Why does the DPP always struggle with the bronze statue of Chiang Kai Shek when so many Japanese occupied buildings are not demolished?

Taiwan’s “Committee for promoting transformation and justice” (“transfer promotion”) recently announced the transformation plan of the “Zhongzheng Memorial Hall”, which advocates changing it into a “reflection authoritarian Historical Park”, removing the bronze statue of Chiang Kai Shek in the hall and transforming the hall.

Today’s “presidential palace” is the governor’s house during the Japanese occupation.

From then on until the Wushe incident in 1930, Taiwan’s aborigines revolted and armed resistance against Japan was never cut off.

According to Japanese rule, the residence of the ruling organs and colonizers gathered in the old city of Taipei.

Shi Weiquan once served as a policy adviser of the mainland Commission in the Ma Ying Jeou government.

The fourth governor, tairo eryuyuan, proposed that the Japanese faith take root in Taiwan and demonstrate the royal authority by building shrines and official residences.

Chiang Kai Shek should step down from the so-called “altar” and transform the meaning of space, not only the hardware.

Whether it is the Japanese occupied buildings or the memorial hall of the Kuomintang authoritarian era, demolition and reconstruction are the most brutal way to face historical buildings.

“Zhongzheng Memorial Hall” is located in the center of Taipei.


It is a political landmark in Taiwan to commemorate Chiang Kai Shek.

Perhaps Chiang Kai Shek knew that he would be grateful to the DPP for pestering him so far.

Before Chiang Kai Shek died, the Kuomintang’s propaganda and education made him a great man.

The design of taipei hotels is luxurious and costly.

Old buildings are historical relics, and they can’t erase the pain experienced during colonization.

How should the DPP treat such a stone lion with strong colonial significance today? The Japanese shrine that remains in Taiwan is a relic that links the colonists’ beliefs with the imperial authority.

Song Qinling once worked as a special reporter of Phoenix Satellite TV in Washington.

“After Chiang Kai Shek’s death, the Kuomintang government promulgated the” Chiang Kai Shek Memorial song “, which is sung all over Taiwan.

Then the archway is a 380 meter long Memorial Avenue, and then step on the 84 step granite ladder..

This is nothing more than a habit formed when I was young.

Our generation’s primary school textbooks have his story.

At the same time, they do not specify when to start.

Japan’s conquest of Taiwan also attempts to destroy Taiwan’s beliefs and customs.

The people of Taiwan have long deconstructed the authoritarian space of “Zhongzheng Memorial Hall” with their daily activities.

When he was young, Chiang Kai Shek watched the fish upstream of the river in Xikou Town, Fenghua, Zhejiang Province.

As we all know, since I was young, I have swept the floor and cooked by myself.

I am very hardworking.

After his death, he consolidated his image as a great man and further deified.

Today, Taiwanese have given new uses to old buildings and have a new interpretation.

“Zhongzheng Memorial Hall” The main gate of the Memorial Hall Park is an 80 meter wide and 30 meter high archway, equivalent to 10 floors high, which is the largest archway in Taipei.

For them, rebellion is the privilege of young people.

After my father died, I can’t help being bullied by others.

Even if they do not support the DPP, a considerable part of the younger generation who are concerned about politics do not feel that there is anything wrong.

After the Japanese demolished the temple, they moved a pair of stone lions guarding Taipei’s datianhougong to the garden behind the governor’s residence as furnishings.

How do the people of Taiwan view the “Zhongzheng Memorial Hall”? So many authoritarian buildings during the Japanese occupation were not demolished, why did the DPP authorities always want to demolish the bronze statue of Chiang Kai Shek? ▎ on the morning of June 6, Zhu lilun went to Taoyuan, Cihu and touliao to pay homage to the mausoleum core Abstract: 1.

The Japanese plundered Taiwan cultural relics and used them as the decoration of the imperial residence.

Why not rebuild or dismantle it? ▎ the “presidential palace” Taipei Hotel in Taipei is a European palace that the Japanese colonists are proud of.

The Democratic Progressive Party still wants to restore it; When they were in power in Taichung, they wanted to re erect the bird house that stood in Taichung Park during the Japanese occupation.

Editor’s note: on October 6, in view of the DPP authorities’ plan to transform the “Zhongzheng Memorial Hall” into a “historical park for introspection and authoritarianism” and to dismantle the bronze statue of Chiang Kai Shek, Zhu lilun, chairman of the Chinese Kuomintang, said that history should be respected and historical and cultural assets should not be destroyed.

Walking, dog riding and frisbee playing here on holidays are not important to those who play and gather here.

The lyrics say “You are the Savior of mankind, you are the great man of the world; you are the beacon of freedom, you are the great wall of democracy.” “great man” is the tone set by the Kuomintang regime to Chiang Kai Shek during the authoritarian period.

If the DPP did not hype “de Chiang Kai Shek”, who would care about the bronze statue of Chiang Kai Shek? The most miserable treatment of politicians is to be ignored, not criticized.

In 1895, the Japanese army took over Taiwan and encountered resistance from the Taiwanese before landing.

He will die for nearly half a century and is too far away from young people.

Phoenix.com’s “Taiwan sun and moon talk” invited anchor song Qinling to talk with Dr.

Chiang Kai Shek should step down from the “altar”, but leaving a bronze statue does not mean that young people in Taiwan will look up to the bronze statue like their grandfather’s generation in the future.


Shi Weiquan.

Whether it is a Japanese occupied building or a memorial hall in the authoritarian era of the Kuomintang, demolition and reconstruction are the most brutal way.

I always listen to my mother, be patient and sometimes be bullied My mother beat and scolded, but she didn’t complain at all, and she didn’t hate at all.

They think that leaders are all mortals.

Opposing authority and challenging the previous generation is the mark of the growth process.

The Kuomintang ruled Taiwan for more than half a century and beautified Chiang Kai Shek as a great man in order to build the rational basis of its “regime”.

Today, the Taiwan authorities have taken action to overthrow this “great man image”.

But now high school students and college students are not interested in these.

They regard the dead politicians as political ATMs and play tricks on them when they lose the support of the people.

Bird house is an architectural element of Japanese Shinto, which has nothing to do with Taiwan’s traditional beliefs.

The director of the Department of civil affairs, shinping goto, responded that “if you don’t see the strong house of the emperor, you can know the respect of the son of heaven?” Taiwan’s governor’s office and governor’s residence commend feudal imperial power, but the Democratic Progressive party never proposed transformation.

It is an important belief center in Northern Taiwan.

In order to plan modern parks for Japanese recreation, Taipei’s Imperial Palace was reverended.

The DPP’s proposal to transform the “Zhongzheng Memorial Hall” will intensify social conflicts and cover up the big loopholes in its vaccine policy.

The temple was jointly built by officials and people when Governor Liu Mingchuan ruled Taiwan in 1888.

The significance of transforming space is not only to transform hardware.

So now I’m busy all day, and my spirit is consistent.

The bird house in Taichung Park has been destroyed and abandoned, but the Democratic Progressive Party wants to reshape this symbol of colonial rule.

Today, the people of Taiwan have given them new uses and new interpretations.

Song Qinling: Taiwan society has different views on Chiang Kai Shek, and the evaluations of “wise leadership” and “dictatorship and centralization” coexist.

Why not remove the “image of a great man”? The problem is that there is a lot of “authoritarian space” in Taiwan.

It has been 76 years since Japan’s surrender.

The people have their own evaluation of the merits and demerits of Chiang Kai Shek in history.

▎ colonial buildings such as Taichung’s deserted shrine, bird house and Taipei Hotel do not need to be demolished.

He was inspired to realize that if people are not motivated, they will retreat if they don’t advance, so he achieved something for the country when he grew up; In the middle school textbooks, there is his article “serving the country and thinking about relatives”, highlighting loyalty, filial piety and integrity, as well as “an ordinary great man” written by Jiang Jingguo.

Both are Taiwan experts who have long been concerned about cross-Strait issues.

I obey my parents at home and respect my husband in school.

In the article, the author quotes Jiang Jieshi’s autobiography, which has an impact on growing children: “I know that I have this ability to serve the cause of saving the country and the people.

The DPP’s intention to overthrow the previous historical positioning of the KMT on Chiang Kai Shek’s shape angered many KMT supporters and caused waves in Taiwan’s political arena.

Shi Weiquan: the authoritarian architecture in the Japanese occupation era is a painful chapter in Taiwan’s history and the reason why the colonists massacred the Taiwanese.

The Japanese parliament questioned its necessity.

Why not dismantle the Japanese authoritarian buildings? Song Qinling: when the DPP authorities put forward the transformation plan of “Zhongzheng Memorial Hall”, they emphasized “transforming authoritarian space”, which moved some young people who advocate freedom.

It is also a famous tourist attraction.
