 Zhuang 012
The Zhuang had apparently tested the limits of their powers in the Song era with the rising of Nong Zhigao and were willing to live within the administrative purview of the Chinese central government, providing that it was sufficiently loose to permit the clan heads to continue their local control.

 Zhuang Introduction
If we also accept that they can be regarded as one people with the Zhuang, as many agree, then it is probable that this ethnic group is, after the Kurds, the largest of the world's peoples who are not currently organized into their own national state.
The question, then, of when precisely it is permissible to refer to a Zhuang people is a complex one which easily leads to many confusing qualifications as one tries to follow the evolution of the ethnic group over a long period.
I do believe, however, that there is a sort of mainstream of Zhuang evolution, and that stream arises in the neolithic and flows to the present, though with many branches, channels, and rivulets which eventually dry in the heat of the Han intrusion into the area.

However, the Confucian ideal of freedom is based on the internalization of standards and constraints, whereas Zhuang Zi's notion of freedom involves wandering between constraints out of an awareness of the relativity of all standards.
