Transcript of "Mo, kuo chen's social anthropology essay description-20100202"

  1. 1. BAS 2010 Social Anthropology Description 2010-02-02 Redefine the Value of Veterans’ Cultural Potential in the Nowadays Society Mo, Kuo-Chen Key Words: Veterans / Cultural Potential / Social Resources / Social Values / Estate / Active policies / Social Welfare / Self-confidence Background: The ROC Government relocated to Taiwan after the Chinese Civil War in 1949; meanwhile, many soldiers who came from different provinces of Mainland China followed the military to stay in Taiwan. We often use “Veterans” as a narrow sense to represent these soldiers nowadays. These veterans were forced to participate in the war while their teenager period, and therefore had few choices to study or learning for themselves even couldn’t make plans for their own life. In a word, they spent their golden age of life for the Government they believed. Some of these veterans held the last chance switched to another line of business under the Government counsel after the Government releasing theme. On the other hand, part of them became the lower level of class in the society till now. Of course the Government continues taking care of them in some social welfare policies; nevertheless, most of them still have less respect to live in nowadays society in Taiwan. Culture: Veterans have diverse culture from their different background. For example, their dialect, traditional foods, and folk custom…etc. Most of them know the Chinese culture much more than general people who live in Taiwan, like Tang poetry, calligraphy, Chinese traditional painting, Chinese traditional opera, and Chinese comic dialogue…etc. They have so many precious cultural treasury, but without be treated with respect by most people. We are now getting loss for these arts after they pass away by one after another. Presentation / Popularization / Preservation: Veterans now disperse in different places or areas, besides, there is no any place especially for them meeting, collecting or presenting themselves in Taiwan. They would rather actively obtain their self-confidence than depending on the Government’s passive welfare policies. Mo, Kuo-Chen Mobile: +47-45677218 Email: kuochen.mo@gmail.com
