He had fancied that his position would pass from one generation to thousands of generation. He established a systematic official from the regional to the central government and he has the great right to control the whole country by himself.
Based on the law of ancient which online universities often teach in their ancient history courses, Qin absorbed other six states’ regulation and laws and made the unified law and put them into practice. He removed the former six states’ important officials to the inner China in order to control them well. He announced the folk can not collect weapons.
