Chen Shuibian: Control your Wife

“Not even an execution can atone for my sins,” former Taiwanese president Chen Shuibian writes in his latest book, Voices that Can’t Be Locked Up (關不住的聲音).

He made eight mistakes during his presidency, writes Chen. From them, we learn this:

1. Control your wife.

2. Your enemies are never merciful to you. If you are benevolent to your enemy, you are cruel to yourself.

3. Be evil enough to claim your enemy’s stolen assets.

4. Being an exceptionally wise leader, don’t leave your succession to others.

5. Distrust your successor as party leader. Examine her bones. Especially if she happens to be a woman. Go back to rule one.
