Depends on who you talk to.
The political party in Taiwan, (KMT) lost the civil war in China and fled to Taiwan around the time WW2 ended.

So Taiwan have been self ruling for a pretty long time and their cultures are vastly different. Personally, I feel that the culture in Taiwan is closer to Japan than China.

Taiwan is known as the Republic of China
China as The People's Republic of China

Taiwan is not recognised by China as a solitair state.
Only 21 countries of the United Nations does.

Working conditions are as bad as they are in China, they don't pay taxes and the profit goes to China.

This is utterly disturbing. Consumerism is the driving force! We buy he crap we don't need for temporarily satisfaction. Sooner than later we pollute the planet. If we all take the minimalist avenue, the demand of goods will drop. On this note, overpopulation is the root cause on cheap labor. China is the prime example.

Automation is next big wave in production factories. What will happen when robots take over manual labor performed by humans?

I'm a firm believer that you can enjoy cycling as a minimalist. This sport has been around for ~ 130 years with simplicity.


Absolutely.
