In the Shaanxi Province’s Baoji Bronzeware Museum lies a bronze vessel by the name of He Zun. It is a first-grade national artifact, and one of the 64 items banned from exhibiting abroad.
The 122 characters engraved on the interior of He Zun describe an event from the depths of history: more than 3000 years ago, a noble by the name of Gu Gong Dan Fu and his clan resided in the region that is Changwu area, Bin County in the modern Shaanxi Province. In those turbulent years, pillaging slaves, tools, and food from other clans was one of the chief means of survival. The Quan Rong clan did such torments upon Gu Gong Dan Fu’s people, and the endless conflict between the two clans made life for the population unbearable. Faced with Quan Rong’s raids, Gu Gong Dan Fu made a decision that would change the fate of his clan. He told his people: whether you serve me or Quan Rong, it is your choice. Gu Gong Dan Fu decided to abandon the pointless war against Quan Rong, taking his family and close allies west to find a new place to settle in and call home. Yet the people refused to stay and fall under Quan Rong’s rule, as they believed Gu Gong Dan Fu was a moral man who truly loved those who served him. And so, they followed Gu Gong Dan Fu’s path, bringing their children and elderly with them, until eventually arriving in a place called Zhouyuan, at the foot of Qi Mountain in the modern Shaanxi Province. There they began their lives anew, raising future generations…
This small tribe eventually grew stronger and defeated the Shang Dynasty with its own six centuries of history, creating the Western Zhou Dynasty in its place. This dynasty shaped the ritual system that has influenced China for more than 3000 years and is the origin of the Chinese civilization.
Using Shang Yang’s five tactics, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) fools the Chinese people and implements totalitarian rule. It deceives the world, claiming China is not yet suitable for democracy. Historical fact is one of the best weapons against CCP rule. The rise and fall of dynasties, including the downfall of Shang and the rise of Western Zhou, can serve as hints as to what will come.
