My Thoughts on Confucianism

I find the system of Confucianism very interesting. I believe there’s a lot of good to come from many of the beliefs. It seemed to me, that Confucianism was the early Chinese guidelines of ethics. The guidelines that stood out to me most were ren and xin. Ren means humaneness and xin means integrity.

I think that everybody should possess a humane heart. It is important to show compassion towards everything in life; from our fellow humans, to our wildlife. Without our humaneness, we are non-human. Most of us were born with a good since of humaneness, but some of us sadly tend to forget it over time.

Integrity is also equally important. Without integrity we are a society without consistency. Integrity should be taught from a young age, because one day our youth will be running our country, and we definitely don’t need any more hypocrisy in The United States of America.

I don’t think that I completely understand all things of Confucianism, that would probably take years of study, but I do understand these teachings that I have wrote about. That is why I say that I believe there are some good things to come from the teachings of Confucianism. bdbbbdbdbdbvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv- vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv- vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv- vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv- vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv- vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv- vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv- vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv- vvvvvvvvv ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff- ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff- ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff-...
