Scholars for the Win!


In my opinion based on what we learned in class today, the scholars are the best to lead the government. This was also my role. I learned that scholars are the most trustworthy and least likely to be bribed because of their brains and they definitely know the history so that they won’t make the same mistake twice. Also they are taught philosophy so they know all about humans. Finally, they are the most fit to run a government based on past experience, tests, and knowledge.

Aristocrats and foreigners should definitely not lead the government. Aristocrats may often be greedy and easy to trick. Not to mention the corruption and lack of an education. Foreigners only want what’s best for them, not what’s best with us. Don’t trust them to run your government.

If I were the empress, obviously I’d choose scholars.  However, this reminds me of another time when I had to make a tough decision. I had to choose between two friends and I really didn’t want to. So I told them that, and then I left the argument. They were upset, but in the end, they both forgave and forgot.
