What’s really eating Xi’s heart out

In China on 29/12/2019 at 5:47 am

Taiwan houses one of the world’s great art collections. The National Palace Museum in Taipei has more than 650,000 antiquities and works of art, mostly from the historic imperial collections in the Forbidden City in Beijing,

The collection spans some 8,000 years, from the Neolithic to the modern. And everything from painting and calligraphy to bronzes, jades, lacquerware, ceramics and textiles.

Remember that about 3,000 crates of treasures from the National Beijing Palace Museum swam over to Taiwan as the government and army of Chiang Kai-shek’s Republic of China retreated to Taiwan after their defeat by Mao Zedong’s Communists.

Maybe the Taiwanese should offer to return the treasures to Xi in return for him allowing Taiwan to declare its independence?

It’s a win, win for both sides. The treasures really belongs to the Forbidden City and Taiwan deserves to be a de jure independent liberal democratic (sort of because they use physical violence in parliament, not juz verbal violence) nation, giving the finger to our dearly departed Harry’s self serving comment that Chinese don’t do democracy.
