    Changing for Better !

    Both Mainland China and Taiwan are changing. They are all changing for better.

    China- Since Deng, people's living standard has improved significantly. People began to have freedom (to a great extent except politics). Although there still have a lot to be improved, but they have a great start and it's just a beginning.

    Taiwan- Junior Chiang began the changes. Today, they have the full democracy. You can't be corrupted and incompetent to be in Power. People, especially the young generation, are forming a new force to monitor the government to steer towards the right direction.

    Although there are a lot of criticism on both sides, but with time and commitment, both of them will get there, if they can continue the way they have been improving themselves.

    • You are a real Hitler fan!

      Just like Lien/Song, keep on losing but not knowing what's the real reason is?

      Please define "better":
      1. Are the average ROC citizens financially better today than 16 years ago?
      2. Are the ROC officials more or less "corrupted and incompetent" than 16 years ago?
      3. Do the average ROC citizens have more or less freedom of information today than 16 years ago?

      • " 1. Are the average ROC citizens financially better today than 16 years ago? "

        - Taiwanese people used their votes to tell you what's their preferred choices in the past may years. Get real, don't fool yorself!

        " 2. Are the ROC officials more or less "corrupted and incompetent" than 16 years ago? "

        - Of course they are much less corrupted than before. The reason why you heard more now is because now it's more transperent & democratic. People have the right to report and criticize.
        - Very few people (if it was not none) in China in old days can criticize the Communist China. Because they couldn't do that, otherwise they would be in trouble.

        3. Do the average ROC citizens have more or less freedom of information today than 16 years ago?

        - You still live in your own old world, not opening up your mind to see differences in freedom people have today- Just look at how many newspapers/publishers, political parties, groups etc.
        - Could people criticize the way they do today before? Even new generation in KMT realizes the mistakes their old generation people made before and urging for changes. Same in China, the government and people know what kind of challenges they are facing and making adjustment today.

    • " China- Although there still have a lot to be improved, but they have a great start and it's just a beginning.

      Taiwan- Today, they have the full democracy. You can't be corrupted and incompetent to be in Power. "

      - Fair comment! Good Post!
