Paul Yu Pin talks about education at his university. One aspiration in Formosa: to return to the mainland of China.

Questions: Problems of sending food to government of China? Chances of return to the mainland in the next 10 years? Nuclear war threatened if US helps with an invasion of mainland China? Stopping progress in China will end the danger of nuclear war with them. Schism between Soviet Union and China? Status of Buddhism and journalism in Taiwan?
