Thank you, minister, for having us. My name is Juan. I’m a first year MPP student at Yale. I’m from Argentina. And I have one particular question. We’ve seen in this last decade, new leaders emerge all over the world, from the US to Argentina, that actually use polarization as an asset. So while for civil society, polarization is a problem, for some politicians, it’s an asset, and politicians reap great rewards by polarizing society. So what I was wondering is, first, whether your ministry is doing anything to prevent political parties within Taiwan to polarize society. And if so, how do you think we could persuade politicians? How do you think we could create incentives for politicians to actually get out of the polarization trap? Because while for the rest of society, polarization is bad, for some of them, it’s pretty good.
