Treasure of Wisdom: Interpretation of Zhuge Liang's Art of War will lead to the sixth disadvantage

A gentleman should do something and not do something. Positive and positive people should be diligent, and negative people should try their best to avoid it.

----Zhuge Changqing

The original text: There are eight disadvantages in the way of being a general: one is greedy and insatiable, the other is jealous of talent, the third is trusting and slandering, the fourth is not expecting, the fifth is hesitating and not self-determination, the sixth is indulging in wine and lust, the seventh is deceitful and self-conscious, and the eighth is cunning but not polite.

As a general, there are eight disadvantages, which are the chief taboo of the general in military use: first, the need for money and goods is never satisfied, and greed is insatiable; The second is strong jealousy of virtuous and talented people; The third is to listen to slander and get close to the glib and flattering villains; Fourth, we can only analyze the situation of the enemy, but can't correctly understand our own strength; Fifth, hesitating in case of trouble; Sixth, indulging in wine and sex; Seventh, he is hypocritical and treacherous while he is cowardly; Eight is cunning, clever and arrogant, and does not follow the system.

Analysis: This article points out the "eight evils" that should be avoided by the general. These "eight disadvantages" and the "fifteen disadvantages" mentioned in Sun Bin's Art of War have the same advantages, but they are more general, more refined and prominent, and are the inheritance and development of Sun Bin's art of war.

The "eight evils" are to the point, so anyone who wants to achieve something should take Zhuge Liang's "eight evils" as a warning and discipline. Any one of these eight evils is extremely harmful, and committing any one will lead to failure or even total annihilation, while individuals will be ruined and even killed.

Example: Emperor Taizong of the Song Dynasty warned officials to be cautious in punishment

In ancient times, because corporal punishment was allowed by law, torture often became the main means of obtaining confessions. "What can we do to beat Chu?" The case handlers rely too much on the results of torture, resulting in an endless stream of unjust, false and wrong cases. Some wise rulers, aware of the harm of indiscriminate punishment, came up with various ways to try to put an end to the law-enforcement officials. According to the records of the Song History of Taizong, Zhao Guangyi, Emperor Taizong of the Song Dynasty, once designed to warn the lower officials of handling cases, explaining the harm of abuse of torture and the necessity of careful punishment with living facts.

During the Xingping period of the Song Dynasty, there were many beggars in the streets of Bianliang, Kyoto. They often acted recklessly and became a scourge for the people. Once, an evil beggar came to the door of a big family and asked for a reward. His attitude was very aggressive. Because the requirements were not met, they began to shout loudly and scold endlessly. There were many onlookers, and everyone was a little indignant. Because they were afraid that the evil beggars would invite their partners to retaliate, everyone dared not speak up. At this moment, an officer came from behind the crowd. Seeing the scene, he jumped out of the crowd, drew out his sabre, and waved to stab the beggar to death. After killing, the officer put his knife on the ground and walked away as if nothing had happened. Seeing that the man was so fierce, no one dared to come forward and catch him.

The soldiers patrolling in the street reported the matter to the government. The government could not catch the murderer, so it decided that the big family was guilty of murder, and recorded the knife left by the officer as dirt along with the criminal's confession. Later, the case was reported to the court, and Zhao Guangyi, Emperor Taizong of the Song Dynasty, tried it in person. The criminal said, "Do you plead guilty?" The criminal said, "I plead guilty, He said to the official, "This is my sword, and that man was also killed by me. Why do you wronged the good man? It can be seen from this that under severe punishment, there is no one who does not bend to the sword and resort to punishment? It seems that it is not necessarily in the era of chaos to create unjust prison." So he ordered the release of the rich man, and told the law enforcement yamen: "From today on, we must be careful when trying the case again, and we must not be disorderly."
