Yu Beichen said that he was first inspired to join the army by the TV series “15 and 20”, which aimed to “protect Taiwan” and “save the country”. Later, when I became a major general, I realized that “Many generals can lead the army and fight, but many generals cannot communicate with the people.”He believed That he was capable and understood that “only if you are willing to take off your military uniform can you communicate with people.” Therefore, he “decided to step down and take up the microphone to protect the national spirit and the national army.” ,Republic of China“Unleash the will of the people” and turn from an official who gives orders and responds to them, into a public official who must carry out the mission assigned to him by the voters.

There has never been any scope for ambiguity in Xi Jinping’s case. The only People’s Republic of China that does not want to reunify is Taiwan’s independence. Under such circumstances, we can no longer talk about the 1992 consensus, but we must talk about “cross-strait non-subordination”.

Xiaohongshu spreads specific false information for position, guides the public and public opinion, and achieves specific political goals.

Yu Beichen pointed out that as a democratic country, Taiwan cannot ban social media platforms like the CCP, but the Legislative Yuan is discussing how to find a balance between democracy and counter-intelligence warfare at the national level. How to use security laws. He called on the Taiwanese people to have confidence in Taiwan, not to abandon themselves, and to recognize and protect independence and democracy. The government must not have a strong will politically and remain tied to the world economically, so that it may have few diplomatic ties but many cooperative partners…
