In the eyes of Westerners, the eastern nations advocate autocracy and are backward and conservative, but Japan soon broke away from Asia and entered Europe to become a developed country. The reason for this is that many Chinese have studied it, and there are different opinions. Some scholars believe that Japan’s success is related to its social structure, which is more similar to the West in tradition, and is not fortunate.

It can be seen that the importance of cultural tradition can determine the direction of a country.

So countless Chinese are also looking for new content in traditional culture, hoping to be in line with the West. For this reason, they can be described as “unscrupulous”. For example, some people praised the great Song Dynasty as a “virtual monarch Republic”. I don’t believe it. However, there are also contents that reflect modern values in Chinese traditional thoughts. Let’s talk about one today.

It refers to the period of Gu Gongfu, the former leader of the Zhou Dynasty. Of course, when it comes to the period of ancient Gongfu, if the age is a little later and the historical data is a little more authentic, it may not be reliable. In the real Chinese history, it is very difficult to find the content of modern values. It’s very good to see all the fictions. At least it shows that the ideological elites of this nation have thought about universal values.

Let’s go on. In the period of ancient Gongfu, the country was well governed. At this time, the Huns sent troops to attack and asked for money. Gu Gongyu’s father knew that he could not win the war, so he offered the money without saying a word. Soon the Huns came again. This time they wanted not only money, but also land and people. The people of Zhou were all angry and vowed to fight the Huns to the death. The rulers of later generations will certainly make an important speech at this time: “the Xiongnu imperialists want to invade our land and enslave our people. We will never allow them. From today on, no one, young or old, north or south, has the responsibility of guarding the land, and should have the determination to sacrifice everything. Anyone who dares to speak will be beheaded. Our national sovereignty will never be violated.”

However, Gu Gongyu’s father didn’t say so. His words made people tongue tied: “if there are people to build a king, it will benefit them. Today Rong and di are fighting with our land and people. What’s the difference between the people and me? The people want to fight with me and kill their father and son, but I can’t bear to do it.”

It means that the common people support the monarch in order to benefit themselves. It doesn’t matter who rules them. What is the difference between my rule and the Hun rule? If, because I want to rule, I drive them to fight and cause death, I can’t do it. God, this obviously explains the famous theory that human rights are greater than sovereignty.

With these words, Gu Gongyu took his relatives and secretly went to Qixia to settle down. It turned out that after those citizens knew about it, they all supported the old and the young, found Qixia, continued to support him as the monarch, and re established the country under Qixia.

After reading this, I can loudly announce that modern values are not necessarily the same as those in the West. China has had them since ancient times.
