開創台灣的前途

◎ 楊劉秀華

有關世界衛生組織(WHO)內部密件對台灣稱謂不當一事,國內對WHO矮化台灣,將台灣定位為「中國一省」,最近鬧得沸沸揚揚,馬英九親上第一線,率同外交部長楊進添、衛生署長邱文達、新聞局長楊永明等官員,在總統府親自召開記者會,表達嚴正抗議,並在許多友邦協助下向WHO提出抗議。

我想起一個故事。在一家庭中,有一個小孩,他天性撒謊又喜歡偷東西,無論家人如何教導他,他那撒謊及偷東西的本性都不能改正。有一天,他把家裡的房屋所有權狀偷偷拿走,去送給別人。不久,家裡的人發現房屋所有權狀不見了,並為此事大吵大鬧,要小孩去抗議並取回房屋所有權狀。您想,這可能嗎?

這時候,全家的人應冷靜下來,同心合一、有智慧想辦法去取回房屋所有權狀才對。家裡的人不要再愚笨下去,一直盼望且吩咐小孩自己去解決、抗議取回房屋所有權狀。當然撒謊成性的小孩一定會說願意去,但是家裡的人能相信他嗎?一直罵小孩,盼望他自己去解決,就能取回房屋所有權狀嗎?

有智慧的台灣人,應趕快醒過來,大家一起商量如何用最智慧的方法去取回所有權狀才對。不要再指責白賊七的小孩,因為那是一件不可能的事。若自己不去做,只逼白賊七的小孩去解決,有一天,連自己所住的房子都沒有了,那要怎麼辦?

台灣人要學會聰明,不要一直笨下去,如今在WHO,「中華民國」護照都不被承認了,爾後,當全世界都認為台灣是中國的一部分的時候,那台灣人只有跳海一途了。

Create Taiwan’s future

On the issue of the WHO addressing Taiwan improperly in their internal confidential document, the WHO’s dwarfing of Taiwan by categorizing Taiwan as a “province of China” created great hubbub in Taiwan.

President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九), accompanied by Minister of Foreign Affairs Timothy Yang (楊進添), Department of Health Minister Chiu Wen-ta (邱文達), Government Information Office Minister Philip Yang (楊永明) and other officials, held a press conference at the Presidential Office to express their solemn protests. With the assistance of many allies, they also protested to the WHO.

This reminds me of a story about a boy who was born with a nature to lie and steal. No matter how hard his family taught him, he could not correct his habit of lying and stealing. One day, he stole the deed to his family’s house and gave away the title to someone else. Later, his family found out the status of their home and asked the boy to protest and get back the ownership of the house. Do you think this was possible?

At this time, the whole family should calm down, unite as one and find out wise ways to get back their home, not be so stupid to wait for the boy to solve their dilemma. Of course, this lying boy will want to help, but can the family trust him now? Can you get back the deed to the home by just blaming the boy and hope he will solve the problem himself?

All intelligent Taiwanese should have woken up by now. Let’s all get together to discuss the most intelligent way to get back the deed to our home. Do not keep blaming this “liar” because you are asking for something impossible. If you continue to force liars to solve the problem instead of working on the issue yourself, you will eventually find yourself at a loss and without an abode.

Taiwanese need to learn to be smart now. The WHO does not even recognize Republic of China passports. If the whole world recognizes that Taiwan is part of China, Taiwanese might as well jump into the ocean.
