President Ma running democratic dictatorship

By Hsu Yung-ming

This is the source of “democratic dictatorship.” Democracy has degenerated into a means to obtain power and the “dictatorship” is expressed in the rush the government gets from its arbitrary use of power.

This is what has become of Taiwan’s democracy. A lot of work is needed to put things back on track.

Hsu Yung-ming is an associate professor of political science at Soochow University.
