Essence of the Ritual Assembly
--- The Heavenly Duty of People in Taiwan
--- By Yang Hsu-Tung (Nov. 25, 1999)
With its four hundred years of immigration history, Taiwan has now built up an independent, prosperity, democratic and liberal polity on this island called Formosa. This achievement has not been gained easily, nor can it be ignored or betrayed.
Taiwan is, without a doubt, a member of the global village as well as a nation with an open, global viewpoint. It is not a province of China, and should never be sacrificed in the process of unification. Taiwan makes possible the future of all Chinese, and under their expectation, Taiwan will lead the democratization of the ˇ§Red China.ˇ¨
The purpose of this Ritual Assembly is to resolve Taiwanˇ¦s domestic crisis and to pray for the realization of the heavenly duty --- ˇ§Taiwanese loves each other, and Taiwanese brings hope to all Chinese.ˇ¨ With ˇ§New-Taiwaneseˇ¨ peopleˇ¦s philosophy of Political Utopia, we hope to speed up the democratization of mainland China. It is the key to a peaceful unification between Taiwan and China in the future, as mandated by Heaven.
Dr. Yang Hsu-Tung.
