Taiwan is now the last bastion of democracy in China. We seem to have failed Tibet and now Hong Kong. If we don’t stand here, what comes after Hong Kong, Taiwan?

About Hiram

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories
