The only realistic way to unite Taiwan and Mainland, is to wait until mainland's reforms reach a state where the two are compatible.|
First and foremost, that requires Beijing to be more transparent and proactive in determining the future of HK beyond 2047. Taiwanese will not accept Beijing administration if they either don't know what will happen in HK, or are not happy with whatever happens there. And Beijing shouldn't want more systems in one country than it can handle.
But as we speak, Bejing is just drifting more apart. With current developments, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to unite peacefully, and doing it by any other means will get Taiwan to Beijing, while losing much of the rest of the world.
Essentially the problem is, that Beijing does not really accept a "One China" entity that is above the PRC and above the party.
If it did, it would simple to unite under such One China, and other countries could recognize and interact with this entity as a real country rather than imaginary construct.
They would have diplomatic relations with this One China, rather than choosing between either Tapei or Beijing, and One China would deal with internal governance with it's two (or more) constituents.
But this will not happen, because CPC wil not accept leadership from such One China.
One can also ask, what concrete reasons does Beijing have for wanting Taiwan. None, other than keeping it from going its own way, because that would send conflicting messages to other regions that China really needs.
