Confucius' social philosophy was majorly based on the proposition of "ren" or "loving others" while still enforcing self-discipline. He once said "What you do not wish for yourself, do not do to others." By saying this he is implying that you should do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Confucius inforcd kindness and respect for others. Following through with his beliefs on self discipline he believe that as a leader he should exercise self- discipline in order to stay unpretentious to his advocates with kindness. A leader could influence their patrons to obey the law by showing them goodness and the coming together of

Dr. Warren, I am so embarrassed and taken back by the blunder on my behalf. I feel like I have to explain myself to you. You are correct, it was an oversight on my behalf I thought I submitted the right assignment. As you can see from my previous grades this truly isn’t in my character to make such a huge slip-up.

Rather than assuming the good in men and providing adequate education for all who are willing to serve the state in the case of Confucianism, and instead of encouraging withdrawal from hierarchical structure into nature like Daoism, Legalism makes use of strict legal codes and enforcement of such codes to dispel the evil of human nature.

Here are a few lines taken from the letter: "Hence the richest treasure that you may covet would be the treasure of good deeds. Keep your desires under control and deny yourself that which you have been prohibited from, for, by such abstinence alone, you will be able to distinguish between what is good to them and what is not. Develop in your heart the feeling of love for your people and let it be the source of kindliness and blessing to them. Do not behave with them like a barbarian, and do not appropriate to yourself that which belongs to them. Remember that the citizens of the state are of two categories. They are either your brethren in religion or your brethren in kind. They are subject to infirmities and liable to commit mistakes. Do not say: “I am your overlord and dictator, and that you should, therefore, bow to my commands”, as that will corrupt your heart, weaken your faith in religion and create disorder in the state. Should you be elated by power, ever feel in your mind the slightest symptoms of pride and arrogance, then look at the power and majesty of the Divine governance of the Universe over which you have absolutely no control." source citation Nahjul Balagha book
