Prime Minister Zhuge Liang, Sima Yi or Lu Xun?

Unread postby Starscream » Thu Feb 01, 2007 3:05 pm

If you are the emperor, who would you select to be Prime Minister of your country? Basically, the prime minister will be a key personnel in the imperial court that perhaps is only second to the emperor. He is an influential figure that can control the military, give advice to education of princes and so on.

Based on the ability, leadership, personality, loyalty and ambition or other factors, who would you choose to be your prime minister?

The names "Zhou Yu", "Lu Kang", "Jia Xu", "Pang Tong", "Bu Zhi", etc.... all other names except for "Lu Xun", "Zhuge Liang" and "Sima Yi" will not be considered... hehehee... I'm just joking. Try choosing one out of the three first, then suggest the other choice that you're dying to mention.

Have fun. :D

Zhuge liang or lu xun.... lu xun cares more about the people than attacking the north like zhuge liang does... I mean zhuge liang is talented but I rather have a person who can win the support of the people for me and outlast my kingdom. I want to mention prime minister bu zhi since he recommends alot of talented people for the emperor to trust... even more than zhuge liang.....

I would choose Zhuge Liang because he is an unparallel genius. You can't trust Sima Yi and Lu Xun just isn't up to the challange.

I'd have them in office in the order of ZL, LX & then SY purely due to their lifespans to get max coverage. :lol:

Lu Xun, if only because he's got a son who's actually worthy and who isn't going to overthrow me. :lol:

I would probably go with ZL to help me run my country. Keep in mind that he would not necessary have to try and conquer another country that is 2 or 3 times stronger than my country. He just have to oversee the goverment operation, offer sound advices, and mentoring my children. With these job duties I don't think you can ask for a better person than ZL. Lu Xun might be close, but I don't think he can top ZL. As for Sima Yi, he might be good but there is nothing to suggest that he can do a better job than ZL or Lu Xun. Plus trusting him might be an issue considering what we know. :lol:

Prime Minister is primarily a civil administration job so the choice is obvious. Zhuge Liang by miles.

Lu Xun. But Cao Cao would be a better Prime Minister than all three combined, imo :)
There's no trick to it. I'm not using an orbment, it's not magic...and I'm not using an artifact, either. I just will fire to appear, and it does.
