To be translated into English:
鲁迅说：“不能说话的毛病，在明朝是还没有这样厉害的；他们还比较地能够说些要说的话。待到满洲人以异族入侵中国，讲历史的，尤其是讲宋末的事情的人被杀害了，讲时事的自然也被杀害了。所以，到乾隆年间，人民大家便更不敢用文章来说话了。”Arilang1234 20:47, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
The disability of speaking out is not as serious in Ming Dynasty as it is now. People at that time, relatively speaking, can say something they want to. But after the Manju, an alien, invaded China, those discussing the history, especially issues of the late Song Dynasty, were murdered, And naturally those talking about current issues were murdered as well. So when Emperor Qianlong came into power, people had become more afraid of talking in articles.
