A very good example of how the American propaganda industry worked. It is interesting to see how the U.S. public was told that they were helping the poor Formosans, when in truth the implanted government did very little and told the Formosans that they were doing it and not the Americans. Land reform for example was good and did help some, until the Chinese did the 228 Incident and a large amount of the reformed land went to Chinese soldiers. The régime put into place on Formosa was almost as bad as the régime that was in Mainland China, and the U.S. propaganda machine white washed it with documentaries like this.
