the thing that most people dont understand why Chinese people feel this way is that China had too many things stolen/robbed in recent history ,and China is always one and whole country since the beginning. Culture also plays a big part in it. Just imagine you are a kid that always gets picked up by bullies in school, your phones get stolen and it happened too many times in your childhood, then you grew up, worked out, got a degree. Now you are big in a way, imagine what you will do when you see that bully with your phone on his desk? ps: if this ever happens, first, tell your parents and teachers about the incident, bullying is not cool. Second, if that ever ends up happening, I mean yea, you can punch the guy and take the phone back, but you have to pay for his medical bills or facing a potential lawsuit. Or you could just take it back and call him a lil bitch and walk away, and bois, wise man will make sure things like that will never happen. Therefore, the more important thing that comes out of it is not you getting back your phone, what's more important is you don't let those kind of things happen again. well, if it's your sister or brother that's missing, that's a different story. Just go beat the guy up and cover his medical bill and I call that mercy.

As Chinese, I do think the weird ambiguous status quo is probably the best option right now. I also think majority of the population in taiwan consider themselves as Chinese descent and most seek unification. I guess they don't like Chinese goverment and I understand. However, some of the measures have to be taken as China is playing an important diplomatic role in the world. And trust me on this, nobody cares about taiwan, not the people who tell you to grab a gun and fight for your independence, and please dont deeply relate yourself to those people. Nobody cares more about taiwan than Chinese people as taiwan has played a major role in the modern history of China, it's kinda like a scar that never fully heals. I don't think Chinese people want to resolve all this by military measures either. Most internet comments that you see on the internet about resolving with military force is mostly by people showing frustration. At the end of the day, everyone is for himself in a world that's vastly driven by economics, technology and military. Just like nobody cares about what taiwanese think as they are all trying to get the most benefit out of it. Therefore, think for yourself and remember that Chinese people will always stand by you as a whole. I dont think unifcation will happen anytime soon, really unfortunate. But I do hope to see it happen someday in the near future.

Stopped watching this clown a while ago. I guess antiChina IS political correctness now. Implying that Taiwan is an independent country is in the same way questioning the legitmacy of the US civil war lol. Taxas should've gone independent and California should have the right to go independent. Same goes for Northern Ireland. I used to think John Oliver is any different given the amount of social issues he covers. But welp, this episode says it all - just as hypocritical and disgusting.

The world needs to get a backbone and clearly stand up to Communist autocratic China. The status quo should be, We fully support and formally recognize Tiawan as an independent country. And if Communist China chooses to ban and destroy trade and diplomatic relationships with such Tiawanese democracy supporters, let China melt away in the background as a corrupt and sick beast, separated from the democratic world due to its stubbornness. It frustrates me that we continuously empower China in multiple ways, including to let them dictate formal relationships with a clearly independent Taiwan. The Communist beast of China needs to be weakened, but it will not if we are spineless and silent and kiss the ass of the Pooh.

Chinas' CCP likes things they can take without engineering, paying for, or inventing for themselves. Taiwans' TSMC would be a very strategic business to put in their countries' portfolio of businesses they are going to destroy with neglect and incompetence. All they need is for Taiwan to roll over and surrender because if the PLA invades all that will be created is debt, garbage, poverty, and a lot of dead of which China already has plenty.

About the strategic ambiguity regarding Taiwan, or ambiguity in any situation of life is; if it's not a 'yes' it's a 'no'. So, when you hear US speaking in ambiguous terms about Taiwan without committing to a 'yes' assume it's a very clear 'no'. If anyone refutes the 'no' but continues to be ambiguous (again regarding any situation of life), just tell them to 'bugger off'. You'll be happier you did and less appointed in the future.

It all reminds me a bit about the time of German division. An "Embassy" was called "Staendige Vertretung" (permanent representation) because West Germany (BRD) did not accept East Germany (DDR) as a sovereign country and DDR wanted first and foremost to achieve exactly this recognition. So the DDR wanted full blown diplomatic relations, i.e, embassies, while BRD wanted none as they claimed the right to speak for all Germans. Eventually the compromise of "Staendige Vertretung" was achieved. Of course the geopolitical situation was quite different in that BRD had the full backing of NATO and the Western world and DDR could count on the Warsaw Pact and the Soviet Union. We all know how the German question was ultimately resolved and this may not be the answer for Taiwan / China. I believe however (not just because of Taiwan) the democracies of the world should adopt a firmer stand when it comes to the PR China. Nobody even talks about Tibet anymore, sometimes the issue of the Uighurs still comes up but is increasingly sidelined by the fate of one single tennis player. The utter environmental destruction China commits (not only) to build the venues for the Winter Olympiad are mind-blowing. But we all know why these matters are not openly criticized. Any other country doing same would be under constant diplomatic and economic pressure. Only the bully in East Asia is not and will therefore continue to bully, become bolder, grow bigger and stronger and more dangerous.

​@Efraín García 1898 is not relevant. That's the way the world worked back then. "Might makes right" and "Do unto others as they would do unto you, but do it first." By current standards, everyone was evil back then. The US should be given credit for leading the world past that kind of evil when the US emerged as the supreme power on the planet in the aftermath of WW2 and used its power to change the system to what we know today. Your claim that the USA government will not accept Puerto Rican statehood is not grounded in reality. 60% of the people of the 50 states support Puerto Rican statehood. The Republicans in the Senate will not be able to go against that percentage forever. The American people recognize that intransigence on this issue is immoral, and so it is almost inevitable that Puerto Rico will become a state at some point. That may take years or possibly even decades, but it will almost certainly happen eventually.

@yop yop USA invaded the country in 1898, we did not invite the Americans. In fact, the political turmoil in Cuba, it was not related to us. It doesn't matter how many plebiscites any alternative will results chosen by Puerto Rican people if the government of USA does not define which status alternatives are acceptable on the table. USA government will not accept the statehood but it continues promoting this political formula. Are you seriously belief that the Donald Trump followers will accept an hispanic state into the Union? Don't kidding with me!

Before 2020, all previous sovereignty referenda in Puerto Rico indicated a preference for remaining a commonwealth. That status was acceptable to the people of the 50 states as well. Puerto Rico was a commonwealth because the majority of Puerto Rican voters wanted Puerto Rico to be a commonwealth. 2020 was the first time that the majority of voters in a Puerto Rican sovereignty referendum voted for statehood. That's the first critical step, but this is like marriage-- the other partner has to agree, too. Polling in the 50 states says that over 60% of Americans support welcoming Puerto Rico into the Union as the 51st state. However, there is a motivated minority that oppose Puerto Rican statehood. Eventually, it seems all but certain that Puerto Rico will become a state, but the politics of how that happens will undoubtedly be messy and drawn out. Democracy takes time. The situation with Puerto Rico has been entirely in line with the Puerto Ricans' universal natural right of self determination. In contrast, the PRC has threatened to invade Taiwan if the Taiwanese ever tried to hold a referendum on Taiwanese sovereignty. The PRC has clearly violated the people of Taiwan's universal natural right of self determination.

Taiwan is the Original China, CCR isn't. The whole entity should be Taiwan not other way around. Heart of Qing Dynasty ❤❤

I think that it's funny to look at the Chinese power dynamic from a Chinese made TV, Tablet or smart phone made in China. Funnier still to look at the military math and available man power and weapons and realize that discussions about Taiwan are completely theoretical.. China can and will do what it wants with Taiwan and no country or countries can do anything about it. And silliest of all is Australia, If the US gets into a disagreement,war at whatever level w China, Australia will be attacked or vaporized and then China will text the US and say..ok that's a taste of what's to come, what's your next move? There are many other possible scenarios but it all goes something like.. will the US be willing to go to war w China over Hong Kong, Taiwan, anything that happens in the South China Sea? Yes or no, pick a pivot point.. China will flex it's muscle and the US has no good options to respond. Reality says that Americans don't care about American democracy so there is zero political will for Americans to fight and die for Chinese territories..

It is funny that when u see a white man speaking in Chinese, u would find it amusing; but when someone like us a Chinese speaking in English, you'd find it "normal".

Two v-tubers were suspended because they were reading their YouTube statistics mentioning Taiwan as one of the countries with the most viewers. This also lead to intense harassment from the mainlanders which should not have access in YouTube in the first place.

Taiwanese here, funny thing is that Taiwanese culture values scholars in politics, so many of the parliamentary members that throw water balloons and pig guts are PhDs.
