Mr. Ba Jin made a request when he was seriously ill in his later years, hoping to keep himself in the final dignity, not to insert so many pipes on his body, to waste so many valuable drugs, and to leave the world in peace and tranquility. Of course, for various reasons, this wish has not been fulfilled.
Dignity is important to a person, and the final dignity is especially important.
In the old days of China, if he wanted to kill the king, no matter how much he sinned, whether he was captured, overthrown, or forced to step down, it is customary to use the methods of beheading, squatting, and delaying. He can only drink poisonous wine. To death with white cockroaches, I have to leave him a whole body, not to be in a different position. This is the ultimate dignity for him, and his last privilege. However, there are exceptions. During the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period, Wu Zixuan avenged his father and his brother. After bringing the soldiers out of the Chu, the whip corpse Chuping Wang was to destroy his last dignity. This fainting monarch, who listened to the rumors before his death, took his daughter to be a wife, and indiscriminately killed loyal ministers, brazen and shameless. There is no dignity in living, and it is harder than walking dead.
