My name is Adam Hatch and I've been a contributor to Taipei Trends since 2013. I like to focus on local history, culture, and social trends along with the occasional political analysis. I'm currently a graduate student at NCCU in Asia-Pacific studies and hold a degree in geography from UC Berkeley. I've been just another English teacher in Taipei for five years and my Chinese is still embarrassing. I enjoy reading, traveling around Taiwan, and being a smart-ass.

我之前寫過我愛台北有很多令人訝異的歷史。台北縣市居民都一定傍晚去過淡水河堤。這裏有市場,餐廳跟美麗的風景。稍微比較沒人知道的是聖多明哥城(紅毛城)。

Two Sides to the Story, Whether We Like it or Not
By Adam Hatch | Published 2015/04/14

We all love those stories with a clear-cut bad guy. I mean, who doesn’t love to hate a villain like Voldemort of Harry Potter fame? However, the problem with this kind of narrative is that it’s rarely how the world actually works, especially when it comes to large-scale geopolitical issues. This includes the perennial debate over Taiwan’s status relative to China. However, The Diplomat contributor J. Michael Cole seems to have made a career of framing this profoundly complicated question as “good guy vs. bad guy” and does so again in his recent article – “The Great Chinese Lie About Taiwan.”
