AbstractNative commentators on Taiwan's recent industrialization consider culture a key factor of the nation's modernization drive. Indigenous writers present Chinese culture as not only economically fit, but also morally superior. Such presentations, I argue, have unspoken ideological goals. Legitimation of the government, paternalistic claims on citizens and workers by the state and employers, and the rhetorical war against communism are some of the tacit agendas I discuss.
