前衛生署長楊志良教授蒞蘭陽校園演講:「挑戰台灣不可能的未來」。

CHI YEN CHU

On the afternoon of May 10, Dr. Yang Chih-liang, the former Minister for Health of the Republic of China (Taiwan), came to the TKU Lanyang Campus to deliver a lecture. Held at the Clement C.P. Chang International Conference Hall, the lecture explored the topic "Taiwan's collapse: "Challenging Taiwan's Impossible Future".

During his tenure as health minister, Yang criticized the direction of social development, which he claimed led to "no marriage, no children, no growth, no life, and no future". He believes a society that single-mindedly pursues economic objectives inevitably ends up damaging the environment and the ecology, and hindering social justice. During the speech, he referred to examples of development in the West, which he says involves objectives for the environment, one's personal health and mental health, and not simply the economy.

Yang also suggested a number of social reforms, such as more efficient social governance, equitable raising of taxes, reasonable price increases, more extensive care of the underprivileged, and a better social welfare system.

He called on the students to help in taking on the "impossible challenge" of transforming the "five no" slogan into the following, life-sustaining slogan: "willingness to marry, joy in birth, peace of mind, happiness in living, and a bright future!"
