This article is specific for the problem between Taiwan and Mainland China which has exited for a long time. For searching a better observation about the relationship between Taiwan and Mainland, we use the comparative history view. Therefore, based on various observations, we find that the confliction between Ching dynasty and Zheng can provide the best resource.
The structure of this discourse is that we try to find out the relative historic experience from the history fact of Taiwan and Mainland China in 17th century. And according to this experience, we compare the difference of the present and past. Then we can get new point of view. The final goal is to find out the sticking point between Taiwan and Mainland China.
There are three different views of observations in Ching Dynasty and Zheng period.
First, the international condition at that moment and how much the international power get involved in both sides
Second, the content of Qing and Ming-Zheng’s contract and the peace issue, also the change from positive role to passive.
Finally, it’s the power change of both sides, especially Ming-Zheng. We will discuss the decline of Ming-Zheng which is because of its inner confliction and disorder.
Above the three points, we can get some conclusions.
First, in certain area, control the leading role.
Second, in negotiation, make most use of its advantage to get the most benefit.
Third, consolidate is benefit, otherwise, separate is harmful.
