Crying out for humanitarianism

By Michelle Wang 王美琇

Is Taiwan a civilized country or is it a country ruled by the law of the jungle? What does civilization even mean?

Some say the most fundamental standard for judging a civilization is how it treats its weak and disadvantaged. Aren’t we now mistreating a sick and weak former president?

Confused, angry and dejected, I continued down the streets of Taipei, scorching in the summer heat.
