In Reply to What is Colonizing Us?

I quite agree with EK on how Japan's culture is colonizing us. Behind Hello Kitty, Japanese Soap Opera, scooter, dressing style and the like, there is something significant we need to think about. Their culture under the mask of those commodities is changing people's thoughts, standard of judgement and even the recognition of identity. But the point is that we are Taiwanese. Although I don't mean that we should resist the various colonizations, we ought to retain what we originally have on this land in terms of culture, custom, living style. I hope we can be proud of being familiar with our own culture instead of with the trends in Japan, U.S.A , and Europe.
