Like it or not, the native Taiwanese consider themselves superior to the Chinese on the mainland.
This is a prime example of the trouble-maker attitude most TIers seem to share. Like it or not, without the KMT, Taiwan wouldn't be where it is today. You think Taiwan would be one of the Asian Tigers today if it weren't for the KMT rule? Not a chance in hell! Without the KMT, Taiwan would still be a backward farming island!!!
edit: FYI to the Japanese, Taiwanese are not even close to being treated as 2nd class. During WW2, Japan used occupied people (i.e. Korean, Taiwanese) as forced soldiers and comfort women. Thus the hatred of Japanese often exhibitted by the older generations of Koreans today. And yet we have someone here who feels superior to his own people because his ancestors were former Japanese slaves? Why don't you ask those women that were used as comfort women or those soldiers that were forced into a war that didn't concern them, how they feel about being under Japanese rule?
Like I said keep on living your pipe dreams!
