One just wonder why some still choose to be ignorant and steadfast in its policy since after the 50s and have yet to notice that changes in today's world is fast moving at a pace that the old idealogy is no longer relevant and outdated. That altitude of still hugging to the old policy of not willing change is making them lurking behind in Asia in particular.

China begin that change in the 80s and today they are the world 2nd biggest economy and could be 1st if they chose to challenge that position. Apart from economy in term of political agenda, now even North Korea is stepping out into the open and accept that challenge from their hermit state position toward an openness society. The world is watch their every moves including the unification with the south and are willing to denuclearized itself in the making.

Yet another is still lingering behind even though it has the potential to become a fast track economy but due to its century old policy refuse to accept today's challenges and changes. If you are thinking what I am thinking then you are right, Taiwan. Till today that party still hugging to the old policy of not accepting what China is today when even the rest of the world look otherwise. Choosing by not willing to move ahead, Taiwan is much more like living in a sphere where they can only breathe in an atmosphere of confined space. Not willing to accept changes is also putting its people into a confined society.

Those that can move out of Taiwan has already moved, including industries and much more. Those that seek for better opportunities too has already gone and the clearest aspect are those that is waiting to move on an opportunity is just queuing an wait. Simply, not accepting a One China policy is not going to put Taiwan in a better position but rather isolation. One point of contention is if Kim Jong-un of North Korea is able to see the bright prospects at the end of the tunnel why can't Taiwan. He is even also willing to denuclearized North Korea for that prospect then why not Taiwan. If he can and willing to unified with the south then why Taiwan cannot accept that fact

Because for DPRK the "bright prospects" are a move upward. For Taiwanese, the path you seek would be a move downward.

Even if some solution to satisfy Taiwanese could be reached, would it serve the One China as whole?

One must consider whether yet another Special Administration Zone would do more harm or good. Mainland itself is still so divided and unbalanced geographically and economically - does it need to increase that with multiple political systems.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
