Sui Wen Ti or Yang Chien, An Ancient Emperor Of China, and Why He Matters To Us Today

Sui Wen Ti


Sui Wen Ti

Sui Wen Ti united China after a period in which it had been divided and disorganized for several hundred years. Originally named Yang Chien, the emperor's united version of China has been mostly a homogeneous entity ever since he reigned there. Because of Sui Wen Ti China has always been one of the most powerful nations on the planet since his unification of so many diverse cultures and ethnic groups under one super structure or larger culture; And because of emperor Sui Wen Ti - China has NOT had to suffer through so many horrific wars as it otherwise would have - as Europe has, with all of it's conflicts and ethnic divisions.

Is there any wonder why there are so many Chinese? There could have easily been as many Europeans were Europe to have ever had a lasting and sustained unification as China has had.

One of emperor Sui Wen Ti's most lasting and impressive reforms was to use civil service exams to determine who were the brightest and most capable persons for administration in his government. Oh sure, that system had been a part of the Han Dynasty, but following the demise of the Han - China had fallen into a sort of dark ages, and such posts had become hereditary in nature -and we can all see how well that would work out in the end.

Sui Wen Ti also employed the rule of avoidance - the principle that provincial officials could only serve in the province that they were born in. In an age without such high speed communication and travel, it doesn't take a bright bulb to see how important that was in keeping China cohesive.

Sui Wen Ti was capable, but cautious, and all of his policies were effective. It is said that he relied heavily upon his wife, and that she was always a tremendous help to him. Sadly, his death was thought to be at the hands of one of his sons. It's pretty obvious that his son was a fool, and after the foolish son who succeeded him was killed in the year 618, the Sui dynasty was over. But the united China has for the most part retained it's cohesion since the time that it was united under Sui Wen Ti in 589 A.D.

China And The USA


China and the USA

All over the world and all over corporate controlled media we are forever hearing about China. Oh! Oh! Oh!

We owe China so much money!

No, we don't. You might, but I owe China absolutely nothing. I don't use credit cards, thank you very little. Usury is evil, and evil persons use Usury, and the Chinese merely bought up the credit card debt that reckless consumer media drones charged up in their pursuit of being fashionable instead of wise. I'm not really wise, per se, but I'm barely a consumer at all in amoral America. I'm just not buying anything on credit, and I'm not buying anything I don't need from any corporation for any reason - so long as I'm cognizant of such, and as is possible. "We" the people don't owe a single solitary cent to anything that we didn't agree to. The "debt crisis" is ridiculous chicken little fear mongering from a criminal enterprise called mass media. End of story.

Modern History

Many years ago a very Evil man figured out that were he in charge of the volume of a nation's currency that it didn't matter who wrote the laws or wore a crown in that land - HE was Lord and Master of ALL in that land. He was correct, he knew it, and most everyone else in this world is just too stupid to realize that simple little truth that the son of Moses Amschel Bauer, and his progeny have known forever since.

Here in America the never ending clown show of American politics manifests itself through the very lame two party paradigm, and a divided and soon to be conquered populace that knows nothing about history, and can't see past the false reality sold to them through mass media - all the while, they are certain that their party and it's candidates are right, and the others are just wrong.

One big distraction!

None of it matters in the slightest - someone totally separate from the United States Government controls the volume of currency in this land; so it makes nary a flip who writes what as some sort of stupid law.

Ethnic Diversity In Europe, And Global Currency To Come.

In this world there are many divisions, and probably the oldest, and still most common division among peoples is that of ethnicity. How many ethnic groups there are in this world is not something that I know. What I do know is that there are - according to Wikipedia and the government of China - fifty six recognized ethnic groups in the nation of China

Europe? Well, according to Wikipedia there are eighty seven distinct ethnic groups in Europe - but seventy percent of Europe's population is made up, currently, of only nine of those groups, as follows:

  1. the Russians (ca. 95 million residing in Europe),[3]
  2. the Germans (ca. 82 million),[4]
  3. the French (ca. 65 million)[5]
  4. the British (55 - 61 million)[note 1]
  5. the Italians (ca. 59 million)[note 2]
  6. the Spanish (ca. 46 million),[6]
  7. the Ukrainians (ca. 41 million),
  8. the Poles (ca. 38 million).
  9. the Turks (ca. 35 million)

As of 2010 there were a total of 857 million persons living in Europe, and as stated above, the nine ethnic groups above make up roughly seventy percent of that population total. But with those peoples and their Euro currency - the European economy still isn't the size of the United States Economy, or the Chinese Economy. Because the United States has been bribed and murdered into accepting the eurofilth central banking system, and has a eurofilth director giving away undisclosed amounts of money to European banks in the bail out - it's somewhat fair to say that the United States Economy is tied to the European Union's economy.

As is widely believed, and actually true so far as United States credit card debt and Chinese holdings of such debt as assets is concerned - and because of the grand global design that George Herbert Walker Bush stated plainly with glazed eyes on national television concerning a New World Order, you can bet that with a collaboration of the Chinese that will surely demand payment for their debt, and continuing profiteering and Arabian resource grabs combined with unprecedented murders of corporate American imperialism - there will at some point be a global currency.

In the Western World people venerate Charlemagne, but his contemporary or parallel in China, Sui Wen Ti, will prove to have been a far superior influence on this world that we all share, and watch fall apart.

Hi! I used to be "mib56789". FYI. Your HUB has been shared at my blogs, etc., hoping to redirect others to this information you've provided.

Wesman Todd Shaw (author) from Kaufman, Texas on May 09, 2013:

SubRon7 - Thanks Very Much Good Sir!

I didn't want it to get "idled." why I suddenly shared it on FB :)

James W. Nelson from eastern North Dakota on May 09, 2013:

Wesman, this is one hellova hub!

Wesman Todd Shaw (author) from Kaufman, Texas on November 10, 2011:

Hey thanks fpherj48!!!!!

I was learning all of this stuff as writing it - that's a beat way to create content, and can be very hit and miss....but if you learn something, then while doing it, it's a score!

Suzie from Carson City on November 10, 2011:

Wes...Finally getting around to catching up on some hub reading. I must say this was a good choice I made! Again, you have taught me some things I am grateful to learn. I love your comments on our "debt"...that definitely is not OUR debt! Couldn't agree with you more! Up & awesome, Wes.

Wesman Todd Shaw (author) from Kaufman, Texas on August 24, 2011:

Hi Simone!!!!

No, Sui Wen Ti didn't invent the civil service exams - he brought them back and made them stick - and in a time where communications moved "a bit slower" than now, it was probably EXTREMELY important to have local people, the smartest local people - in charge of things in the area that they actually know the issues of.

Hmmm........ no, I think we here in the states have to pass what is even called a "Civil Service Exam" in order to work for things like the Post Office.

Those academic tests in schools, I'm afraid - are a problem. Glad I no longer have to prove my proficiency in math! YUCK!

Simone Haruko Smith from San Francisco on August 24, 2011:

Wow, interesting! I enjoyed reading your commentary on the 'debt crisis' as well as learning about a new person in history. So it was Sui Wen Ti who created the civil service exams, huh? Are these the same ones that have evolved into the countrywide exams that are taking over high school students' lives now? Just read a very interesting piece on those. But this was fun- voted up!

Wesman Todd Shaw (author) from Kaufman, Texas on August 22, 2011:

Howdy Mico Sam!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you a broker for heavy equipment? I actually used to do some of that myself!

Wesman Todd Shaw (author) from Kaufman, Texas on August 22, 2011:

Hey Sue Swan - definitely, but I think the VAST majority either can't or just won't pay the monthly balance due to foolishness.

Hey, I'd be right there with them were I foolish enough to have one!

Mico Sam from Irvine, CA on August 22, 2011:

I think a united states of europe is a good idea all together.

Sueswan on August 21, 2011:

Very interesting and informative.

Nothing wrong with using a credit card if you can pay the balance in full each month. Most people don't though.

Wesman Todd Shaw (author) from Kaufman, Texas on August 21, 2011:

They say that it's better to give than to receive, Dusty - and it's certainly true that there should be some give and take in all of that.

The sad thing is that those that do the most giving don't seem to realize that they aren't much going to be enjoying themselves without the rest of us.

50 Caliber from Arizona on August 21, 2011:

Wesman, death is but a favor, I hope to give a few favors first...HAHAHAHAHA

Wesman Todd Shaw (author) from Kaufman, Texas on August 20, 2011:

mib56789 - LOL!!!!!! I think you are right about the deft ability that some have to not draw attention to themselves - very handy skill to have!

Wesman Todd Shaw (author) from Kaufman, Texas on August 20, 2011:

Hey Dusty - they can line me up right next to you on the undesirable execution assembly line. That would be an honor for me!

Wesman Todd Shaw (author) from Kaufman, Texas on August 20, 2011:

CMHypno - WHOA!!! Personal responsibility is one heck of a subject, isn't it!!!

Gosh, I'm sure I'm guilty too - but seems like everyone is denying some things they are at least partially responsible for. The further on down the line you are the easier it is to deny having ANY responsibility. .. .but I think it's metaphysically impossible for anyone to never be responsible on some level or another for .. .damn near anything.

I sure do want to go to Europe some day - wonder if I'll ever have the dough to go.

Oh - and when I use the term "Eurofilth" that is only in regards to that diabolical family of bankers and their associates.

Wesman Todd Shaw (author) from Kaufman, Texas on August 20, 2011:

Hey thanks, Chris!!! Lots of things going on in this world, it's impossible for anyone to be on top of all of them - or even to always be entirely correct about the ones that they presume to be on top of!! ~raises hand~

mib56789 on August 20, 2011:

Mornin' Todd! I don't have time to read this HUB right now, so I'm bookmarking for later. When I was a kid I saw a Charlie Brown cartoon that explained that the Chinese built the railroad in America and I've been interested in the Chinese ever since. They have this unique way of blending into the background of wherever they choose to live. People always talking about how many Chinese there are and I'm like: "Yeah! And that count only includes the ones living in China!" (Smile!)

50 Caliber from Arizona on August 20, 2011:

Wesman, exactly, I don't owe jack shit to anyone, but my God first always, myself,family [even though they are dogs and asses]then simply thanks to my friends and help if I have it to give. My credit score? zero 18 years unless they rate in-activity. I hear what your saying and it is coming, it just won't effect me unless I've made the list of undesirables, and I most likely have, but don't care, dust

CMHypno from Other Side of the Sun on August 20, 2011:

Hi Wesman, I think that you will find that over here most of us Europeans don't want to be part of a United States of Europe - a fairly loosely knit trading bloc was as far as most folks wanted to go.

I think that it all comes down to personal responsibility. Individuals have to man up and take responsibility for their debts and so do nations. If the USA continues to blame external forces and other countries for its financial woes, then they will never get their house in order. You may throw around terms like 'Eurofilth' but it is your government who are doing the dealing with them. All countries have to deal with a global market to a certain degree, but still have the responsibility of maintaining control of their own fiscal policies. This is one of the big problems of the Eurozone - one size does not fit all, and the financial mechanisms are not in place to allow economies like Greece and Ireland to become more competitive and move towards growth.

With the world economy, unfortunately it seems that instead of looking forward to innovative, new ways of doing things to get things moving again, most countries and markets are desperately trying to make the old models work. Well they failed, we need something new that it is fairer for all, and across the world we need the courage to start the change.

Christopher Antony Meade from Gillingham Kent. United Kingdom on August 20, 2011:

Very well put Wesman. I dont agree with all your conclusions, but the fact that an unelected body was able to downgrade the credit rating of the richest country on the planet points to a lot of what you say being true.
