Recently, I read the erroneous report of Tainan Mayor Huang Weizhe's so-called "grabbing the rake", and his inner thoughts were very complicated; a voice wanted to ask the whistleblowers and opponents: Do you really understand the meaning of promoting this movement? Why do you ask this, because some people are too optimistic and think that all problems will be solved naturally; some are too contrived and take the means as an end and thus fall into the trap of another power, knowing that they were once victims of the system, but based on egoism Or political calculations, forcibly labelling the competitors of a democratic society as fellow travelers of the party and the state.
The worst thing is that some people try to level the boundary between right and wrong and good and evil, and cause the relationship between the "perpetrator" and the "victim" to be confused. In addition to absolving themselves, they even want to carry out political restoration. , bent on returning to "the good old days". There are also some nihilists who have never experienced the days of authoritarian martial law and have no concept of the evil nature of the party-state system. For them, the so-called de-charm or the pursuit of historical truth sometimes seems Shadow Making like some kind of postmodern In games, the words "decentralization" and "structure" in their mouths sound very fashionable, but they don't know what to approve or disapprove.
Every day I enjoy checking the gap between other people's ideals and reality, but I have no action. The perpetrators at that time are still emerging in a new form in Taiwan today In all fairness, there are several key factors behind the smooth implementation of transitional justice in Germany, South Africa, and the former Soviet Union countries. If you ignore these differences in political and economic backgrounds, you will commit the fallacy of "tangerine surpassing Huaihuai". Only by thinking from the structural side and from the outside can we overcome the problems and confusion of promoting transitional justice in Taiwan. The first problem is that the perpetrators at that time are now appearing in various new forms.
