Love me, love my dog

ai4 wu1 ji2 wu1

Explanation
由于爱那个人,因而连他家屋上的乌鸦都不以为不祥,不觉得讨厌了。这句成语,一向被人们用作推爱的比喻。

The Story
  商朝末期,商纣王对待人民十分的残暴,老百姓对他非常不满。终于,他的部下姬昌开始起兵反抗,经过多年的战争,在名将的辅佐下,姬昌的儿子姬发,也就是后来的周武王成功地讨伐了暴政的商纣王,率兵消灭了商朝,并建立了周朝。在周朝建立以后,面对前朝的遗臣,周武王仍然感觉到国家不够太平(peace),危机重重。有一天他问他的谋臣姜太公说:“我们打败了商纣王,灭了商朝建立周朝,但商朝遗留下很多官员,我们应该怎样处置他们呢?”姜太公说:“我以前曾经听人说过这样的事:如果喜欢某个人,就会连同喜欢停留在他家房上的乌鸦;如果讨厌某个人,就会连同讨厌他家的墙壁和围墙。商纣王暴政所以我们讨伐他,他的臣子也应当全部处死。”

  武王听了姜太公的意见,觉得把前朝的臣子全部都处死,未免太残忍了,况且这些官员有好有坏。于是他又召见召公,向召公问了同样的问题。召公回答说:“我曾听人说:有些贪官污吏欺压老百姓,跟着商纣王一起压榨人民,他们是商纣王的帮凶,对于这种人,一定要处死他们。但是也有些官吏,公正廉洁,明察秋毫,善待百姓,对于这些人,我们非但不应该杀他们,还要让他们好好地活下去。对于这些前朝遗留下来的官员,我们必须区分有罪和无罪的,把好的和坏的全都分开来。对于坏的官员,要全部处以死刑,不留一个。”

  周武王听了这番话,感觉还是不满意。最后,他就去询问周公这个问题。周公说:“我认为应该把前朝的官员都放了,让他们回到自己的家乡,在自己的家里劳动,以此来教化他们,让他们甘心顺从大王的统治。在这些官吏中有不少大王自己的老部下和亲朋好友, 大王也不能包庇他们,同样让他们回家劳动。然后通过施仁政来使全国的老百姓受到感化(influence)。”

  武王听到这番话非常高兴,觉得周公所说的正好符合自己的心意,于是就照周公所说的办法去治理国家,国家很快就安定下来。
