But Chongzhen's policy doesn't care about
these things at all. In his concept, no matter what kind of livelihood project the people in the world have, he must obey his ambition. His purpose of reform is to make money and level the Liao Dynasty. Of course, some people may say that the highest national economy and people's livelihood is to transform Chongzhen's money for anti-corruption into national defense expenditure. That's right. What's wrong is that the corrupt money in the post station
was originally the wealth of people everywhere. Now it's converted into national defense expenditure. In fact, it's to turn illegal corruption into legitimate military pay. That is to say, it violates the basic principle that the reform is not only beneficial to the world, but also to the people, and also obliterates the enthusiasm of bureaucratic groups and ordinary people. No matter what kind of reform, as long as the enthusiasm is eliminated, there are only two possibilities in the end: either to increase expenditure in another way, or to delay work. This kind of reform must be a case in the opposite direction.
