-2016)

台北市長柯文哲今早出席凱達格蘭學校演講會,指台灣歷史上總被欺負、被弄,台灣人失去信心及熱情,所以台灣只有順民,「因為做基因研究,其實個性跟基因有關,在做動物實驗比較乖的狗跟乖的狗交配,生出來狗比較乖」。柯指台灣歷史上不是沒有反抗,但反抗者被殺,剩下比較乖的跟比較乖的結婚,生下來更乖。(brief)

 "台灣人怎麼這麼沒種 ", <自由時報> ,民國101年1月31日  [政治新聞版冷眼集]

台灣人沒種的浩歎,到處俯拾皆是。例如,選舉前,明明各種調查都顯示,多數人都認知貧富差距擴大是當前台灣最迫切待解的問題,但是投票的那一霎時,「恫嚇牌」還是戰勝一切,所有的不公不義全都可以拋諸腦後。...... 為數最多的,還是,擠在門邊,腳在門外,眼在門內,一窩子的台灣人,套句後藤新平羞辱台灣人的話︰「怕死、愛錢 」。

       political persecution in Taiwan

●  wikipedia: The Chinese Civil War resumed, with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) led by Mao Zedong defeating the Nationalists and declaring the People's Republic of China in 1949. Chiang's government and army retreated to Taiwan, where Chiang imposed martial law and persecuted critics in a period known as the "White Terror".  

Taiwanese government still involving political persecutions had been questioned.   French AFP (Dec. 1, 2011) , Thailand's Bangkok Post (Dec. 3, 2011), Yahoo UK & Ireland, and all local media reported ( Dec. 2011)  Taiwan's opposition party vice presidential candidate and NTU professor Lin Ruey-Shiung (PhD., Johns Hopkins University, USA, Ruprecht-Karls-Universitat Heidelberg Germany.) was subject to electromagnetic wave attacks.   Dr Lin thinks it's launched by a Taiwanese intelligence government, but that unit denied, some media reported these weapons most likely were imported from USA  Many similar reports and sayings concerning this sort of political persecutions can be found on the net.

Taiwan president Tsai : Food safety is one of biggest challenges to Taiwan / The China Times, 8-6-2016
 

The New York Times and The Economist (11.29.2014) comment a series of food safety scandals is one of few main factors causing the KMT, Taiwan's ruling party, has suffered one of its worst electoral defeats since Chiang Kai-shek and his forces fled to the island at the end of Chinese civil war in 1949.

 

The New York Times (9.8.2014): the new scandal  (Taiwan food-safety scare) shows that there is still not enough being done to eliminate lawbreaking production lines.

 

Apple Daily News (蘋果日報) 8-28-2015,  A2 Prime News Edition:

The incidence rate of Taiwanese people suffering colon/rectal cancer was ranked world No.1 , Taipei Medical University Hospital's director of surgeons expressed Taiwan's food scandals constantly happened in recent years, many black-heart tainted foods containing Carcinogen (cancer producer) is a factor causing high incidence rate.

Bloomberg BusinessWeek  (9.8.2014): Tainted Lard: China's Latest Food-Safety Scare Comes From Taiwan.  

 

BBC news (Nov. 19, 2013): A series of food safety scandals in Taiwan has hurt consumer confidence, and now there are worries they could dent the island's economic growth and damage tourism.  

 

The Economist (UK) commented :  Taiwan's former reputation as a reliable and safe food manufacturing country has been damaged... 

 

The China Times (Taiwan, Nov. 30, 2013) stated black-heart food, risks and traps are everywhere, and comments Taiwan government is short of will-power, ability, and resolution to combat illegal targets ...

  WikiLeaks 2010 : Taiwanese people are friendly for Bio. tech. and are intend to buy GM label food, so the "Embassy" of a strong nation is planning to build a  Genetic Modification (GM) zone in Taiwan.
 In fact, it's a so called "national scandal" (the China Times, Mar. 29, 2013) that Taiwanese consumers generally do not fully know or don't care  the controversy of health risks caused by GM food.  Taiwanese government should urge everyone refusing to buy GM food. 
 About 99.5% of soy food products in Taiwan are imported, 90% of them are GM soy beans.

  1.       Required is the voluntary, well-informed, understanding consent of the human subject in a full legal capacity.
  2.       The experiment should aim at positive results for society that cannot be procured in some other way.
  3.        It should be based on previous knowledge (like, an expectation derived from animal experiments) that justifies the experiment.
  4.        The experiment should be set up in a way that avoids unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injuries.
  5.        It should not be conducted when there is any reason to believe that it implies a risk of death or disabling injury.
  6.        The risks of the experiment should be in proportion to (that is, not exceed) the expected humanitarian benefits.
  7.        Preparations and facilities must be provided that adequately protect the subjects against the experiment’s risks.
  8.        The staff who conduct or take part in the experiment must be fully trained and scientifically qualified. 
  9.        The human subjects must be free to immediately quit the experiment at any point when they feel physically or mentally unable to go on.
  10.         Likewise, the medical staff must stop the experiment at any point when they observe that continuation would be dangerous.
