As mentioned above, the GMD focused their efforts on gaining the support of wealthy businessmen in big cities. An example of this is that over 90% of revenue raised by the GMD came from areas near Shanghai, the largest international port and financial capital of China . As such, the GMD already did not have support of the peasants, and the party lost even more support with their inability to manage their own economy, spending most their revenue on military expenditures. Faced with economic problems, the GMD printed more money, resulting in the loss of value and leading to hyperinflation (1000% inflation in Shanghai in 1947.) As the GMD economy collapsed, the population of China turned their allegiance towards the only other viable solution to their problems: the CCP.
The Influence of Kējǔ on China and Foreign Countries The Imperial Examination System of China (Chinese: 科舉; pinyin: kējǔ) has originated more than fourteen hundred years ago and, until its abolishment in 1904, has been the main method of appointing government officials. Though containing some serious drawbacks, it was still uncommonly progressive for its time and has left a remarkable heritage.

The Han Dynasty was founded by Liu Bang in 206 BCE and lasted for 426 years until corruption and weak leaders resulted in the breakup of the Han Dynasty into 3 kingdoms in 220 CE. The Han Dynasty was strong and had many achievements in its golden age. A golden age is a time of prosperity and new inventions in an empire. A golden age normally occurs when a new leader is selected to run the empire. The philosophy of government was Confucianism, and the style of government was a bureaucracy, which was when the emperor used many government officials to help him make decisions.
This creates the notion that for ordinary people, justice is something they have to pray for and not something that is given to them by virtue of their inalienable human rights (Nassaar 148). The same themes occur today as seen in the case or rampant inequality and laws that favor the rich. Just as the leaders in both Oedipus and Antigone show themselves as having absolute power and having to worry very little about the consequences of their actions, the same can be said about those in power today (Miller 245). Wealth, prestige and popularity are the vestiges of power in societies around the world at the present and they are increasingly isolated to a small percentage of the
These leaders enforced justice, were wealthy and elite. During China’s first Dynasty, the Xia Dynasty, around 16th Century B.C, when farmers wanted to be united and not fight with each other for their produce, they reached out to wealthier people who owned gold and silver and asked them to be their “leader”. They called these leaders royalty. These leaders who were far more “superior” and powerful than them, referred the people as “commoners”. The Tang Dynasty was full of power hungry leaders.

He must avoid foolish arrogance, lying, and boasting (125). I agree with this demand because the courtier has to be an image that motivates others in a way that they will not feel the need to express the same negative emotions. This is especially true for the prince because the actions of the courtier could affect the emotional state of the prince, thus affect his judgement. This is similar to the way in which modern day workers maintain a certain level of professionalism that is not only shown verbally, but physically as well. Although the prince would be honest in speaking about his emotions, his words, which reflect a negative presence around the prince could also be interpreted as disrespect.

Confucianism Confucianism is a way of life taught by Confucius in China. Confucianism is perhaps best understood as an all-encompassing humanism.

So if you want to claim literally the communist country for your side, that is to say the people who've put together the single biggest system of economic and social rights... I think I've said
Nixon was able to integrate this into the situation by speaking directly to the common people. Nixon used his own financial problems, and in a sense, made it relatable to sixty million Americans. He exemplified that he cared more about their opinion of his character than the amount of money he had. The approach he used to deliver his flaws was inspiring because he never let a few financial problems keep him from accomplishing his goals. A man who can bare his life before a significantly large audience would gain much more respect than a man who inherited his father’s money and believed that only the wealthy folk could be successful in
