Abstract: In recent years there have been three factors that make it possible for Taiwan to be a “society full of hate”. These include the interests of differentiation and the relative deprivation of interests among some social groups due to the social changes in Taiwan, the“damage”,“comparison” and“a provincial ethnic group” that exist in our real life and the manipula-tion of the topic of national identity. Because of the special relationship between the two sides, the internal resentment in Tai-wan society is easily converted into external one, i,e. aiming their resentment at the mainland, resulting in the rise of “anti China” sentiment from part of Taiwan people. To sum up, we can say that their sentiment is attributed to the close links be-tween the two sides, the collective anxiety under the“fear of China” mentality as well as the rise of“Taiwan subject conscious-ness”. In fact, the sentiment has played an important yet negative role in the stability and development of Taiwan society, cau-sing the spread of “anti China” populism under the resentment mobilization, which leads to the difficulty in building mutual trust and cooperation relationship, or even to the possibility of the conflict between the two sides.
