Was Wang Mang a visionary, or a murderous villain – or both? (Wang Mang art italkcafe.com, The Analects of Confucius; Deriv)

Some saw Wang Mang as an evil usurper – others a selfless visionary. Either way, an emperor lay dead, and a learned Confucian scholar sought to bring peace and harmony, but the dynasty would descend into chaos and bloodshed. This was the rise and fall of Wang Mang and the Xin Dynasty; a legacy that lasted only one man’s lifetime.
