Erosion of law, democracy and freedom Beijing style

For some thought-provoking comment on how the Ma regime seems to be rolling back democracy in Taiwan and slowly importing draconian-type legal concepts from across the Taiwan Strait see today's Taipei Times EDITORIAL: A very dangerous import from China. The handling of the Central Taiwan Science Park expansion comes to mind. Also, a letter by Julia Tong on the current struggle between Premier Wu Den-yih and the courts makes some very valid points on the current refusal of the Premier to respect the authority of the courts. See Wu let the dogs out?
