Today, Xiaobian brings us anti-corruption. Readers who are interested in it can take a look with Xiaobian.
Corruption is a headache for each dynasty. Successive dynasties have also used various methods to prevent and control official corruption, such as high salary, founding a country to punish corrupt officials by skinning grass, with little effect.
And when future generations talk about the best times, they must think about it. But in fact, Yongzheng, between and, is also an indispensable emperor to create this prosperous era. It was Yongzheng who succeeded Kangxi and Qianlong.
Kangxi was a pioneer in his early years, but as he grew older, he gradually tolerated his trusted subjects. It is precisely because of this that corruption was serious in the last years of Kangxi. Although Kangxi knew the situation, he was powerless, so he had to give it to his successor.
When Yongzheng took over, the number of Treasury deficit was astonishing. The great empire of the Qing Dynasty looked powerful on the surface, but it was empty inside. It was an empty shelf. Yong Zheng had no choice but to fight against corruption. In addition to punishing and killing corrupt officials, he added three more effective measures:
1. Compensation by the person responsible for the deficit
雍正元年初，巡抚黄炳奉命向 报告了调查 仓谷案的情况。 从康熙四十五年至康熙五十三年八年间，以存贮粮食为名，累计收银240多万两。
At the beginning of yongzhengyuan, Huang Bing, governor of Shandong Province, was ordered to report to the emperor the investigation of Canggu case in Shandong Province. In the eight years from the 45th year of Kangxi to the 53rd year of Kangxi, Shandong Province collected more than 2.4 million liang of silver in the name of grain storage.
But in fact, only 930000 Liang was used to buy food, and more than 60% of the remaining silver was divided into shares by officials at all levels at that time. Emperor Yongzheng heard about it before he ascended the throne. After he ascended the throne, he immediately promoted Huang Bing to governor, hoping that he could investigate this matter. Huang Bing did not fail to live up to Emperor Yongzheng's expectations, and quickly found out the plot.
Because Emperor Yongzheng understood that officials' corruption was mostly for the benefit of their family's descendants. This measure reflects the determination of Emperor Yongzheng to punish corruption and never give up until the goal is achieved.
2. Fear crime and commit suicide, and increase punishment
In the Yongzheng era, they didn't even have a dead end. Yongzheng's policy is: never let him die! Li Bin, a Taoist in Guangdong Province, and Tao fan, a Taoist in Fujian Province, are afraid of committing suicide because of corruption, bribery and being involved in the case of deficit.
Yongzheng ordered them to find their children and family members to settle accounts. Yongzheng pointed out that these guys knew that they were guilty of great crimes and could not protect themselves, so they wanted to deny death and sacrifice their lives to save their property for future generations to enjoy. There was no door!
3. Kill corrupt officials and show them to current officials
Yongzheng said that killing corrupt officials should not only be seen by ordinary people, but also by officials. No one is allowed to leave.
Let them have a good look, let them have a good look, let them have a good look, let them have a bad look, let them have a bad look, let them have a bad dream! Let's see who dares to embezzle!
Maybe Emperor Yongzheng had some criticism in other aspects, but there was absolutely nothing to say in the way of punishing corrupt officials.
