當哆啦A夢不在,台灣能面對胖虎嗎? It's the people, stupid; the crust of the "Most Dangerous Place (MDP)" question.
Play • 41 min

Although TUX guests approach the question of the "Most Dangerous Place (MDP)" through different dimensions, everyone is driving toward the same point, i.e. the lack of social consensus as a backbone for Taiwan's military capabilities. Looking beyond the usual competing interests seen in many democracies, Taiwan society has the burden of a series of unresolved historic trauma over the last 150 years to contend with. Unless Taiwan citizenry get involved, these conundrums are likely to persist.

From an ex-Arms Dealer's perspective (https://www.facebook.com/104660934796584/posts/253359836593359/?d=n): while appropriate level of expenditures for hardware is table stake to be in the game, it is the people who operate the hardware that are even more important.

From a geopolitical researcher (https://www.facebook.com/104660934796584/posts/257653622830647/?d=n): geopolitics cannot be considered in isolation. The instigation and ultimate resolution of any conflict rest on the support of the society; no citizenry can shirk this responsibility.

From a conscript (https://www.facebook.com/104660934796584/posts/262259439036732/?d=n): we were happy to add some levity to this MDP conversation. Levity notwithstanding, it is actually impressive that some people are actively deciding to serve in the Taiwan military.

From a military analyst (https://www.facebook.com/104660934796584/posts/266751651920844/?d=n): does Taiwan have the collective will to stand up for itself? Whatever the preferred political outcome one may hold, the rational thing is to have sufficient military capabilities to engage in geopolitical conversation.
