Yeah, we are on-time.
Oh, yeah. Is it on?
It’s part of the foreword of 臺灣通史, the Taiwan history that talks about 「婆娑之洋 美麗之島」, whirling ocean and beautiful islands. What I really did yesterday was to write those eight characters, 「公民之國 在花之中」. Literally, a republic of citizens between flowers.
Just all day yesterday, all day yesterday. This first eight was our commonplace, everybody in Taiwan above my age, or even a bit under my age, learns it from the, I think, it’s high school textbook.
On there, it’s funny. I think it’s just…
“Whirling ocean, beautiful islands, a transcultural republic of citizens. Or maybe matter.”
Maybe I say it.
The back? This one?
It’s actually for you, because I was thinking about Switzerland, actually, and how this transcultural republic of citizens is a pretty good description of people from different cultures coming together by direct democracy.
This is I just wrote yesterday.
Right. But this is new.
“When we see the Internet of things, let’s make it an Internet of beings. When we see virtual reality, let’s make it a shared reality. When we see machine learning, let’s make it collaborative learning. When we see user experience, let’s make it about human experience. Whenever see that a ...
The first one, I’ll just go through it. Maybe it’s easier for the camera. I’m reading right here.
What else? The poems.
Then it shows the false-flag comic of this supposedly call for suiciders, but written in Cantonese that are not really right and spelled also incorrectly using Hanyu pinyin. When you actually join the group, you will see that it’s mostly spam. [laughs] Somebody probably trolled. [laughs]
This is not true. It shows why it’s not true, then it shows the picture, and then it shows the source of the picture.
From the very beginning?
It’ll be just a second. Another picture, and back to the picture.
Yes, let me search for one. There’s quite a few Hong Kong ones in the Taiwan FactCheck Center. It’s very much trending. That was the picture.
The Hong Kong one, yes. What would you like from the Hong Kong one?
Oh, the poem, yes.
I can also show the English translation if that that works. This is the English translation. I didn’t translate this part where it says if you perm your hair, you will damage your hair.
Focus on this one?
This is our premier getting a haircut. Maybe they were trying different ways of tackling this, but I think this one went more viral. As you can see, this is on the top of the search result.
Yeah, the hair thing, so maybe it’s good if I just Google and then we switch to pictures, and there you can see the clarification cards. These are the two clarification pictures, one from our premier and one from our deputy premier.
I can show you more videos, but these are the same. We mixed various different…
It’s fact-checked as false.
You can search for it, too.
I can search for it.
The protest student, yeah.
Yeah, the hair picture.
This, maybe here. We changed the regulations shortly afterward.
Here is the proposal.
To the top again where you see the proposal?
Neither the judicial branch can determine a political question directly, nor should the Ministry of Justice do so.
It is a response. Yes, it’s a political question, so here is where it cites the constitutional court’s ruling, saying that this is a major political question. According to the separation of powers constitutional idea, the branches are not in line to answer this directly.
The original one. The one from 2017.
We’re good? Great.
It says, if you propose something that is outside of the purview of the administration, then we will not enter the collection stage of the petition.
Because these are, by Constitution, something that the president has a say, but neither the ministers nor the administration have a say about. Because our petition system basically demark only responses from ministers, so we’ve changed the regulations pertaining to the petitions.
That’s right. Right after the original petition about a flag, we took a systemic view at what are the presidential purviews for political questions. These are issues concerning the Chinese continent, foreign policy, as well as national defense.
Will be subject to this 5,000-signature collecting.
