So it was the Dutch who originally invaded Taiwan or whatever you choose to call that island.

You are making progress, Bobby: you have finally started asking relevant questions rather than shooting your mouth off.

Your question, however, still shows bad animus. The Dutch, you can read that up in history books, did not invade Formosa. They came to set up trading stations. They did not take control over the island and the inhabitants there. That was what the Chinese did.

That's what you read in your fairy tale western history books.
The truth is all Europeans used genocide as their primary means of imperialism.
The Dutch were no better than the English, the Spanish, the Portuguese, the French, the Belgians, or any other marauding nation of genocidal, pathologically greedy Europeans over the past 500 years.
But you only believe your western masters don't you, little monkey.
   
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

The Dutch were the smartest world explorers and traders at that time, far ahead even of the Brits. The Chinese were not smart but they were willing to earn a living as immigrants under the Dutch in Formosa. Then they had to pay a tax and that riled them. As a result they staged a conflict. This brought the pirate Koxinga to the shores of Formosa. The rest is history that you benighted soul have perhaps already absorbed. What you did not learn and what the Chinese refuse to learn is that the Chinese invaders killed the Dutch and many Native people, then enslaved the murdered Dutchmen's wives and children. Remember, the Chinese settlers often were wifeless. They liked Dutch women though, more so since the Dutch women were made their property.

What I "believe" is my business; I stated a FACT, and a fact is what rational people accept.

A FACT in your mind but not the truth.
