Realizing This Is A Wuxia World After Cultivating For 300 Years
Chapter 76 - Attempting to Oppress With Power
cree clearly says…”
“Isnt it up to me to decide what to write on the edict?” Jiang Wanshan immediately laughed when he heard this. He picked up a pen and directly crossed out Cui Hengs name on it.
Then, he smiled and said, “A small county magistrate is not like us. Hes just a dog. How can he enjoy such a reward?
Dont worry, Nephew. As long as the thing bestowed is real, there wont be a problem.”
“You can even do that?” Wang Jinsheng was a little stunned.
He usually felt that he was already very arrogant, but he did not expect that he was still so far away from true arrogance.
He could actually rewrite the Emperors edict so easily.
It was as if he had just corrected a misspelled word!
“Jinsheng, theres no need to be surprised.” Wang Qingquan patted Wang Jinshengs shoulder gently and said with a smile, “The Great Jin was established with the support of our preeminent families, so we naturally have the right to exercise our authority.
As long as you dont fabricate an Emperors edict out of thin air, its fine as long as you show consideration for the Emperors face on the surface. Dont you think so, Lord Jiang?”
“Hahaha.” Jiang Wanshan also laughed when he heard this. He said to Wang Jinsheng as if he was hinting at something, “As a mere Secretariat, I really dont dare to fabricate an edict out of thin air.”
In other words, it was not necessarily the same for a higher-level official, namely a true Prime Minister.
For example, Wang Jinshengs father, the former Prime Minister Wang.
“Thank you, Uncle Jiang!”
Wang Jinsheng bowed and thanked him, pretending not to hear Jiang Wanshans words.
Now, he was only feeling extremely happy in his heart.
After all, these bestowments were originally for Cui Heng, but now, he had intercepted them.
This made him feel like he had gotten his revenge. He felt so good that he wanted to dance around.
So what if youve won the hearts of the people in Lu County?!
So what if you have a top expert by your side?!
“Compared to a preeminent family like mine, youre just an ant thats only worthy of being casually manipulated. You didnt even know that you had been rewarded before it was snatched away by me!”
Wang Jinshengs face flushed red with excitement. He even wanted to jump in front of Cui Heng and mock him to vent his grievance and anger.
“Lord Jiang, actually, Cui Heng deserved that reward.” At this moment, Wang Qingquan suddenly said with a smile.
“Oh, what do you mean?” Jiang Wanshan asked with interest.
“Its like this. Cui Heng is in Lu County City…” Wang Qingquan briefly explained how Cui Heng targeted the businesses of the sects and aristocratic families.
“Theres actually such a thing?” Jiang Wanshans gaze turned cold as he sneered, “These bumpkins are really becoming more and more restless.”
“Thats right. A mere county governor actually dares to touch our assets in Lu County!” Wang Qingquan nodded in agreement. “Hes simply courting death!”
“Lord Jiang, shouldnt we think of a way to deal with him?” Sun Liansheng said with a fawning expression, “Otherwise, that county governor will probably push his luck. Hes only taking a fancy to our assets in Lu County City now. In the future, it might even be the entire Lu County.”
“Yes, we cant leave this fellow alone.”
Jiang Wanshan nodded and revealed a ruthless expression. “Killing him directly is the best way, but that is too easy on him. Since he dares to use the businesses of our aristocratic families to exchange for the hearts of the people, Ill make him lose the hearts of the people and let him be cursed to death by the people!
After returning to the capital, I will report to His Majesty that Lu County is adjacent to the Hong River and is at the center of Fengzhous waterway. It should have become a major trading city, but its current development is far from reaching that level. It can be seen that the county governors ability to govern is not good.
Moreover, the county governor deprived the businesses of generations of merchants for no reason and handed them over to ordinary people to manage. This greatly affected the merchants enthusiasm and made it impossible for the people to farm and produce food in peace. Its a loss for the country and a disaster for the world!
This is all because of the county governors incompetence in governing. His Majesty should draft an edict to reform the city. The taxes for ordinary people operating shops must increase by 50%, while merchants who have been running businesses for generations will receive a 50% reduction in taxes. This way, the trade in Lu County can recover and the people can farm in peace. Its the best of both worlds.
At that time, I will personally go to Lu County to implement the decree. What do you think?”
