And this is, yet, ANOTHER case of how we all got, SCREWED OVER by the ideologies of the party that’s leading this country of “ours” (oh wait, this AIN’T my country!!!)…off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
2021 was a totally, thrilling, year for us all. As Taiwan is boasting itself on being the head of the class in preventing the epidemic from hitting us all too hard, suddenly, we’d, shifted gears into stage three alert, and, there was, this, huge lacking in the availability of vaccines to the people, those in power manipulating the situations then, we the people, started, dashing all around, fighting for the limited resources available to us all, fighting to get the residual doses from the clinics all around. In a year’s time, there are, close to, two thousand in the total population who’d, died by contraction, or by vaccinations, plus the Taroko Train derailing, the city-within-a-city fire of Kaohsiung, the drought, power outages, violence that occurred locally, drunk-driving; you can say, that Taiwan had been, living under, the glooms of, death.
But gladly, a group of Olympic competitors put on a show of “Miracles of the Summertime”, we’d thought it would be the most beautiful firework that marked down last year but, at the end, the political realms, the showbiz all had the show of, “how to breed a loser” suddenly, shifting our focuses away from the four main issues that are up for public voting, and the people ignored the problems that will be, what we will, come into, direct contact with.
The plague had, altered our means of life, and the modes of economic. At the year-end gathering, my friend who owns a breakfast shop poured it all out: there’s the continuing hike in prices of the raw produces, we’d, cut our earnings; the neighbors who’d sold off the Sandong style duck head bitterly smiled, “the prices of the raw produces is on a continuing hike upwards, only the cost of salt stays the exact same. The stock markets skyrocketed, with an extreme, side effect! Every country became, deadlocked in inflation, a bowl of instant noodles here went from thirty-five to forty, and the ordinary citizens’ wallets, shrunk by more than ten-percent, let’s not go into depth about the cost of housing then!
My father died last year, left behind a small chunk of land, the prices rose up, at the same rate as the housing costs, I was originally, guaranteed to make a killing, but, the drought and the outbreaks hit, and I’d, understood, that money can’t bring the dead back to life, nor can the money, make it rain, my mother clearly stated to me that even if the land was sold off, she shall, continue to sell the vegetables, she will, NEVER retire! Money should be spent, on those who need it, and so, I’d, talked my older sister, and my mother, to donate it all away. People called me foolish, my mother thought of Mrs. Chen, that at least, we all have roof over our heads, a steady place of residence, and vegetables we can sell to make our living.
Taiwan hadn’t been beaten down by the outbreaks, but we were under the attacks of the messed up values, drug abuse, sexual assaults, hacking, random murders, murdering the parents, child abuse, it’d been on the news, almost, every day; the political parties are against each other, constantly fighting, like a pair of parents disagreeing constantly, always asking the child to choose sides, never, considered how the kid feels, what the child actually needs from them, or, how to make it better for our own, next generations; how can the people, living under this kind of socialization, constantly being bombarded by these values, learn, to live in harmony with one another, and love each other?
Those with money enjoyed solving the problems with it, but, no amount of money can bring back those who’d been hit and killed by the drunk drivers, those who’d died in fires, the train derailing……………all of these, precious lives are gone, too fast. In this brand new year, I hope, that the parties won’t just make it look good on the surfaces, but, really DO something, to tackle the problems we have in our society, to rebuild that sense of value, so we don’t need to play “the Squid Games” all over again!
And so, this, is a call out to this government, because it got too set on gaining power, that those who are the heads of state, Su, the president, Tsai, and all of those, other, members of the DDP, stopped focusing on the needs of we the people, the government delayed the vaccines, causing, too many to die, and now, they’d, extended the time frame of the second and third doses to six months from before, and now, they’re only, starting to, THINK, that hey, maybe we need to, give those who hadn’t had an mRNA shop a third vaccination in three months, well, guess what, by the time all of these standard-operating-procedures get set up and working fully and functionally, yeah, that’ll, wipe out about……I’m thinking, a-THIRD of the entire population, and, unfortunately, this, “estimated a third of the entire population”, won’t be the DDP followers.
And, all of these had happened because??? We the people (oh wait, I’m still NOT a part of that, “collective we”!) had, voted, a DICTATOR into office, and, there’s NOTHING we the people CAN do about it…
