Dennis, the *tone* of your language is so unproductive that I don't even
find worth responding. A lot of personal affronts and jealousy. Be
respectful. I wonder on which lists you learn such habits: being on people's
nerves and objecting for the sake of objecting. As regards to Henry, he sent
a whole page to the list explaining the historical background of the issue.
Deal with those facts. If not, withdraw to comment as some of us do, since
you don't seem to be doing a field research in Taiwan either. Wasn't your
Phd about Adorno?

with regards to national liberation, since we are on a Marxism list not in
some cultural studies forum, you should know by now that Marxist support for
nationalism is not unconditional. Otherwise, we would all support the
secessionist demands in Yugo. Mac already replied so I have little to add. I
don't also know the specifics of Taiwan's history. I learn by listening to
others. You should do the same, post-modernist comrade!

bye, Mine
