Concerned about World Turmoil, Especially Risks in the Taiwan Strait
— Video Conference on November 4
— by Tian Mu (Germany)
The world is in turmoil, and there is smoke and fire. As the Russian army’s invasion of Ukraine and the war in Europe are still continuing, the Hamas’s attack on Israel broke out in the Middle East, igniting war between Israel and Palestine. The crisis of war in the Taiwan Strait in Asia has always been the world’s biggest worry. In recent years, European media have continued to issue warnings: “Taiwan is the most dangerous place on earth.”
Upholding freedom, democracy and world peace is everyone’s responsibility, and no one can stay out of it. For Chinese democrats and the democratic movement, the Taiwan issue is not only a theme of current international politics, but also an important political issue and task for the Chinese democratic movement. The original intention and goal of the Chinese democratic movement is to establish China’s constitutional democratic system. Taiwan is a beacon of democracy for Chinese people all over the world and an example for the democratic movement to learn from. From the perspective of freedom and democratic values, the Chinese democratic movement should stand unhesitatingly on the side of the world’s democratic camp and safeguard and defend Taiwan’s democracy and security.
The ancients said: “A gentleman thinks about danger and takes precautions against it.” That is to say: a gentleman is prepared for danger in times of peace, thus can take precautions before it happens.
