Liu Bang, Emperor Gaozu of the Han Dynasty, was the founding emperor of the Han Dynasty. He defeated Xiang Yu, the overlord of Western Chu in the Chu-Han War, and unified the world after the fall of the Qin Dynasty. I don't understand and have no opinion on his military and political talents. What I want to talk about today is my personal opinion on his character.
I think he is a suspicious, narrow-minded, intolerant person, simply put, he is a villain. Suspiciousness was reflected in the fact that when he was attacking Chu, he kept asking his soldiers how Prime Minister Xiao was doing in the rear, because he knew that Xiao He was more capable than himself, and he was afraid that he would replace him in the rear. There is a saying in the ancients, "Don't doubt when you hire someone, but don't doubt someone. Since you appoint a person, don't doubt him. Like Liu Bang, you have appointed someone, but you still have doubts. This is not what a benevolent or gentleman would do." In addition, after the stability of the Western Han regime, his narrow-mindedness and inability to tolerate others were also reflected. He continued to crusade against kings with different surnames. was suppressed. Liu Bang firmly believes that one sentence is "the master of merit". Although these famous generals are Liu Bang's subordinates, but because the credit and reputation of these people are far greater than Liu Bang, Liu Bang wants to kill the grass and roots. These three famous generals not only died, their Later generations were also persecuted.
Liu Bang is not only vicious to others, but also to his own children. Just judging from the fact that he pushed his children out of the car many times while escaping, it can be seen that his nature is bad. Animals will choose to sacrifice themselves to protect their children when they are in danger, but Liu Bang is ruthless in sacrificing his children to protect himself. The degree of cruelty is enough to see. In addition, it can be seen from the fact that he was able to pick up the child many times after he pushed the child out of the car, and it was not at all to the point where the pursuers were about to catch up.
How can a person who is so cruel to heroes and can even discard his own flesh and blood be called a hero and benevolent monarch!
