Great response by Bernie, but his answer is unfortunately very vague. The Taiwanese social media space is already filled with quotes of him apparently saying "if China invades, I will order military intervention"... I am not sure whether it is good that they are so optimistic.

Back in Ancient China, when someone breaks the law, everyone else in the family gets executed as well.

This is really sad. Many journalists are already put under intense psychological pressure when they work in China, with its visa system. via

It's a shame that before the election they were being deliberately ambiguous on Taiwan statehood and youth politics, which was what got them in the first place. We will see how they do next four years with KC Huang out office, replaced by less political professionals.

Visit night markets and popular tour sites that are begging for tourists! Might be a good idea to get away from cities. Go to Alishan or Yangmingshan for breezy Taiwanese winter walks in the forest.

“China’s J-11 locked into Taiwan’s F-16” during the Feb 9th provocative crossing into the middle line of the Strait, according to LTN news. Worth noting that this is published through a special report, now rarely seen in big media in TW.

One would find memes of it - completely unrelated to politics - on groups like the (in)famous Subtle Asian Traits on Facebook. It’s funny just because of how much they’ve targeted Asian populations in advertisements! I’ve seen it more than a few dozen times already.

“I say goodbye to the Pacific Ocean that has been with me for years,” Former Hualien Legislator Hsiao Bi Khim wrote on social media. Dropping hints as to where she will be for the upcoming personnel reshuffle?

I tried to explain why reporting on netizens is a horrible practice in a conversation a while ago... and his co-author writes on this with technical knowledge that I don’t have. Republishing info without independent fact-checking is as bad as spreading disinformation.

Was riding the Brussels bus a few days ago when a man covered his face and pointed at me... When you 1. get confused at people assuming you're "Chinese" 2. have people doing the same thing happen to you multiple times 3. realizing that they think you have "the disease"

"Friends, enemy, or court more" This is a common tactic used in China's "United Front Work" (統一戰線) work.

A batch of masks ordered by Chongqing City was intercepted by another city’s health admonistration. As supply runs short, it’s every province for themselves. Caixin is one of the few media that reported on the virus outbreak.

Wang is the original publisher of this disinformation on the alleged Chinese spy in Taiwan. I was surprised to hear this narrative as far away as DC, from another journalist who thought this was true.
