internet newspaper
(photo is Taiwan ROC president Tsai I. W.)


Zola Zu's 'parody' article in 2017 invoked dystopian novel "1984", best-known advertisement "1984", and best-known slogan "Think Different" (should be "think differently", adv. not adj.) to question Taiwan president and to tentatively test if  the state apparatus etc has  harmed people's freedom and human rights... 

   Eventually, Taiwan's intelligence systems "proved" my views above are about correct !!  'Freedom' is a hot topic now !
 <United Daily (聯合報)> 11-2-2018, headline news : Taiwan's National Security Bureau confirmed their investigations of Facebook communities and others on the net, for monitoring, controlling and collecting "controversial information" including those "influence national security", "blacken ("詆譭", a term of Martial Law period / UDN, 11-3-2018) president", "disrupt social stability"
, "distort policy" and "disturb national mechanism", "fight governmental prestige", "influence public mind and morale";   UDN 11-3-2018: Facebook and all other internet platform service providers in Taiwan were requested to hand in all users' personal information and data. (President declared her opposition about this )
