Qing Dynasty - the China's Strong Root that the "Asian Traitors" were Unable to Cut off What kind of country is the Qing Dynasty? We will find sure answers from analyzing a small anecdote, a historical episode, and a major event. The anecdote was a brief encounter between a Qing Dynasty judge and Wang Jingwei. The episode was Li Hongzhang's military strategy against Japan during the 1896 Jia-Wu Sino-Japanese War. The major event was about how the Qing Dynasty handled opium. In the first anecdote, in answering to the calls of revolution, Wang Jingwei participated in the bombing of a royal carriage and was apprehended on site. Before being beheaded, he wrote: "It is great to have led the knife upon my neck, so I can worthily sacrifice my youthful head" for my country and people. The presiding judge over this close-shut case of a head chopping for treason was so impressed with his poem and eloquent composure decided to let him go. The fact that a country possessed such an attitude, showed that country cared for the people, especially in the self-sacrificing way of cherishing the future pillars of the country. Here the Qing Dynasty affirmed its conviction that the country can perish, but the people must live on. Later, Qing Dynasty's boycotting Westernization and barbarism, delegating power to the generals of the Han ethnics, and finally, through Manchukuo, even accepted the same-root-culture Japan in the management of the country, demonstrated the grace of the Chinese characteristics and amply expressed its benevolence toward all lives under heaven. Then，if we looked at the warlords who have overthrown Qing Dynasty. Their despicability reaffirmed the nobleness of the Qing Dynasty. Therefore, the "Republic of China"(ROC) that Sun Yat-sen and Chiang Kai-shek established on a cut-out piece of land within the territory of Qing Dynasty's China was not China, but a camouflage of a process to destroy China. ROC never really entered the First and Second World Wars as it claimed. ROC only entered a war in which it sold out the country - a "Resisting Asia, Aiding the West" war, but calling it the "Resisting Japanese" war. Therefore, we must abolish all international treaties agreed upon by ROC with the Western powers. And China and Asia should regard ROC as an enemy country, which should be the true identity of Taiwan today. Mao Zedong inherited the great achievement of Zeng Guofan's suppression of the Christian Taiping Heavenly Rebellion. Mao's liberation was China left by the Qing Dynasty, and it was by no means the "Republic of China". China must recover all Qing Dynasty's territory and reach the same high plateaus of prosperity and military might as the hey days of Qing and Ming Dynasty's Zheng He period. In the second episode, although the attitude of Empress Dowager Cixi still favored culture over science and technology and even over sovereignty, Li Hongzhang's attitude was that science and technology was more important than sovereignty, though culture still ranked number one. Therefore, during the Jia-Wu Sino-Japanese War, Li Hongzhang and Japan's attitude was covertly similar. That is, the big brother of Asia, China may not be able to protect Asia anymore. So, the Sino-Japanese War was a practical test to see if Japan could take over the task. This was also how history has recorded : "The Japanese army's attack on the Qing government was a completely mad-man's behavior. It was risking the future of Japan to carry out a gamble with very low winning odds." Therefore, Li Hongzhang's attitude toward Japan was not burdened by history, nor did it carried any prejudice against Japan, especially when he was convinced that the West was the absolute common enemy of Asia, and the difference between Manchu and Japan was not so significantly different, but it all depended on who was more qualified for the role of rescuing Asia. In fact, Japan also has also expressed such an idea during World War II. The main point of Ishihara, the advocate of Asianism, was that "the historical leader, China, was no longer able to lead the yellow race in East Asia to defeat the white race." Was China really that bad? Opium had turned us into the sick men of East Asia, and Western barbarism's democracy, freedom, equality and religion have also made us a mutual exploiting pile of loose sands. Even today, men's habits of smoking and drinking have made them transform their inferior complexes into self-proclaimed superior complexes. So don't even bother thinking about going to wars, even soccer is best not to go out and shame the country. Since Li Hongzhang was the pillar of the Qing Dynasty at that time, he would not easily let Japan win. So he planned a strategy to beat the Japanese. That was to keep all the warships inside the harbor and not leaving their docks, utilizing the advantage of geography and larger and longer cannons. Wikipedia has recorded: "The contrast between the offensive firepower of the Chinese Beiyang Navy and the Japanese joint fleet is as follows. The Beiyang Navy's ship speed is slightly lower, but the tonnage, firepower, armor, and heavy artillery were superior to the Japanese. If the right cannon ammunitions were used, it would inflict heavy damages on the Japanese warships." But at the time, it was a bit like today's China, the ignorant and restless people derived their patriotic sentiments from their strong inferiority complex toward Japan. This opened the door for many despicable opportunists to sell out China to the West. Of course, if they could sell the whole of Asia, the profit will be much bigger. Therefore, unlike Li Hongzhang, who wanted to compete with Japan to see who could best save Asia, these opportunists wanted the warships to rush out the port to "kill the little Japanese devils". As a result, the Japanese faster and rapid-firing gun boat annihilated the whole Qing fleet. These "Asian traitors" regime-changed China to make it a governmentless and lawless land of warlords in 1911, then tried to exterminate Mao Zedong's peasant liberation army, and, in the Second World War, helped the West split Asia by poisoning the bloods between Chinese and Japanese, then sold out China to America, and finally caused Asia to be annihilated by America. Afterwards, they then brought in America to suppress Asia until today. In the third major event, the Qing Dynasty started an anti-opium campaign even in its dying days. An estimate of domestic production in China fell from 35,000 metric tons in 1906 to 4,000 metric tons in 1911. By the same year, the combination of foreign and domestic efforts proved largely successful, but the fall of the Qing government in 1911 effectively meant the end of the anti-opium campaign. In the next 38 years, opium was not reduced and back to rising instead, and even Japan could not resist the temptation of profits from opium trafficking. Only until 1950, Mao Zedong incredibly eliminated opium. He thus truly inherited Qing's China and led us back to resume the position of big brother of Asia. But no matter how strong the root was，it still could be cut off, Just like the time Chiang Kai-shek helped America defeat Japan, Chiang got many of the most advanced weapons from America, so he was absolutely sure he could destroy Mao Zedong's peasant Liberation Army. Chiang's army, thus, started to defeat and chase the People's Liberation Army led by Marshal Lin Biao all the way to the city of Harbin in China's most northeast region. This time, there was no Japanese-controlled area to lend sanctuary to Mao's fleeing troops as it was at the end of the Long March. Lin Biao was sure to be wiped out. As it's been said: "A friend in need is a friend indeed". That was how history has witnessed the true role Japan played in WWII. After surrendering, the Japanese Northeast Army not only did not follow the orders from Chiang Kai-shek to continue to fight the PLA, but also gave the PLA the Japanese weapons, and show PLA how to defeat Chiang Kai-shek's American weapons. We were also seeing that Japan's establishment of the Manchukuo was also a gesture of sincerity, and that Mao Zedong's incidental rescue of the China of the Qing Dynasty shared the same heart with that of Japan. This time, Japan added fertilizer to the big dying tree that was China, so Marshal Lin Biao could stop the tree cutter Chiang Kai-shek in his traitor's work. In this way, Japan passed the burden of liberating Asia to Mao Zedong, that led him to liberate North Korea and Vietnam, and remind the Chinese people to not forget their brother Japan. Today, just like China's time immemorial, the Ming Dynasty inherited the Yuan Dynasty, the Qing Dynasty inherited the Ming Dynasty, and we, after inherited the Qing Dynasty, also have the grand responsibility, like our ancestors before us, to unify "all under heaven" . If Japan and North Korea are to be freed from America military occupation and the pending marginalization as small nations, China must join with them in one East Asian Community. And this is also the only way to bring lasting peace to the world. We know that we can do this because the root that the Qing dynasty planted for us is strong enough.
