Taipei Diary
Peter Bialobrzeski

“In 1949 the Kuomintang, led by Chiang Kai Shek, fled the mainland to take refuge in Taiwan. They declared Taipei the provisional capital of the Republic of China. […] The Kuomintang believed for a long time in the provisional. That resulted in an underdeveloped infrastructure and an overspend on “defence”, which in reality was saving up for aggression. The exile to the island of Formosa was only a step on the way to kicking Mao and his Reddies out of the mainland. You don’t have to visit Taiwan to find that idea very amusing when you look at “Red China” today.” – Extract from Taipei Diary
