On that day and over the following month, the Taiwanese socio-political intellectual elite rose up to reject their motherland, China, to which they had just loyally returned as a long-lost filially pious son after fifty years of colonial rule by the Japanese, and rebelled against the Nationalist government which they had just as warmly welcomed back as their “middle kingdom” in 1945.
