IT’s about money and the prestige that comes with having more money than someone else.

Right now, Taiwan’s GDP per capita ($48,000) is three time China’s ($16,000) so Taiwanese are naturally reluctant to share their fortunes with the poorer mainland.

Since Chinese wages are doubling every ten years, they will not catch Taiwan’s until 2034, so an overwhelming majority of Taiwanese may not be willing to rejoin the mainland until then.

Taiwan’s excuse for separation is that it is democratic while China is not, but that is simply false. China is one of the world’s leading democracies and, democratically, Taiwan would be much better off under China’s than under its own antiquated, corrupt, undemocratic and inefficient system.

Of course, it could happen sooner if Taiwan finds itself completely isolated from the rest of the world, a process that is happening gradually right now. In that case, Taiwan’s airlines gradually lose landing rights at most of the world’s airports, Taiwanese passports won’t be recognized anywhere and their educational qualifications will be invalid at the world’s universities. But reunification would probably happen before things became that dire.

Yes, it's about money and the relative strengths and soft power of China and the US.

Yale Guen Mar, do you continue to hold a grudge against Taiwan?

Yale Guen Mar, were you not denied visas to Taiwan and to Italy because of facts bought to the notice of authorities by relatives of Judah and Valentina ?

Judah's relatives have already taken legal steps to prevent Yale Guen Mar's attempt to visit Taiwan.

Valentina's relatives haven't been any more generous. The Buonamicis have already told Yale Guen Mar, "You don't have to come to Boston, let alone to Lucca, Tuscany. We'll come to see you in Merced, CA". The Buonamicis are justifiably worried about any unsupervised contact between Yale Guen Mar and Valentina or Luca.

Yale Guen Mar will always be denied entry into Italy just as he has been denied entry into Taiwan.

Yale Guen Mar is "made in China" even though Yale Guen Mar claims that the sperms were sent from USA by mail to his mother by his alleged biological father.

Yale Guen Mar has lasted 79 years.

But there are issues:

Yale Guen Mar cannot pee, let alone ejaculate, without a catheter.

Meichi Thai has to apply Tiger Balm and Preparation H religiously to Yale Guen Mar's hemorrhoid scarred asshole every evening at 7 PM and at other times as necessary.

Yale Guen Mar's incontinence forces him to be on diaper 24/7.

Yale Guen Mar has been adviced to surgically remove his middle fingers atrophied from years of STD infection.

Yale Guen Mar, you live in a glass house. It isn't prudent of you to throw stones at other houses. Just stay put inside 3851 Twilight Avenue in Merced, CA. Lie still on your bed pan as long as Meichi Thai wants you to, and more. Keep the neighborhood clean.

I knew a Taiwanese girl in the early 1970s.
She was making arrangement for me to go to Taiwan to meet her parents when I changed jobs. Never saw her again.
Yale Guen Mar, change of jobs makes very little difference to someone like you - you just go from waiting tables at one Cantonese restaurant to another. So that couldn't have been the reason you got dumped.

Most likely she suspected, heard of, or saw your extra curricular activities with pigs.

Judah's relatives have already taken legal steps to prevent Yale Guen Mar's attempt to visit Taiwan.

Yale Guen Mar will be denied entry to Italy just as he has been denied entry to Taiwan.
