At the turn-point of Qing Dynasty destroyed Ming Dynasty, which named as the
time “just like 10000 miles mountains are shaking to the ground when they are
supported only by a thread”. From questions of the reasons the Ming-dynasty’s perish,
Huang Tsung-hsi criticized that the intellectual sprits had fallen, the politics had rotted
and people had despaired. He thought that a pre-dynasty intellectual should not take the
death for pre-Ming dynasty as the only road to show their respects, they should take
Yan Zi-ling as their moral model, live proudly, and write foreseeing works to educate
good moral courage and such kinds of intellectuals.
