Japan is the most rapidly aging society in the world.

The declining fertility rate is a severe issue especially among developed countries, including the United States.

Political Parties, Authoritarianism, and Democracy: The 228 Incident of Taiwan
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Though a vibrant and thriving democracy today, Taiwan (the Republic of China) was once a nation plagued with corruption, mass violence, and totalitarian rule. In Taiwan, the period immediately following the 228 Incident is known as the “White Terror” for the massive suppression, murder, and imprisonment of political dissidents, or anyone who the Kuomintang (KMT), or the Nationalist Party, perceived as a threat to its one-party rule.The 228 Incident is still remembered today in Taiwan through various means, from annual memorial ceremonies to the National 228 Memorial Museum. To understand what has happened and to appreciate Taiwan’s path toward democracy, it is necessary to know the history of the 228 Incident and the ensuing decades of Martial Law. It also serves as an instrumental lesson for understanding the interplay between political parties and authoritarian practices in democracy.
