Chen Shou's SGZ wrote:Jiang Wei was unrefined in letters and strategy. His ambition was to establish his works and reputation, and he manipulated the masses and went forth [on campaigns]. Good judgement was not obtained, and in the end, it led to his downfall. The Laozi says, "Governing a large state is like cooking a small fish." How could he be so petty in all aspects and cause so much chaos?
I find that I agree with this statement greatly. Do you agree with Chen Shou?
