Wang Ling’s fleet finally appeared, but there were twenty-five dilapidated old seagoing ships!
Ran Min heart thumped-did they have any accident in the sea?
When Wang Ling left the boat, Ran Min greeted him personally.
"Minister Wang Ling KouJian positions! Long live my emperor! "
As soon as I saw Ran Min posing like this to meet her, Wang Ling was grateful and cried, so she knelt down directly to Ran Min.
Ran Min lifted Wang Ling up and sighed, "Wang Ling, you have worked hard."
"I don’t have to work hard to expand overseas energy empire, but it’s my honor to expand overseas energy in China."
Ran Min slightly, and said, "what can you gain by crossing the sea this time? So many people came back after you sailed the fleet? "
Wang Lingwen said, "In response, the fleet suffered from tsunami, hurricane, storm and sea animals in the sea, and many people were damaged. The seagoing ships were still in the New World, and some indigenous people died in the war. Only a few people came back because I ordered some soldiers to temporarily settle in the New World to build ports and lighthouses."
"oh? Have you really discovered the new continent? " Ran Min was beaming.
"Yes, and I discovered the new continent not only one but two! Just as you told me two years ago, there is a new continent called Australia and another called America in the east of the sea! The fleet of ministers has arrived there! "
Ran Min was ecstatic and grabbed Wang Ling’s hand and said, "Did you bring back all the corn, sweet potatoes and potatoes?"
"Yes, I brought back all three kinds of agricultural species and cultivated some myself!"
Wang Ling then asked people to carry one laundry list after another and put it on the surface of the laundry list. It was corn, sweet potatoes and potatoes!
Ran Min grabbed a corn cob and said with a smile, "Great! I, Da Wei, will be worried about famine again! "
Ran Min himself knows very well that the importance of these three agricultural products is self-evident.
In ancient times, it was actually very simple that everyone could fill their stomachs and not starve to death!
The so-called "prosperous times of kanggan" in later generations was just boasted by the imperial literati of the Qing court and the old people of the Manchu Dynasty. The struggle against the Qing Dynasty and the restoration of the Qing Dynasty never stopped. Can’t we overthrow the rule of the Qing Dynasty?
Either a lot of people can make a living before they starve to death!
And the key to this is the introduction of potatoes, corn and sweet potatoes. At least these things can be eaten and easy to grow
So Ran Min immediately decided to find several villages near the girder, and the experimental results were very good, so he directly promoted corn, sweet potato and potato in all parts of the country. It was really a great natural disaster to eat this kind of agricultural products and still live!
Ran Min rewarded Wang Ling and others and set out to prepare for the second trip to the sea.
Chapter 62 Take the scholar
fengtian hall
With the order of CRRC House that Liu Zhixuan "Chao" had been waiting outside the temple for a long time, all the civil and military officials entered the Fengtian Temple in an orderly manner.
And Ran Min has been sitting in the dragon chair overlooking the ministers.
At this time, it was not as strict and strict as in the Qing Dynasty. The emperor bowed to the arch and ruled by relying on the literati to rule the sky together.
Since ancient times, China has had the style of "honoring the wise". When the monarch treats ministers, he usually sits opposite each other and talks about it. However, since the Qin and Han Dynasties, Confucian rituals have been practiced in all dynasties. Therefore, in order to show the dignity of the emperor, Confucian scholars often advocate that ministers should sit at the court and the monarch should sit mainly.
Ran Min restored the ancient Chinese rites and music, and naturally he would not stick to this vulgar ceremony.
Generally speaking, the ministers of the Great Wei Empire still have to kneel down at the court, which is necessary, but there are some special circumstances.
"Sit down!"
As Ran Min waved his hand, his ministers all sat down in the futon in an orderly manner according to their positions.
"Long live my emperor! Long live my emperor!" The ministers kowtowed after a ceremony.
"thank you!"
When the ministers are all well, Ran Min said faintly, "Zhu Qing recently discovered some shortcomings in the imperial bureaucracy and had to change them!"
"The empire is vast, the territory is unprecedented, the city is so vast, and the population is so large that many officials are needed to govern me. There are many talented people in Dawei, but I found that many officials are talented and have unconsciously become corrupt officials over the years! Coupled with the rapid expansion of the empire, it is obviously not enough to rely on existing officials or talents prepared by the court. "
"I wonder what you are going to do?" Cui Hao had guessed what Ran Min was going to do, but he still crustily skin of head and asked.
Ran Min nodded slightly and said, "Guo Jian and Ji Xuegong are the highest institutions of learning in the Great Wei Empire. Their academic bases are all in the DPRK or local governments. Every year, ministers or local officials recommend some talents, but I don’t know whether Xiaolian has real talent or learning. The court is not very clear."
"It can be said that the procuratorial system in the Han Dynasty and the formal system in the Nine Middle Schools in the Wei and Jin Dynasties are no longer suitable for the current situation in Dawei!"
When I heard that Ran Min was going to reform the national talent selection system, many ministers with aristocratic backgrounds felt a sense of foreboding.
Sure enough, Ran Min then said, "I want to create a’ imperial examination system’ to replace the imperial examination system and the ninth middle school system."
"I don’t know if this imperial examination system has merit?"
"The imperial examination system is based on the principles of fairness, justice and publicity. There are two kinds of permanent subjects, namely, regular subjects and system subjects. There are more than 50 kinds of scientific examinations, such as Tiejing, Moyi, Poetry, Scholar, Jing, Jinshi, Scholar, Fa, Zi and Arithmetic. They are divided into four levels, after having obtained the provincial examination, and after having obtained the provincial examination in palace examination. The provincial examination is held in the county, and the provincial examination is held in the state. The Ministry of Ritual and the Ministry of Official Affairs run palace examination personally."
"After having obtained the provincial examination, the scholar will be called a scholar, and the juren will be called a juren. After having obtained the provincial examination, the scholar will be called a scholar, and the scholar will pass palace examination. In addition, I also plan to set up martial arts as the main examination subject of the Ministry of War, including horse shooting, step shooting, flat shooting, janjawid and weight wrestling."
The ministers were frightened when they heard the news.
In the suggestion, Cheng Weiyi quickly got up and said, "It is not difficult for my officials to carry out this imperial examination system in China, and since the establishment of the Ninth Middle School, scholars have not praised them for suddenly launching the imperial examination system for fear of losing the hearts of the people."
"Hum" popular feeling? I think it’s a scholar’s heart? " Ran Min skimmed the pie mouth, "I admit that the imperial examination system and No.9 Middle School Zhengzhi system have their merits, but many slots are suitable for the time and not suitable for the time! We should keep pace with the times! "
Although Xu Ji of Dali Temple is from the cremation background, he is a hardcore emperor party and has always been a dog leg of Ran Min. Now he suddenly comes out when he hears Ran Min say this.
"Positions rightly point out! In the past, the imperial examination system in the Han Dynasty came into being in the ninth middle school in Wei and Jin Dynasties because most of the talents came from aristocratic families, but there were too few scholars. But now it is different. They have been running official schools in various places for more than ten years, and they have cultivated learning. I don’t know how many of them are poor and they are all doing things in all walks of life, but their talents should not be buried! "
Ran Min gave him an appreciative look when he heard Xu machine throwing words.
In fact, Ran Min has long wanted to carry out the imperial examination system, but he has been forbearing for more than ten years because he has been running official schools in various places to attract a large number of poor brothers to enter school to confront the gentry.
Official learning is actually the basis of imperial examination system.
The system of selecting officials in Chinese dynasties has been changing all the time, but the core idea is "people"
In the Zhou Dynasty, the method of "selecting from the countryside" was that the local sages were selected by the "rural elders" (heads of families) and paid tribute to the central government by the local governors.
Gong to Wang Xianshi, the examination by Wang himself is archery.
In the pre-Zhou society, it was only possible for members of the ruling clique family to receive education, and the various components of state institutions were actually inherited by members of the ruling clique. The specific performance was the "Shi Qing Shi Lu" system in the Zhou Dynasty.
In this system, even if there is some kind of recommendation and selection, it is an extremely accidental exception that recommendation and selection go beyond the hereditary blood network and climb to the top.
By the Spring and Autumn Period, the system of "Qing Shilu" was seriously damaged, and more and more people who were not from the noble class were selected and promoted through recommendation and assessment.
The bureaucratic system gradually emerged from recommendation and assessment (promotion according to merit), and the social and economic development and the expansion of culture and education at that time accelerated this process.
In the Han dynasty, it was the procuratorial system to recruit talents from the people.
In the 11th year of Emperor Gaozu (197 BC), Liu Bang ordered ministers at all levels to recommend talented people to form the original form of rural tribute for later generations.
In the second year (the first 17 years) and the fifteenth year (the first 165 years), Emperor Wendi ordered officials at all levels to recommend "virtuous and upright people who can speak frankly and remonstrate extremely" and tested the recommended people by means of questioning. According to Dong Zhongshu’s suggestion, Emperor Wudi ordered each county and country to promote filial piety and honest officials, and later the two subjects gradually merged into one subject, which was called "filial piety".
In addition, "scholar" is also an important subject in the inspection. Filial piety focuses on virtue and scholar focuses on talent. In the Eastern Han Dynasty, Liu Xiu was avoided and changed to "Mao Cai"
All subjects in the Han Dynasty had to pass the imperial examination, but the important difference between the imperial examinations of the descendants of the Han Dynasty’s Chaju examination was that the basis of the main examination and the auxiliary examination recommended by Chaju was not the same. "Those who didn’t have any countermeasures at that time were all selected."
