I hate the Communist Party chapter 167
The Qing Dynasty of 1900 was like an iron pot with a thick lid covered.
Something is boiling inside, but from the outside, there is only a little steaming, but it seems nothing special.
However, this was a story from the outside, and the perspectives of those who viewed the Qing Dynasty from the inside had to be different.
Especially for those who set foot in this land for missions and other purposes.
There were fewer people living in foreign settlements such as concessions, but foreigners living face-to-face in settlements such as the Blue Nara Lines outside the concessions were more sensitive to their changes.
[Recently, the eyes of the residents looking at the cathedral are not unusual. In the past, if there were feelings that I didn’t like it, it seems that I can feel a young gaze these days.]
[Some time ago, I was going around the cathedral at night, but when I went there, there was a noise near the statue, and I found several mysterious men trying to damage the statue with a hammer. When I shouted what I was doing now, I ran away, but it hasn’t happened until this time, but recently the atmosphere is getting strange enough to touch my skin.]
But even such people were addicted to optimism about what could happen beyond this.
I was wondering if they really did that, they would come with weapons and kill themselves.
In fact, their thoughts were grounded.
Since the last days, when they put pressure on the local government due to the appearance of the Western powers toward the Qing Dynasty, things have gone as far as they wished.
In that respect, the first thing I thought would be solved by asking the local government to increase the number of guards for religious facilities such as cathedrals and churches or facilities such as schools that they have built.
The second way of thinking was who was standing behind them and who would ever touch them.
If anything happened to their personalities, the Qing Dynasty would still be in their home country looking for a reason to eat something out of the Qing Dynasty, but the thought was that the Qing Dynasty government would watch out for the Qing Dynasty to touch us.
In recent years, the British, who cannot be said to be in good condition, feel a little more anxious than Westerners of other nationalities, but even they are concerned about unforeseen deaths such as an injustice lynch. I didn’t think anything bigger would happen after I moved to the area.
What they overlooked was that the amount of hatred and dissatisfaction built up against them among the Blue Narans was far greater than they expected and deeper like an abyss.
The Chinese thought that China was the center of the world was accepted for thousands of years as the truth that the sun rises in the east.
The fact that China is no longer the center of the world, has fallen into the outskirts of the world, and is nothing more than a prey to those who have been regarded as Western oranges so far, is because it was the same shock as the sun rose from the west for most Chinese people.
In addition, the buildings of Western oranges such as cathedrals and churches, which are increasing in number by the day for the Chinese, were the object of suspicion that they were trying to turn themselves into a complete colony through Christianity.
It was seen as a kind of aggression from the spiritual side, not just introducing their own culture and religion.
In addition, when they suddenly intervened in the last Sino-Japanese War and showed them again taking their rights and land, public opinion that the victory was stolen among the Chinese began.
Even though the North Sea Fleet lost all its power in the Battle of the Yellow Sea, they still had the South Sea Fleet–although there was little real power–and the Japanese military had not stepped into China, but it was the logic that the treaty was forcibly signed due to the interference of Western powers. .
In addition, the Chinese people, who heard that Japan’s treaty made the exploitation of Western powers worse, began to take the view that Japan was also a victim of Western imperialism.
Even though Japan shouted the entrance to the country and shouted that they had to hit other countries and grow in size before they were taken away, it was because they were in the same situation now.
Originally, people were easily immersed in people who were in tragedy like themselves.
When these social atmospheres and events overlapped, it was pseudo-religion that gained strength.
It was a kind of tradition that the pseudo-religion, which said what the people wanted to hear whenever Jungwon became confused, grew in power. In the past, Hwang Geon-jeok did it, and recently, as Taepyeong Heaven did.
[Look at what those western oranges are doing! Not only have they invaded our land, they are now trying to trample our heads too! The temples they build will serve as a resting place and bridgehead for the Western military, and the items in the masks of support items they give are virtually returning back what was taken from our barns. How is this different from the act of a torpedo who occupied someone else’s house and throws the leftovers of himself to the landlord? No, maybe it’s a poorer quality act. At least they won’t be convinced that they are showing mercy.]
In addition, unfounded rumors, such as that children who were playing near the church recently disappeared, that children who were on the street with their mother were kidnapped and taken away, and that children were trapped and eaten in the basement of the church played a role in lighting the fire of public sentiment. did.
As the situation got worse and worse, each of the great powers, who at first considered it as a temporary happening due to hostility toward the West, had to eat differently.
This is because, as long as they had eyes and ears, they could not know the slogans from the field.
[The atmosphere isn’t so good. It is said that the slogan’let’s kill the western orangca’ now comes out instead of’let’s drive out the western oranca’. There is news that there is even sporadic violence going on. It seems there is a need to get the Qing Dynasty government to do something.]
[We agree with this. Maybe we could make the situation worse now. Together, let’s ask Tae-Hoo Seo to do his best so that the situation can be settled.]
The Qing Dynasty’s government was concerned about excessive hostility toward the West that the boxers showed, and demanded some countermeasures, but Empress Seo, who currently dominates the Qing Dynasty, seemed to have a different idea.
[Don’t worry too much because you already know what your concerns are. The basic principle of the Qing Dynasty is that it does not condone pseudo-religion.]
Contrary to what the mighty ambassadors said before, Empress Seo showed only a lukewarm reaction whenever Han Chinese officials, including Lee Hong-Jang, said that the government had to take action against the boxers before it was too late.
[I admit that the slogans they are shouting are rough. But, then, should we take the lead and bring guns and swords at them? Are you saying I have to make my people bleed to protect the western oranges? The lords appease them and find a way to disperse them peacefully.]
After hearing Queen Seo’s words, the Han Chinese officials wanted to ask how they felt about these people, but they had no choice but to step out with the words that they would take orders every time.
They didn’t say what to use because they didn’t like boxers and Western powers.
It was simply because if the boxers were busy and doing anything, they would be worried about the aftermath that would come afterward.
In this situation, Empress Seo’s request to find a peaceful solution was like saying to solve an unanswered math problem.
As time passed without any other measures, the momentum of the boxers increased.
This was because the people began to accept that the Qing Dynasty actually tolerated the movement, seeing that it was not sanctioned by the government.
And finally that day of fate. Each farmer left the house with their own farm equipment.
Originally, they had to go out to the fields to harvest ramen, and they were gathering to the wrong place with well-ground sickles and pitchforks.
[Now rise up, compatriots! Their guns and cannons are useless in the face of the mysterious magic of our boxers! If you ignore the spells we tell you, the bullets shot by the Orangkae won’t harm your body, and if you learn the martial arts we use, you can easily defeat 100 or 1,000 Oranca! Join the boxers! Let’s defeat the oranges! Kill the oranges! I will give 50 silver coins to the one who killed one Western man, 40 silver coins to the one who killed one Western woman, and 30 silver coins to the one who killed a Western child!]
As a result of this poster on the Qing Dynasty as well as Shandong, the base of the Jinhuadan, a simultaneous attack on Westerners began throughout China.
“Kill everything! Don’t look at any circumstances!”
“Please, please save the child only! You can kill me, so please only children!”
“What does this traitor bitch say? Hey! Look what I do!”
“Ahhh! No way!”
Initially, local churches and cathedrals where Western troops were not stationed were targeted.
Not only missionaries and nuns, but also the Chinese who normally attended church could not escape their grasp.
As written on the poster, they faithfully began to kill Westerners.
“Construction! It’s a big deal! In the province… … !”
“Not just the fat! Citizens are currently flocking to enter the area where we are located. Despite the situation, the Qing Dynasty government is saying that they are in control and not taking proper measures!”
And this madness was soon affecting the capital Beijing as well.
Military troops for basic security were, of course, staying in the foreign district in Beijing, but as long as the situation was like this, there was no guarantee that they could solve it alone.
“From home country? What didn’t you say?”
“Well, that’s going to send the troops as soon as possible, but as long as it will take some time, first prepare as much as possible with the guards… … .”
“My youngest son could also say that. Oh my God, are you really saying that we have to stop those mobs with only dozens of troops?”
“First of all, I think we have to increase the number as much as possible with the support of adult men who know how to use firearms. If things get worse, you will have to borrow the power of women.”
One of the only good news came to them, who had somehow come up with measures to survive in a gloomy atmosphere.
“It’s a support force! Support troops have arrived!”
“What? Already? No, didn’t you say it would take some time in your home country?”
“It is Russia! We have sent reinforcements from Russia!”
It was Russia that moved the fastest in this chaos.
“Oh shit, I can even kiss Tsar’s ass right now.”
They weren’t the only ones smiling at the long-awaited good news.
Gojong, who was watching the situation of the Qing Dynasty on the Korean Peninsula, was also smiling without knowing why.
