Guide: Song Shenzong (1048-1085) is an ideal and ambitious man. He worked hard and was determined to reform. He is known as "a generation of angry youth". However, such a bullish emperor was repeatedly contradicted by his ministers, which made him depressed and grumbling. During Xining period, Shenzong began to carry out comprehensive system reform, but it was strongly opposed by the scholar officials. Shenzong was determined to carry out the reform. For this reason, he fully developed democracy and personally presided over a feasibility study meeting of reform.
In March of the fourth year of Xining (1071), the demonstration meeting was held as scheduled. The views of the two parties at the meeting were mixed. The general representative of the "supporting school" is naturally song Shenzong, and the core figure of the "clapping school" is Wen Yanbo, a senior figure over 40 years older than Shenzong. Old man Wen is a famous Prime Minister of longevity in history. He once served the grandfather and father of Shenzong. With this capital, the old culture is full of vitality, and does not pay attention to the God in his early 20s at all.
During the debate, Wen Yanbo said: "the ancestors (refers to) the rule of law is all there, there is no need to change which method, hard and complete, will only lose people's hearts." This is obviously to Wang Anshi. Unexpectedly, Shenzong couldn't help saying something that could well represent the interests of the masses: "this reform is not bad for the literati, but it is not bad for the people." When it comes to the pain of old man Wen, he angrily says to the emperor, "don't forget, your majesty, you are ruling the world with the scholar officials, not with the people!" Hey, old man Wen is good enough to talk back to the emperor without blinking. It's also the truth that people have their own way - fifty years of generals, who can compete? So it's qualified to rely on the old to sell the old. However, there are still better than old man Wen, who is not qualified enough to talk back to the emperor. Hou Yanqing's "record of retiring from fasting" reveals this little-known "news" for us.
In Yuanfeng's reign, when Shaanxi failed to use its troops in the Western Xia Dynasty, Shenzong was very angry. He planned to make an example of a typical case. This was a water transport official. The Shenzong entrusted this matter to the Prime Minister Cai Qie. The next day, when Shenzong met Cai, he asked him, "Cai Qing, what happened yesterday can be done?" "I'm going to tell you about it." Chua answered with a smile on her face. As soon as Shenzong heard this tone, he knew that things were not well done, so he said unhappily, "you can do such a clear thing. Is there any doubt?" "yes, Emperor." Cai replied, "since our ancestors, we have never killed any scholars. You have to set a precedent for doing this!"
Hearing this, Emperor Shenzong said to himself, "well, why didn't he think of this? Killing a small person has made a bad reputation. It seems that this bad rule can't be opened. But it's hateful for this guy to delay a big event. He must be punished. So he directed CAI to confirm: "in this case, it's better not to kill. But listen to me, stab me in the words, and send me to the remote places where there are poor mountains and bad waters. " Cai is sure to think, carry it out, the boss has made a big concession. It's strange that all the ministers of the Shenzong Dynasty dare to talk back to the emperor as if they were infected. As soon as Tsai was honest, Zhang, the waiter under the gate, jumped out to practice. The servant is not familiar to ordinary people, but in fact, he was a hot figure at that time. He was at the same level as the prime minister, and also a nickname for the prime minister. Zhang? Is also possessed of unique skills. He not only has the courage to answer back, but also has offensive tactics. He belongs to the elite of "intelligence and courage". Listen to him cold not Ding to come out a dozen ambush words: "do so, rather kill him."
Shenzongyileng: "what do you mean? You'll hurt faster if you play around for me." "as the saying goes, a man can be killed, but he can't be humiliated!" Zhang? The answer is brilliant and classic. A word choked Shenzong. He was a little annoyed and angry: "I can't do anything happy!" well, the emperor was annoyed, and he would stop it. But, instead of converging, he added a more important sentence: "it's better not to do such a happy thing!" in the face of such a bullish subject, Shenzong was silent.
