He was talking about land only going to the Chinese who moved with the KMT

That's not true at all. There are a lot BSR land owners in Taiwan still.

Well, a lot of WSR got lands and sold them quickly to make a buck, and moved on.

Not to speak about the fact that many people lost a lot of money with the change from Taiwan Dollar to NTD, being that the inflationary prices were mainly cause by KMT corruption, hoarding and so on.

Most economist blame the Chinese Civil War that resumed in 1945 as the main reason for inflation of the Old Taiwan Dollar, and any other currency backed by the ROC. The conversion to NTD was just a foreshadowing clue to the eventual lost of the mainland as the reserves where moved to Taiwan during the retreat.

Would you be happy if Taiwan remained in the Taiwan Yen system implemented by Japan?

Answer:
BSR = 本省人
WSR = 外省人

For example. Tibetans in Taiwan are 外省人. The Tibetan Flag is a 外省 Flag.
As a counter example. AC_dropout is a 本省人. His views represents the typical blue leaning moderate 本省人.

Mr_boogie claims that WSR, like Tibetans for example, own most of private land in Taiwan. When he knows full well the vast majority of property owners in Taiwan are BSR and their descendents, like AC_Dropout.

Any other provinces have their own flag? BTW, even the PRC does not officially regard Tibet as a "province."
I have a dream, a dream where a democratic China lives side by side with Taiwan, Tibet, and Turkestan, all free and democratic.

Taiwan province and Fujian province have their own flag. With a beautiful KMT symbol in it.

BTW, even the PRC does not officially regard Tibet as a "province."

When did we start caring about how the PRC administer the Mainland. Pull out an official ROC map and lo and behold Tibet province. With about 36 other provinces that WSR are suppose to have been from before being invited to Taiwan province.

Next you'll be telling me Hong Kong is not "fragrant" at all.

AC, as I said, most WSR sold the land they got to BSR and moved on to other business. It is normal for the BSR to be the biggest landowners here, as they are, probably, capable of doing a better job on them than the BSR. As we all know, the farmers stayed back in China backing the communists, and only the elites came to Taiwan.
