The Pragmatist Of Taichung

"If annexing Taiwan to China would solve that problem [PRC expansionism - ed], then it might be a permissable solution."
That came from the keyboard of Michael Turton.

Update... last night a little bird told me, from personal communication interestingly enough, that Turton's grandfather may have either worked with, or had something to do with (drum roll)... John Dewey, the third man of American Pragmatism after William James and C.S. Pierce.
