This is an interesting concept. However, I think it would be just the
opposite of what Hakka has been doing for the past 2000 years. Hakkas have
been migrating and spreading their culture to wherever they found root. To
establish a Hakka province could mean excluding Hakka from others. There
are a lot of political factors involved. Not party politics but ethnic
politics. There are certainly ethnic autonomous regions in China. If each
ethnic group wants its own province, there will be less and less
communication between the ethnic groups. Each will be an isolated unit.
That is not a healthy culture. It is like creating another Balkan. A
healthy culture has to communicate, exchange and evolve with other cultures,
not to be isolated. Biologically, hybrids are much stronger than inbreeds.
For the same reason. Dandelions can survive all sorts of weather zones and
spread all over the world. If Dandelions are just bred in a locality, it
would soon die off.
