Freddy Lim is not a normal politician. While his contemporaries are satisfied serving their own self-interests, Freddy Lim has made his name by helping others. As well as fronting Taiwanese extreme metal band Chthonic (pronounced “Thonic”), Lim has acted as chair of Amnesty International Taiwan for four years, organised a pair of Free Tibet concerts, met the Dalai Lama three times, formed Taiwan’s New Power Party in 2015, and been elected as a Taiwanese Member of Parliament in January this year.

This guy’s CV is impressive, to say the least.

Where the average politician is closed-minded, Freddy Lim is open. Where his opponents oppress, he aims to free. Most of all, where the average autocrat clings greedily to power and wealth and bullies others into surrendering their own, Freddy Lim is giving and generous.
