Welcome to Kiyasu Green!

My name is Kiyasu Oka (first name is Kiyasu), and I am a Taiwanese living in Taipei, Taiwan. I am a full-time professional illustrator and entrepreneur.

Why I Don't and Won't Do It. ~~ The Courage to Live Consciously ~~ is an article where I talk about my deepest secrets and thoughts I once thought would be impossible for me to share with anyone else! Now I am sharing them directly and openly on my site, and I hope people will benefit from my wisdom(?) on love and marriage, NOT owning a "smart" phone, business success, NOT using any of the "polite forms" in the Japanese language, entrepreneurship and leaving a legacy, becoming younger as I age, and so much more!!

Articles I wrote:
  1. Chen Shui-Bian (陳水扁) is Innocent!In October of 2015, when I accidentally learned that Chen Shui-Bian had attempted suicide in June (2013), I was so shocked and sad that I had to do something to help and defend him.
  2. Taiwan is my Country. — A personal article and love letter that took me three months to write! At that time, I would sort of wake up, spend the day, and go to bed thinking about and working on this... for months!
  3. Why I Don't and Won't Do It. — I share my deepest secrets and thoughts here. I talked about why I NEVER owned a "smart" phone, why you should NOT get married, why I don't use "polite forms," and so much more!
  4. World Countries List — My "guide" to writing a better list of the countries of the world that maybe every person should become aware of.

It is SO annoying when people seem to assume that I am so-called "into politics." I never was, and I never really understood anything that happens in the news, either. SO many people seem to assume that my articles are so-called "about politics" or so-called "related to politics," and it bothers me very much that people would blindly think that!! They are FAR from EVEN being CLOSE to being so-called "politics"!!

I am only some person who sort of grew up being scared about how people don't really understand that Taiwan is a country, and someone who is sharing my personal feelings about it. In some sense, I grew up being the only one who didn't really understand anything about political parties because this is "too adult"-ish for me. As an adult myself now, I STILL think this is "too adult"-ish.

When I learned about what happened to Chen Shui-Bian in 2015, I ended up becoming very passionate about his innocence. I accidentally learned about certain things that are often discussed in politics for Taiwan, as I became focused on sharing with the world that he is innocent. I was only being a detective and defense attorney to find out the truth about someone's innocence, finding out that he is suffering from illnesses, and taking care of him like a doctor. I never even THOUGHT that this was even CLOSE to being so-called "politics."

If a friend of yours suffers some kind of injustice personally or becomes ill, and then you start to help defend them and take care of them, would you even call this politics?

If your friend is dying, would you like it if you ask for help, and the person blindly doesn't want to do anything to help you because they somehow decided that what you are doing is "politics"?

Just because the person I am caring for happens to be a former president of Taiwan, people seem to NOT be able to understand something that is SO SIMPLE any more. Sometimes I am VERY SCARED of the brains of people in this world.

I also STILL find it very strange that people would actually think that my Taiwan article is related to so-called "politics." Like, how? WHY do people SO easily think it is related to "politics"?! That is SO strange!! I DON'T feel ANY politics-like feelings when I read it!! Everything ELSE I find on-line about Taiwan being a country, they DO have a very politics-like feeling when I read them!

But MY Taiwan article doesn't!! AT ALL!!

I grew up thinking that Taiwan is a country and it is probably common sense. I didn't even KNOW that there was this "politics" thing that I never paid attention to!! Like, whatever this "politics" thing is, was only something that is "too adult"-ish for me to understand, and I have NO IDEA what people were talking about when they talk about politics! When people spoke about "too adult"-ish stuff, I felt as if I were listening to some alien language. And that when I ran into people who DIDN'T think that Taiwan is a country, I became shocked and scared, and felt this maybe one-second-like feeling and would maybe want to run away and cry in a corner... because I was too scared of "too adult"-ish people. It was all TOO SCARY for me. And I STILL felt this way even in college!! Like, these people CANNOT understand things that are SO SIMPLE... for some reason.

But it felt as if they had some scary power...

... And I was SO scared.

I STILL did NOT really know that saying "Taiwan is a country" would be seen as "politics" by many others, and suffered from not knowing why, and didn't even know I was suffering. I would probably get into situations where I thought the person was either "cruel," "dumb," or "too adult" or something... and not know the deeper truth.

When you say "America is a country" or "Japan is a country," would you even call that "politics"?

I do the EXACT same thing for Taiwan and then decided to mention more information about the country, and then people somehow automatically assume that this is so-called "politics." And worse is that when I try to explain that this is NOTHING related to politics AT ALL, people are completely blind and deaf and just don't understand at all!

Just because I happened to mention many things that are discussed in politics, it DOESN'T MEAN that I am talking about anything related to it!!

I really wonder about people's brains in this world. Their sense for Basic Logic and Reasoning as well. I am VERY scared of people's deep brainwashing.

(My name is Kiyasu Oka and "Kiyasu Green" is the title of this Web site. The "Green" comes from "green tea." It doesn't have any meaning at all!)

(Because "kiyasu" was already taken, and I didn't like "kiyasuoka" that much, I needed to come up with something else. Then, I was looking at the cup of green tea on my desk at that time and suddenly I decided to add "green" onto it.)

(I didn't even "know" that there was this "blue" and "green" thing in the politics of Taiwan!!)

(It is also SO annoying every time a person says something like "Your political endeavours are so inspiring!! :D I admire your talents!! You are a very rare and special person that I should cherish more in this lifetime!" Like, I feel touched and moved by the compliment, but at the same time, I also feel very uncomfortable that the person is assuming that what I am doing for Taiwan and Chen Shui-Bian (陳水扁) is so-called "politics.")


I am still very grateful for the times I could easily and casually enter the Legislative Yuan (立法院).
The photos above were taken in January of 2016.

I once worked on helping defend the innocence of the former president of Taiwan, from October 2015 to April 2016, as if it were the only thing in life I am passionate about... and the only thing I would wake up and go to bed thinking about ^^;

This eventually led me to write an article and piece of writing called "Taiwan is my Country."

The article took me three months to write. ^^;

At that time, I would wake up, spend the day, and go to bed thinking about and working on writing my article... for three months! ^^;

Fortunately, my article on Taiwan received praise and support from all kinds of people (professors, lawyers, scholars, astrologers, entreprenuers, journalists, artists, etc.) all over the world.

I hope that you can read Taiwan is my Country. I have never written any piece of writing that would receive so many positive responses from so many different kinds of people from all over the world!

I hope you can enjoy your time on my Web site, whether that is looking at my illustration work or reading my articles! I hope that at least either my artwork or my Taiwan page will make your world different and brighter, after seeing or reading it!
