According to a report by Taiwan United News Network on the 6th, the voting results for the "Taiwan 2019 Representative Election" were announced. The word "Chaos" topped the 42 candidates and was selected as the representative of the year. "Chaos" is also the first place in the first Taiwan representative election in 2008. It is also the first time that the Taiwan representative has repeated "furnace owners" after 12 elections. Starting from 2008, the representative words selected in the past 11 years include: chaos, hope, light, praise, worry, false, black, change, bitter, vague, turning, each word describes the social intentions and popular thoughts of the year.
The word "chaos" truly reflects Taiwan's current social situation and public opinion this year. The "chaos" in Taiwan are mainly manifested in:
The first is to lead to chaos in cross-strait relations. The DPP and Cai Yingwen won the 2016 election victory under the banner of “maintaining the status quo on both sides of the strait”. However, after the DPP and Tsai Ing-wen took office, they refused to recognize the "1992 Consensus." The official exchanges between the two sides of the strait were interrupted, creating a deadlock and disorder in the two sides of the strait, and breaking the status quo of peaceful development of cross-strait relations. And the so-called "Island resistance to the United States" route of the Cai authorities and a series of "de-Chineseization" and "Taiwan independence" actions, in particular, the Cai authorities are willing to play American pawns, actively respond to the United States ’Indian-Pacific strategy, and continue to increase the risks across the Taiwan Straits, exacerbating The cross-strait confrontation situation. However, Cai Yingwen ’s deputy, Lai Qingde, has repeatedly emphasized that “he is a pragmatic 'Taiwan independence' worker”, which shows that Cai Yingwen is actively moving towards “independence” forces for next year ’s election and will move from “flexible Taiwan independence” to “radical” The "Taiwan independence" change will undoubtedly add greater risk factors and create more chaos to cross-strait relations.
The second is the chaos of the election. This year is the year of elections in Taiwan, but the elections are chaotic and unprecedented. 1. Chaos in the primary election. When the Kuomintang and the KMT were in the party's primary election, it was called "chaotic". Judging from the Kuomintang primaries, the rules of the primaries have changed. After South Korea ’s victory, Guo Taiming and Wang Jinping each planned to make a deal, which caused the Kuomintang to be bruised. The DPP primaries are even more amazing. The primaries have been repeatedly changed, time has been delayed, and they are tailor-made for Tsai Ing-wen. 2. Fake news smears the chaos of smearing. The main axis of this election deviated from the normal track. Fake news and news spread all over the sky, smeared and smeared opponents, and filled the media space and cyberspace. Even if the call was in the primaries stage, Cai Yingwen's cyber army was relentless in attacking Lai Qingde. Yang Yan's case revealed the ugly behavior of the Cai authorities in cyberbullying. 3. The list of "not divided legislators" is chaotic. After the Kuomintang's "non-partitioned legislators" list was released, it showed a list of faction splits, which shocked the audience and screamed inside and outside the party, which seriously affected the party's image. 4. The media is reduced to chaos. The Tsai authorities have increased their control over the media, bought media to serve the DPP, and 90% of the island ’s media political tendency has become green. This is a strange phenomenon that has never happened in Taiwan. The media does not supervise the ruling party, but it must supervise it. The opposition party has become a rioter and accomplice of the ruling party, which can be described as a media chaos. 5, policy of buying tickets chaos. For the next year's elections, the Tsai authorities have issued a series of "benefiting people" policies, and have sent hundreds of billions of cheques for "benefiting people" policies. For example, high-speed rail south extension project, tourist coupons, large-scale agricultural machinery subsidies, 2.55 billion compensation for Lanyu, and so on, all these are to buy tickets for the election policy. Some netizens in Taiwan ridiculed that now that they know to attract the people for the election, they have already done something to eat. 6. Controversy in polls. In order to suppress the opponents of the election, the Tsai authorities ran polling agencies to announce polls that are in their favor, creating panic for their opponents and detracting from them. So much so that the KMT candidate, Korean Yu, appealed to supporters and refused to answer the polls, and let the DPP know what a true poll is when they vote. It can be seen that the chaos of the polls is unprecedented.
The third is the chaos of economic development. In order to get rid of economic dependence on mainland China, the Tsai authorities put forward the so-called "new southward" policy of the economy. More than three years have passed without any results. Taiwanese businessmen talk with their feet. Where is the right place to invest? Where is the investment environment? Where can I get more benefits? Taiwanese businessmen are the clearest. So where do Taiwanese businessmen invest? They will not be confused by the "new southward" slogan of the Cai authorities, nor will they be led away. The Tsai authorities ’economic“ new southward trend ”turned into“ new difficult trend ”and declared failure. On the issue of energy policy, under the banner of "nuclear-free home", the Cai authorities departed from Taiwan's reality and abandoned nuclear power arbitrarily without scientific evidence, which caused Taiwan to become a power-deficient region and affected enterprises' investment in Taiwan. Willingness also affects people's electricity consumption. Later, Cai ’s energy policy had a “hairpin dome,” and had to use nuclear energy to face himself. All these indicate that the Tsai authorities' economic disorder and disorder are also reflected in their incompetence, arrogance and abuse of power.
Fourth, the chaos of the curriculum. As soon as the DPP and the Tsai authorities came to power, they were engaged in a series of "de-Chineseization" actions, especially starting with education, extending the hand of "Taiwan independence" into the textbooks, modifying the syllabus beyond recognition, and deliberately cutting off The connection between Taiwan ’s history and culture and mainland China, from the textbooks to disrupt the connection with Chinese culture, and from the youth to engage in “Taiwan independence” education, so that Taiwanese teenagers ca n’t find where Taiwan ’s history comes from and the root of Taiwan ’s history and culture . They included Chinese history in East Asian history, and reduced the content of ancient texts in Chinese textbooks. Until now, the history textbooks for high schools in Taiwan have been revised in the direction of "Taiwan independence", and have not been revised, and even the teacher's lesson preparation work for next year will be affected. Teachers and parents have expressed strong opposition and dissatisfaction with textbooks with a tendency of "Taiwan independence".
Fifth, the basic ethical disorder in society. After the "referendum" was held last year, most people opposed to same-sex marriage, but the Cai authorities did the opposite, relying on the majority advantage of the "Legislative Yuan" to force adoption of same-sex marriage legislation, and blatantly departed from public opinion. On the surface, the Tsai authority said "humble and humble, then humble", but in fact it was "arrogant and haughty." Tsai Ing-wen said eloquently that the people of Taichung owed Lin Jialong an "apology". Now the DPP and the Tsai authorities have asked the curator Chen Zhihan to serve as the captain of the "I Wrong Brigade", forcing the citizens of Kaohsiung to admit their mistakes. The people are heaven, and the people are the parents of the governors. However, the DPP and the Tsai authorities stand on the opposite side of the people. This is the only way to bully and humiliate the people in this way!
Sixth is the "green terror" chaos. After the Tsai authorities came to power, they were unable to reopen the official cross-strait communication channels, so they used various means to block non-governmental exchanges between the two sides. Such as the adoption of the "Five Laws of the National Security", the amendments to the "Communist Agent Law" and the "Reverse Infiltration Law" to promote green terror. In order to suppress the Kuomintang, the Cai authorities, under the banner of "transition justice," set up "East Factory" institutions such as the "Improper Party Property Processing Committee" to carry out a large liquidation of the Kuomintang. Under the terror and high pressure of the Tsai authorities, the people intentionally created to block cross-strait civil exchanges. The people were very frightened. The vast number of Taiwanese businessmen who walked across the Strait felt unprecedented pressure to return Taiwan to the chaos of the white terror.
Seventh, the so-called "friendship" and "break of diplomatic relations" in Taiwan. The Tsai authorities lost seven so-called "states of diplomatic relations" more than three years after taking office, and even lost two "friends" in the week of this year, setting a record in Taiwan's history. This fully shows that the failure of the Cai authorities to handle cross-strait relations directly affects the consolidation of their so-called "friendship" and the current chaos of "broken diplomacy" is inevitable.
Eight is the chaos of reform. When the Tsai authorities came to power, they did not use their energy to promote Taiwan ’s economic development and improve people ’s livelihood, but rather engaged in ideological struggles to create party opposition and ethnic opposition. The so-called reforms, such as "one case and one break", "annuity reform", "double increase in oil and power", and "abandoned nuclear power", have not touched on the substance. They are more concerned with elections and the interests of specific groups, creating social panic and disorder. Like. Therefore, there is no objection from the public.
The above is just a list of eight aspects of chaos, and there may be more chaos, which is limited in space and is no longer exhaustive. With so many chaos in Taiwan, how can it develop well? How can people's livelihood be improved? How can the people have a sense of gain and happiness? There is no continuity in a social policy. It is impossible for the political and personal interests of the parties to fight ideologically all day long. The source of these chaos came from the DPP and the Tsai authorities. They created these chaos in one hand, causing chaos in Taiwan's economic and social development, leading to the decline of people's livelihood, democracy and freedom, and the suffering of the people.
The Taiwan leader election in 2020 will be a major turning point in changing this chaotic phenomenon. Whether the DPP and the Tsai authorities, which are the sources of chaotic phenomena, will be removed from the chaos, will it really achieve chaos anyway, and it will be a healthy and orderly democratic development society in Taiwan? The people of Taiwan have chosen. (China Taiwan Network Contributing Authors: my heart flying)
