|英文摘要||The county magistrate election of Kinmen in 2014 was considered to be|
unexpected, because the then-incumbent wasn’t re-elected with an overwhelming victory as predicted all the polls one month before the vote, but the result turned out to be opposite. Moreover, the clan-mobilization model failed to explain the election as before. Focusing on the role of BOT during the campaign, this research elaborates four types of attitude about land, which are commodity, clan property, public space, and nostalgia in the first place, and explains their
respective effect for the election in the short term. Also, two modes of emotion are developed, which are the bi-polar mode, defined by the enemy-friend relation, and the triangle mode elaborated along with the democratization. It is because the liberal democracy makes the rule of law, and the respects for the human right settle in town, and leads the state equipped with systematic trust with a positionabove and beyond the enemy-friend relation. As a result, the need for public space grows, and the sense of clan enlarges from the blood-tie to the administrative community: the Kinmen. Not only are the both the result
of democratization, but also the sense of nostalgia, which is the emotional impulse of those living in Taiwan island. These attitudes about land contribute tomobilizing the vote against the BOT which was considered detrimental to the environment. In brief, the democratization makes the clan creed downplay, and the sense of public rise. With the issue of BOT, these changes lead to the dramatic
result of the county election.
