He's right that the official position of Taiwan is still "One China," even if there are some who have flirted with the idea of Two China's/One China, One Taiwan.

Taiwa's "One China" is different than mainland China's "One China".

China's want to rule Taiwan. Taiwan wants to rule mainland China.

The ROC of China also claims Mongolia.

I think it's fair to say barring catastrophic collapse the ROC will never rule over China. Most politicians in Taiwan don't even consider it. The most they can hope for is being granted full independence.

CCP has been completely whitewashing their invasion of Tibet, East Turkistan, Vietnam, Korea, India, Chairman Mao's atrocities during the Cultural revolution and starvation of millions of people during the Great Leap Forward, the massacre of students in Tinanenmen, its support of North Korea's dictatorship etc. Where are the protests against the Chinese government for not teaching about how bad Mao Ze Dong really was? There are none, why? Because the government brainwashed people with their stupid manditory "political" classes in school. And even if there were, the government would brutally repress them. In truly civilized countries, media is free and protected under the constitution, and people are actually encouraged to put their own views and theories forward. Under the CCP its government controlled and used only to promote propaganda.

At the very least the attitude towards Mao and his legacy is becoming more ambiguous. The years after Mao saw a series of 'denouncements' as the CCP tried to distance themselves ideologically from their Chairman and founder. Of course it wasn't complete, the vestiges of Maoist policies remain today, but the CCP wanted to 'wash their hands' of the past actions of their leader which are undeniably atrocious. There still is a focus on the good things he did and a grateful acknowledgement that he did 'build up' modern China, but many are not blind to his faults. China is pretty heavy handed, though, Tiananmen was 23 years ago but I wouldn't be surprised if we saw something similar today. It's still a pretty repressive regime.

Which "Chinese" culture do you mean? The Chinese culture in Southeast Asia, the post-Cultural revolution China Chinese culture, or the North American Chinese culture?

I think the SEA Chinese culture is cool. Mainland Chinese culture. Not so.

Southeast Asia Chinese still keeps a lot of festivals that the mainlanders have forsaken. It is easier for a Philippine Chinese to relate to an Indonesian Chinese than to a mainland Chinese.

The wisdom of the ancient Chinese is more seen in Southeast Asian Chinese than the mainland Chinese
