Terdengar pepatah umumnya menyedihkan ‘Bagaimana membawakan sehingga masyarakat mau menerima'.
Konghucu menghadapinya dengan pepatah ‘Mengangkat secara langsung kerugian berbagai kekeliruan, selanjutnya masyarakat dapat menerima.
Mengangkat kekeliruan yang menyebabkan berbagai kerugian secara langsung, selanjutnya masyarakat tidak mau menerima'.

Kongzi menjawab : "Angkatlah orang yang jujur dan singkirkanlah orang yang curang; dengan demikian niscaya rakyat menurut. Kalau diangkat orang-orang yang curang dan disingkirkan orang yang jujur, niscaya rakyat tidak mau menurut".
