This chapter attempts to look back at the emergence of the new Taiwanese identity under democracy in a different way: as a logical, and even necessary, consequence of democratic practice and socialization. The chapter first reviews the reality of the rise of Taiwanese national identity through analysis of opinion polls numbers about two relevant series of questions on self-identification and preference for political status of Taiwan. It then discusses the issue of genetic links, and the complementarity or dependence, between democracy and nationalism. Finally, it assesses whether the natio-genesis nature of democratic dynamics may be illustrated through the political expression of people educated under democracy, the young generations.
