Small Things Matter

Prof 李筱峰 wrote an interesting article on the culture issue.  I think it’s really worth a read.  Sometimes people underestimate the role of culture in the fate of a country.  Culture is the unspoken rules of society that could help but also constrain a country in a lot of ways.

A lot of things in cultural discussion are small things (雞毛蒜皮), but very often they are reflection of things that can have huge impact (if one read the book “The Chrysanthemum and the Sword” they will know what I mean).  Therefore, it is important to note that a lot of officials are still behind the general public in terms of history understanding and the concept of Taiwan.
