    Despite intermarriage w/indigenous population, TW is over 98% Han Chinese and adheres to the same culture/customs as the mainland, particularly Confucianism (filial piety, ancestral worship, social harmony, etc). Majority of population desires peace, safety, social stability, and economic prosperity. If China can provide that over western style 'democracy,' theyre all for it.
