Also moving to the jobs in the west (somewhat due to mineral exploitation).

Nature publishing an article pointing out the obvious: "China: How science made a superpower"

 

 

 
The opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing featured ancient China’s four great inventions: the compass, printing press, paper and gunpowder. The lesson on display, as taught in classrooms across the country that today publishes the most research papers, is that Chinese innovation in science and technology changed the world.
Yet less than a hundred years before, the Chinese philosopher Feng Youlan wrote the provocative essay ‘Why China Has No Science1. The scholar — trained at Columbia University in New York City — argued that from antiquity, the nation’s philosophical traditions and unique understanding of the human relationship to nature had prevented the spirit of scientific inquiry from taking root. Feng, like many others at the time and since, urged that science was the only salvation for a nation in precipitous decline.
 


Placing the efforts to change the perceived lack of science in the context of China’s turbulent modern history is key to understanding how the nation arrived at its current superpower state. The red thread that runs through China’s past 150 years is its unwavering belief in science as the path to wealth and power. The entangled relationship between research and nationalism in China has obscured how this belief grew from a combination of foreign influence and Chinese adaptation. Particularly in the 1960s and 1970s, the Chinese government tried to focus on home-grown science, and succeeded in areas such as agriculture and medicine. But in the longer view, the periods of greatest advancement were those when China opened to outside influence.
 
(..)

By 1863, mathematicians Xu Shou and Hua Hengfang built China’s first steamship, using illustrations from a missionary magazine as a guide. They then helped to establish a translation bureau that introduced numerous scientific works to China. By the end of the nineteenth century, many more Chinese people were convinced that what made the West rich and powerful was science and technology. Thousands of students ventured abroad to study, many to Japan. Seeing science as the way to alleviate their country’s woes, they returned home eager to establish their fields.

 

(...)

Actually a good read, but the socalled western world has been busy decadently putting their money into bad investements like bank bailouts, as banks do not produce anything. Or lots of blahblah industries like media or a blown out of proportion academia with lots and lots of useless classes.

Ask Google or Siri: "What is Taiwan?"
 
"A state", they will answer, "in East Asia".
 
But earlier in September, it would have been a "province in the People's Republic of China".
 
For questions of fact, many search engines, digital assistants and phones all point to one place: Wikipedia. And Wikipedia had suddenly changed.
 
The edit was reversed, but soon made again. And again. It became an editorial tug of war that - as far as the encyclopedia was concerned - caused the state of Taiwan to constantly blink in and out of existence over the course of a single day.
 
"This year is a very crazy year," sighed Jamie Lin, a board member of Wikimedia Taiwan.
 
"A lot of Taiwanese Wikipedians have been attacked."

This is essentially what happens when two competing propaganda outlets collide.

Chicom web trolls don't understand that the CCP claim on Taiwan is not legitimate and just comply with inflexible CCP policy.

The correct answer is that it depends on what answer will benefit the particular Taiwanese/Republic of Chinese being asked the most at any particular moment.

There are 3 views in Taiwan, and in order as to which setiment is most prevelant.

1. Taiwan is an independent island nation that complies with the One-China policy for the sake of sustainable relations with the PRC and US on the official internationl arena.
2. Taiwan is a province of the Republic of China. Adhearing to the One-China policy still leaves ambiguity asto which China is the one. As KMT, it'll naturally default to KMT as the one China.
3. Taiwan is a province of the PRC. This is the least held view in Taiwan.

The arabs of North Africa who owned multiple sets of flags, to be displayed or hidden depending on the proximity of Eighth Army or Afrika Korps, come to mind.

The actualy circumstances regarding Taiwan itself comes to mind. Either 1 or 2 is fine. Their choice. Only 3 is the bad one.

Essentially, two sets of circumstances affecting the Taiwanese/Republic of Chinese consequently giving rise to two competing propaganda outlets.

Which the Taiwan side is far less abusive with propaganda about it than the CCP side. Proper recognition would help.

The more abusive the both sides are with it, the better, as ethnic Chinese infighting creates Japanese room to maneuver.

That is besides the point. Taiwan does not belong to the PRC no matter how hard CCP trolls try to pass 1+1=3.
