"Han Xu Shen <<Shuowenjiezi>> For the" public "explanation is the" split of from eight from the Si. eight still back it. "These views, with a strong equal the color. ancient peasant uprising, the slogan is the pursuit of equality, such as "spreading the wealth", "and equal", etc. in a special historical period, this narrow concept of equality has a certain legitimacy, but did not rise to jurisdiction of the sense of equal rights to know, certainly have irreparable defects.
