Tales of Herding Gods - Chapter 1583
His attention was attracted by the little cutie from the dragon qilin's house, and only then did the dragon qilin let out a sigh of relief. Qin Mu probably wouldn't pursue the term old cult master anymore.
Qin Mu brought these little monsters that were like birds, birds, beasts, beasts, dragons, and not dragons to roam around the city and observe the local customs of Eternal Peace. With these little monsters to relieve boredom, it was quite easy.
A little fellow ran to his shoulder and looked at his ear holes curiously.
There were also two little fellows that hid in his hair, and they soon started fighting over this' bird nest '.
"Cult Master, the beast world has been developing very quickly these few years."
The dragon qilin accompanied him and said, "The Beast Realm is vast, and there are the most beasts behind the ancestral court. I helped Long Xiao build many god cities. The Primordial Realm, Xuandu, and Youdu also built quite a number of cities. Also…"
He hesitated for a moment and said, "I discussed with the emperor and used the method of reducing the number of soldiers and adding fuel to the fire to migrate some of the people of Eternal Peace to the back of the Primordial Realm. There, we built many god cities. They are called Little Eternal Peace."
When Qin Mu heard this, he let out a long sigh of relief.
Little Eternal Peace in the beast world was Eternal Peace's escape route.
'The plan to reduce the number of soldiers and spare resources can prevent the celestial heavens from detecting the decrease in the population of Eternal Peace. In addition, I can use the Life and Death Book to erase the traces of their existence. This way, I can let these people head to the beast world without anyone noticing and open up the second Eternal Peace.'
The dragon qilin said, "I also have quite a number of powers in the beast world, and I have been trying to open up the wisdom of the beast race in the past few years. Lan Yutian, the Blue Saint, has some disciples of the beast race, and they are all primordial behemoths. I was able to build Little Eternal Peace this time because of their help."
Qin Mu nodded his head, feeling gratified.
Lan Yutian imparted his teachings in the ancestral court, and many primordial beasts followed him. They gained sentience and knew how to cultivate, evolving into a new race, the beast race.
After the beast world was established, Qin Mu had the dragon qilin follow Long Xiao to the beast world. The beasts also followed the dragon qilin to the beast world. Qin Mu's goal was to let the dragon qilin run the beast world and establish another sphere of influence.
The Beast World was situated in the dark side of the thousands of worlds, and the environment was harsh. However, if war broke out, the Beast World would be the last pure land.
The fewer people who knew about this, the better. Therefore, Qin Mu had to send out the person he trusted the most to handle this matter. The dragon qilin hadn't appeared for so many years because he was managing this matter.
"The strong practitioners of the beast race and I used reverse summoning divine arts to summon the people of Eternal Peace to the beast world. Progress has been slow these few years because we still have to be wary of Long Xiao so that he won't know about it. Luckily, we made some progress."
The dragon qilin smiled. "When will Cult Master head to Little Eternal Peace of the beast world to take a look?"
Qin Mu said with a smile, "I'm at ease when you do things. Pi, in my heart, you have long become an existence that can take charge of a section."
The dragon qilin was overjoyed. He wanted to wag his tail, but his position in the beast world was second only to Long Xiao. Because of that, he became reserved.
Qin Mu touched his head, and the dragon qilin couldn't resist anymore. He wagged his tail twice in satisfaction.
Qin Mu roamed around the god city for a week and went to take a look at the vegetable market, market, primary school, and university. He spread out his consciousness and listened to the conversations of all the people in the god city to check on the situation.
"This god city is very good. Even though it has some flaws, it's mostly upwards."
Qin Mu suddenly said, "I've seen the god city, but how's the development below?"
He came to the side of the city and looked at the land below. There were also numerous villages and towns there.
The dragon qilin followed him to land. Qin Mu walked through the countryside and came to a town. He asked, "Do all children have names?"
The dragon qilin said, "They all gave their names. My surname is Long, and Yan'er's surname is Zhu. These little guys and boys follow my surname, and the girls follow her surname. Big brother was born early, so he's a boy. His name is Chang Li, the second girl is Hong Yu, and the third one is eloquent. He's called Tan Xuan…"
Qin Mu came to the city and saw that the people in the city were usually old people with children. However, there were very few young and strong people. He couldn't help frowning.
He came to the primary school in town and listened to a few lessons. His brows furrowed even more tightly.
The people in this town were not as well-dressed as the people in the god city. Their living conditions were also much worse than those in the god city, and their diet was the same.
What was even more terrifying was the primary school and college. The teachers that taught the children were all very ordinary divine arts practitioners. There weren't many talented people, so teaching the children was just passing by. Even the teachers didn't know much.
He went to ask the elder in the town, and the elder said, "The young people have all gone to the god city, to the mines, to the manufacturing factories, and to the lower capital after crossing the mountains. They might not even meet once or twice a year."
"In that case, primary schools and colleges in the countryside…"
"With fewer people, we can't continue with primary schools and colleges. Some of them have already closed down. Our town is bigger, so we can still continue with it. Those with some money at home have already gone to the city to seek knowledge, while those without money can only stay behind to learn some skills so that they won't starve to death."
Qin Mu stood in a daze in the dilapidated primary school and was slightly muddle-headed. He muttered, "Only a hundred years, only a hundred years…"
The dragon qilin said carefully, "Cult Master, their lives are much better than a hundred years ago."
Qin Mu shook his head and said, "This isn't what I want. Let's continue forward and take a look."
When he came to the village in the countryside, it was even more dilapidated. Qin Mu didn't stay for too long and directly asked where the primary schools in the village were.
"It has been closed for over a decade." Someone brought him to the ruins of the village primary school.
Qin Mu brought the dragon qilin down and shuttled through the countryside. Above their heads was a bright and beautiful god city that was flourishing to the extreme. Below them were dilapidated towns, leaving only the old and the young.
He walked past many cities and villages in Eternal Peace, but his brows never relaxed.
As the night deepened, Qin Mu stopped. The dragon qilin brought his little fellows to build a bonfire, and everyone sat beside it.
The dragon qilin said, "Cult Master, this is actually unavoidable. The development of the god city will definitely attract the young and strong. The young and strong will have a way out in the god city. They can contribute, seek knowledge, and have a greater chance of development. However, the god city doesn't need the elderly and children, so the old and the young can only stay in the village. This is justice, not fairness."
Qin Mu nodded and said, "I understand. I was the one who taught you the logic."
The dragon qilin let out a sigh of relief and said with a smile, "Since Cult Master understands this logic, you should know that the faster Eternal Peace develops, the more different classes will be created. Some people rely on their own abilities and talent to earn a lot of money, so that they can achieve meteoric success and take up a prominent position. Some people are a step behind, but they can still thrive and not worry about food, food, shelter, and transportation. There are also some people who, because they haven't become divine arts practitioners, can only stay in the countryside. Eternal Peace, learn to use what you can, and only by doing things can you achieve success. Isn't that the ideal of Cult Master?"
Qin Mu nodded his head. "I also understand. These principles were also taught to you by me."
"In that case, why is Cult Master frowning?"
The dragon qilin was puzzled. "The development of Eternal Peace over the past hundred years is all in accordance with your philosophy, and the people will use it according to the path of the saint. Why is Cult Master still worried?"
Qin Mu let out a shaky breath and said solemnly, "Everything can be done according to justice, except for education."
The dragon qilin was stunned, and he said, "There's no difference in Eternal Peace's education. No matter if it's a poor family or a rich family, the divine arts and ultimate arts that can be learned are all the best. Eternal Peace doesn't hold anything back. Isn't this fair?"
Qin Mu added firewood to the bonfire, and the flames shone on his face, making it dark and gloomy. "There are differences in aptitude, comprehension, and temperament. When one grows up, their achievements will be different, and their social class will be different. This is the right thing to do, but there can't be a hierarchy in education."
"Parents are slow-witted and are reduced to poor people, but children aren't necessarily slow-witted. If a child with outstanding talent is born in a poor family and can't receive good education because of poor family circumstances, wasting his talent and wisdom to become a common person, this is the greatest injustice. For him to become a common person because of poor family circumstances is fair, but not fair!"
"Everything in Eternal Peace is fine now, but it's not fair in terms of education. Education is divided, and in the long run, the poor will become poorer and have no chance of making a comeback. This is what makes my hair stand on end. Eternal Peace's reform going in this direction isn't what I want."
Qin Mu pondered over it and said, "The reform is to give people hope and not to solidify this kind of class. Among the three hundred and sixty halls of Heavenly Saint Cult, only there are no halls. After I became Heavenly Saint Cult Master, I established the halls. The students in the halls back then were all from poor families. Back then, I could still achieve this step, so why can't I do it today?"
He frowned. "The voices of the poor are low, and their voices are soft. Even if they complain loudly in the wilderness, the people in the divine city won't be able to hear them. However, someone has to speak up for them. It's not to seek a future for them, but to seek justice for their descendants. I'm Imperial Preceptor, the tallest person in the god city. If I don't say anything, hehe, who else will speak up for them?"
The dragon qilin frowned and pondered for a long time before saying, "I see Cult Master has something on his mind these days, and I'm afraid a great battle is coming. If we teach and reform now, it will definitely affect the interests of many people and cause the foundation of the upper echelons to be unstable."
Qin Mu fiddled with the bonfire and said solemnly, "If the celestial heavens wants to touch Youdu, they will then take Carefree Village, Eternal Peace, and restore the rule of half-gods, making people unable to resist. At this time, Eternal Peace's reform of education will indeed cause some chaos. However, what I want is not a temporary victory or defeat, but Eternal Peace's everlasting prosperity and undefeated victory! Now, the reform of education will allow us to prosper for a hundred thousand years. Otherwise, the upper echelons of today will be the ten Celestial Venerables of tomorrow. We can't ignore it."
He gave a low laugh. "Now, in the thousands of worlds and heavens, half-gods eat humans, which is why Eternal Peace wants to overthrow the rule of half-gods. If people eat humans in the future, that would be a joke! In this position, one should scheme for politics. I'm Imperial Preceptor, so I have to scheme for politics. The reform of education is imperative. I will submit a memorial to the emperor and let her promote Young Patriarch Wen Yuan to be in charge of this matter. Young Patriarch Wen Yuan has always been down-to-earth, but he has to travel in the countryside for a few years to see the situation in the countryside clearly."
The dragon qilin looked at him and suddenly said with a smile, "Cult Master is still the former cult master. Since this matter has been decided, Cult Master should make a trip to the worlds."
Qin Mu looked at him in astonishment.
The dragon qilin said with a smile, "The celestial heavens pushed forward the celestial coins to control the economy of the world. Back then, Cult Master decided on the strategy of forging a country. After a hundred years, Cult Master should take a look at the situation in the heavens and the myriad worlds."
Qin Mu gave it some thought and said, "Whether or not Eternal Peace will succeed will depend on the hearts of the people. Not only will it depend on the hearts of Eternal Peace's people, it will also depend on the hearts of the people of the thousands of worlds in the heavens. Alright, let us go to the thousands of worlds in the heavens!"
He stood up, and the little monsters in the dragon qilin's house were still sleeping. The tiny Earth Count made a shushing motion and gathered these little fellows up.
The dragon qilin opened his ears and let him carry these little fellows into his ears.
The two of them headed to the nearest god city. On the way, Qin Mu had already written his memorial. When they reached the god city, he immediately ordered people to hurry and send it to Eternal Peace's capital city.
Ling Yuxiu read through the memorials overnight. When she saw Qin Mu's memorial, she muttered to herself and ordered people to go to the ancestral court to invite Wen Yuan.
"The one who herds cows rarely comes back, but he didn't come to see me. He only sent a memorial up…"
She shook her head. The memorial not only talked about the reform of education, but also about Youdu. She asked people to find Celestial Venerable Ling, Celestial Venerable Yue, Lang Wo, and Founding Emperor.
Ling Yuxiu suppressed the thoughts in her heart and thought to herself, 'The battle of Youdu cannot be lost, or else Eternal Peace will be in danger!'
She immediately ordered people to search for the whereabouts of these Celestial Venerables and thought to herself, 'If the one that herds cows doesn't come back, where did he go?'
