Photo of dictator Chiang Kai-shek and his Chiang Kai-shek Temple (Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall). 中正廟 (中正紀念堂) 相片集。
The photos should strictly present in the above order.
Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall – What we called “CKS Temple” (中正廟) is another example of how dictator leeched Taiwanese people during the period that nationalist party Kuomintang (KMT) has no distinction between party and state. During the period of Dang Guo in 70s and 80s, the nationalist government designed and built the temple at the heart of Taipei – similar to what they have done at Sun Moon Lake Ci’en Pagoda – creating a space to venerate the dictator in a prime location.
The most notable evidence of the lack of distinction between Dang Guo is seen in the party emblem of the Kuomintang (KMT) and the national emblem of Taiwan. The only difference between the KMT party emblem and the Taiwan national emblem is the scale of the 12 light rays.
The Kuomintang’s refusal to replace their party emblem once again demonstrates that, even in the 21st century, they still do not distinguish between the party and the state.
The photo titled “黨國不分 – No Distinction Between Dang Guo (Party-State)” conveys the concept of “no distinction between Dang Guo.” The emblem at the top of the CKS temple clearly combines the national emblem of Taiwan with the party emblem of the Kuomintang.
