Hello everyone
Welcome to Taiwan Bar
Today we're going to talk about selling out Taiwan
Which um
Everyone seems to think is a new thing
Goto Shinpei thought Taiwanese people were nothing but a bunch of
To Taiwanese people nowadays, this description is
Yeah, it's pretty on point
Who is this Goto Shinpei?
That's Kudō Shin-ichi
Their names don't even sound alike!
As an intro for Goto Shinpei
Let's start our story with
The Taiwanese were so close
from bonjouring each other like the French
The Taiwanese were so close

from bonjouring each other like the French
Because
To understand the importance of this
Selling Taiwan incident with Mr. Goto Shinpei
Let's start from how the Japanese Rule in Taiwan started
In 1895
Japan took over Taiwan according to the Treaty of Shimonoseki
But couldn't handle Taiwan's crimes
All the armed resistances
gave the first few governor-generals a big headache
During the first three years of the Japanese Rule
governor-generals changed back to back to back
Even when the fourth governor-general came to office
He could still hear them blaka blaka blakas
Like Chinese New Year
In fact, apart from the resistance
The Japanese also got the heebie-jeebies from
Taiwan was hot and wet and filled with cutie little diseases
Just to give you an idea
When Japanese troops were busy invading the south in 1895
160 people were killed in action
More than 500 people were wounded
But those who died from diseases were up to
You can tell by the numbers how serious the epidemics were
On top of the casualties
Expenditures were also a big problem
For example, in 1896
Taiwan's public finance-revenue was less than
But the expenditures were up to
How are you supposed to make ends meet
when you're spending three times what you make?
Let's clarify something real quick
あの
The Japanese people that came to Taiwan at that time
May be a little different
from the clean and polite people we know them to be
Because of the hot weather
Some Japanese folks stripped down and strolled around
Making Taiwanese people feel
Not to mention
Corruption
Robbery
Messed up po-po's
Let's just say Taiwanese people didn't have a
very high opinion of the Japanese back then
Making it even worse to be colonized by them
As for the Japanese who were sent there
They felt like soldiers being sent to the Spratly Islands
Taiwan didn't have any decent schools, hospitals or houses
But it DID have a bunch of diseases
It was like being in exile
In fact it was
People dying
Money spending
Both made Mr. Nogi Maresuke
When people back in Japan started throwing shade at Taiwan
The National Diet wanted to sell Taiwan
for a meager 100 million yen to France
A debate we call
If Taiwan was actually sold to France
We could've ended up eating croissants for breakfast
And building Eiffel 101's in Taipei
Just when Taiwan was about to go full bonjour
Even though Taiwan is a hard little nut to crack
If we do
In the end, the Diet decided to give the government one last chance
And Kodama took his right hand man to Taiwan
But at that time, Kodama was also
So most of the time he wasn't even in Taiwan
And the hard work just became Goto Shinpei's job
Goto believed that Taiwan must be ruled by
For example
Flatfish have their eyes on the same side
But sea breams have their eyes on opposite sides
How could you force a flatfish to grow its eyes on both sides?
So let Japanese be Japanese, and Taiwanese be Taiwanese
There's no need to impose Japan's rules on Taiwan
Like when you date someone
You also need to get to know them first
Goto decided to take understand the habits of the Taiwanese population
before creating corresponding policies
First of all
He started with a bunch of investigations
Land
Demographics
Forestry
and old habits to understand Taiwan
Well...you know
Goto observed how marriage and ownership worked in Taiwan
as a reference for legislative and judicial systems
blending in like a chameleon on a rainbow
Now we can finally tell you guys
how Goto Shinpei solved the two major problems
to prevent Taiwan from being sold
First off, the money problem
Thanks to the land investigations
Goto bumped the land rent revenue from
to a whopping
A threefold growing spurt
On the other hand
The Monopoly Bureau was also a huge driving force
towards Taiwan's financial autonomy
The monopoly system meant that
only the government could sell certain things
and it brought in an average annual income of
mainly from selling
Especially from opium
Opium got the whole team on his back,
LeBron James
Filling up the scoreboard
Carrying half the sales
By the way
At that time, opium addiction
was a deeeeep-rooted social problem in Taiwan
But to the government
The business was just easy money
Anyway
Goto Shinpei finally made Taiwan economically self-sufficient
What about the public safety problem?
Goto sent a kajillion cops
Like, a lot of cops
Like, an ant army of cops
along with community-based watch systems
and local militia to protect the world from devastation
But Taiwan paid a high price for this so-called “peace”
Taiwanese people lived under police surveillance
Common folks had to call the police “Sir”
Parents threatened their kids by saying
“The cops are coming!”
And just by seeing the police
Everyone wet their pants
Later on, Goto proclaimed the Bandit Punishment Ordinance
giving the police even greater power
More than 5900 people were arrested
and more than 3200 of them were executed
You can probably guess that Taiwanese people were
pretty well behaved after that
Now, you probably understand a little bit more about how Kudo
How Goto Shinpei prevented Taiwan from being sold to France
To sell or not to sell
Japan weighed its options rationally from a colonial perspective
but also with a romantic touch
to prove itself to Western countries
Anyhow
When we look back at specific parts of history
Avoiding emotional judgments is really important
for us to get closer to the truth
If Taiwan was actually sold to France
What would our lives be like now?
If you still think that's an easy question to answer...
Well, we just wasted 7 minutes!
Okay
After all that talking, I'm a bit thirsty
Let me drink this sake
And we'll see you next time
Bye!
