As the most insignificant existence in the Warring States, why can South Korea rank alongside the seven warring States?

Similar to this question, there are many people put forward on the Internet.Some people have also asked why yan, the land of bitter cold, can be listed as one of the seven warring States.It is not for these states to decide whether to be included in the seven Warring States period, but for later scholars to judge.Of course, these judgments are valid.Whether South Korea can be considered as one of the seven warring States powers depends not on how many wars it wins or how much territory it controls, but whether it meets this criterion.As an important period in Chinese history, the Eastern Zhou Dynasty is more commonly known as the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period.But it wasn’t exactly a parallel period.The eastern Zhou dynasty began in 770 BC and ended in 256 BC.The spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period ended in 251 BC.The reason why the Spring and Autumn period and the Warring States Period lasted longer than the Eastern Zhou period is that after the eastern Zhou period was destroyed, there was a long period of “warring States infighting” before qin united the six states.In this warring states war, the existence of South Korea is inevitable.The Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period are not national titles, but academic titles.This title is different from zhou, Qin, Han, Tang and other states, with a strong political color.The so-called Spring and Autumn period, the academic community generally acknowledged that the name is because of lu annals annals book “Spring and Autumn” named.Of course, the reason why The Spring and Autumn Annals is so influential is because it was written by Confucius.As for warring States, the name originates from the Strategy of warring States written by Liu Xiang, a scholar in the Western Han Dynasty.The name “Strategy of the Warring States” sounds as if it is a history book of a different country.However, it was not Liu Xiang alone who made “Strategies of the Warring States” into a book.He assembled a large number of previous historical books on the basis of “synthesis” such a historical book.Moreover, the strategy of the Warring States synthesized by Liu Xiang is not a complete strategy of the Warring States.Like many other works in Chinese history, after the completion of the original “Strategy of the Warring States,” many others added to it.Why South Korea is the “seven” said the “Spring and Autumn and warring States” origin, we can talk about the seemingly “weak” South Korea, why can be included in the “seven” one.In fact, the reason is very simple, because Liu Xiang included him in the “seven warring States”.Of course, as a scholar, he would not without reason so defined, he had his reason: ten thousand by seven countries, five thousand by five, enemy battle for power, cover for the warring states.Liu Xiang did not explicitly pronounce the term seven warring States, but his phrase “seven kingdoms of ten thousand multiplies” became the beginning of the seven Warring States.In fact, Sima Qian, who was before Liu Xiang, also said something similar in Shiji: The warring States Period was crowned with seven kingdoms, while The Three Kingdoms border the Xiongnu.We don’t have to pay attention to the last one, but the first one is important.It is “Guan Dai Warring States Seven”.”Guan dai” is the ancient scholar above the costume, here has the meaning of “leading”.That is to say, among the warring States, there are seven leading states, namely, the so-called “seven states with crown and belt”, namely, the “seven masters of the Warring States period”, they are qin, Chu, Qi, Yan, Zhao, Wei and Han.However, Sima Qian did not explain why the seven countries were leading the way until Liu Xiang explicitly said that the seven countries were leading the way because they could reach the kingdom of ten thousand chariots.”Multiply” refers to the basic organization of the ancient army. In the early days, only the King of Zhou could be “wan Multiply”, and other vassal states could only be “qian multiply”.Later, the power of the King of Zhou declined, the rise of the vassal states.Thus came the seven kingdoms of multiplicity.Since Korea has attained manseongsa, it is natural to be included in the seven.As for its insignificance and weakness, it is only compared with other countries, and South Korea in the eyes of the hindeyes.After all, in those days, there was a saying, “The world is strong crossbow, out of Korea.”In this sentence, we can see the influence of Korea and the power of Korea at that time.South Korea is not weak enough to survive the chaos, and survive to the end.This in itself is a proof of power, even though Han was the first of the seven kingdoms to be destroyed by Qin, it was later than those “warring States”.South Korea, “lost by geography, won by geography”.Because of its geographical factors, it became a country that all countries had to annex.It was bordered on all sides, so it could not avoid being attacked on all sides.At the same time, Korea is located in the location of “iron ore”.It was a treasure at that time, and in the Bronze Age, being able to produce iron ore itself was a sign of technology and combat effectiveness.It is also why South Korea is able to produce advanced military equipment and use it to compete with other countries: the world’s most powerful crossbows come from South Korea.Xi Zi, little house when the force, from the newcomer, all shot 600 steps away.Han Zu exceeded foot and shot, 100 endless, far including hole chest, near dysprosium yen heart.All the swords and berberies of Han fu came from Mingshan, Tangxi, Moyang, Condolence, Deng Shi, Wan Feng, Longyuan and Tai ‘a. They all cut down the oxen and horses on land and the wild geese in water. When the enemy was dead, they cut down the iron curtain and made the fu fu fu.With the courage of han Zu, was infirm armor, metatarsou crossbow, with a sword, one when a hundred, not enough to say also.”South Korea has survived the storm.Is often in the “national crisis” occasion, to look for a chip to rely on.”Iron diplomacy” is an important means of South Korea’s foreign policy.There were many strategists in the Warring States. It was these strategists who promoted the wars between the Warring States.Driven by the situation and encouraged by its strategists, South Korea cannot be immune.Although it is the “weak of the seven”, it is not willing to lag behind in numerous “international actions”.It saved the state of Lu, destroyed the state of Zheng, attacked the state of Song and defeated the state of Chu.It shows a fighting power that no small country can match.Moreover, Korea is not sitting on its laurels.In the Warring States Period, when reform flourished, every country had reform.Although it was qin that finally unified the six states, each state was once strong because of its reforms.During the reign of Emperor Zhao of Han, Shen Buhai was appointed to reform the law, make great efforts to govern, reorganize the military, and strengthen the centralized rule. As a result, the Power of South Korea was promoted rapidly, and no one invaded the country for a while.However, it is a pity that Shen Buhai’s reform was also “political interest after death”. After his death, South Korea could not continue his reform achievements.Conclusion Korea can be included in the warring States seven, there is a natural reason.It meets the standard of “The Kingdom of Ten thousand Multiplies” and there is no reason why it should not be included in the seven warring States period.Moreover, Korea’s weakness, the humble, is only with the warring States seven other powers compared with the “humble”, but if compared with those warring states, Korea is also a “strong” existence.
