1) My narrow purpose in creating this blog is to undermine the editorial line of the Taipei Times.

2) My broader aim is to erode the psychological, structural and cultural supports to collectivism of all stripes in Taiwan.

3) I will pursue two methods - destructive criticism and constructive conjecture.

4) Although English is obviously not the first language of the Taiwanese, it is the language in which the Taipei Times is written and it is therefore the language I shall use. I shall not make any promises about simplifying my language for the benefit of learners, though I am happy to take the time to explain and answer questions.

5) I will allow comments, although I may not always have the time to deal with them.

6) I will not post according to any particular schedule - it will be entirely as and when I feel up to it.
