Those Heady 1980s

If the hype lives up to the news, Taiwan is going to be in for some excitement over the next couple of years. President Chen Shui Bian is being targetted by street demonstrations calling for him to tone it down.

The stories in the BBC seem to be describing a Taiwan moving back towards those days in the 1980s when students and trade unions led pushes for democratization in Taiwan.

In other, unrelated news, the current issue of Foreign Affairs has quite a few good articles. I've been reading it all day today, and my brain is a bit washed out as a result.
