evil overlord Lord Shang

Lord Shang would be an interesting model for an Evil Overlord.

For one thing, he was all for stern laws, strict punishment of minor offenses, encouraging people to inform on each other, etc. And blamed the destruction of the state on the "lice" which include sophistry, but also, on one hand, music and beauty, and reading the Odes, and on the other, brotherly loyalty, caring for the aged, and reading the Histories.
