Dialogue Between Blue & Green


Taiwan's democracy is the envy of Chinese people all over the world. At the same time, when this two-party system- "blue"(Kuomingtang) and "green"(Democratic Progressive Party)- get at each other's throats, it seems to cast a dark cloud over this beacon of advancing democratization. How does the young generation, many of them first time voters, feel about the political environment they've inherited? Will they allow for their political differences to drive a deeper wedge into the Taiwanese society?

Through these dialogues, those who belonged to a certain party line began to doubt their decisions; those who were apathetic experienced a political awakening and embraced voting as their civic duty; those who thought they were standing on the side of justice realized they've been preaching to the choir; or those who have been paying lip service finally decided to act for the cause they believed in. In addition to this group of young people, we've also arranged for representatives from both parties, as well as exchange students from Hong Kong and China to join this debate on Taiwan's unique democratic environment. How do the varying views contribute to the blue and green young people of Taiwan? We hope this experimental dialogue not only opens up for cross-aisle understanding, but also promotes a reflection on what it means to be blue or green and the value behind casting that one vote.
