Reputations do matter

30 years after Taiwan came out from authoritarian rule, it’s now having conversations of how judges then used to be corrupt and did the work of the authoritarian ruling government.

“Whereas grand justices would rule independently in a functioning democracy, they served as puppets of the authoritarian government during the Martial Law era.”

Sounds familiar?

Reputations do matter. If people do not want their children to carry the burden of their shame in future, then they have to act righteous now, so that they can be celebrated for doing the right thing.

    SG is approx. 30 years behind time of TW.
    Both countries had elected presidential system about the similar time. The similar part was also where the differences grew wider apart as time goes by.

    TW gets more democratic while SG walks the reverse. If i am not too rude, i say we are getting more like mini CN each day. We are walking a narrow path towards a chaotic history if the projection continue its path.

    When TW is being threathened today, a democratic nation empowered its citizen to fight for the nation willingly because each has an open and democratic stake in their country.

    However, asking how willing we will fight for this country? I bet the answer is not surprising. Do you, my fellow countrymen…

    I had always wanted to ask my fellow countrymen these question:
    Lee Kuan Yew vs Chiang Ching-kuo,
    Who was a stronger leader?
    Who had better wisdom?
    Who loved his country more?
    And who left his people with power to defend the country.

    I am still waiting for one man to jump out of his grave.
