Despite Li's concerted efforts to build up China's military defenses in the form of a modern army, navy, forts, arsenals, docks, and military academies, he was a realist, although an arrogant one, and recognized that he was bucking a conservative, self-seeking system that was innately opposed to anything Western or anything that involved change.
