Karina Santana October 20, 2010 The main question for the metropolitan exam of the civil service examination Hello my fellow secretaries, secretariat and emperor. This is Di Quin Shan, I am here to propose what I feel the main question for the civil service examination should be. I feel the question should deal with the rites. To our understanding we believe that by respecting and following the rites, then we will have the most purest authorities guiding the common people. We must make sure that there is no corruption within our people and in order to do this we must know where they stand. In Confucius, analects 33 of book 25 states," the master said, . ..a man may be wise enough to attain it, benevolent enough to keep it and may govern the people with dignity, but if he does not set them to work in accordance with the rites, he is still short of perfection".(Confucius, 136) following this quote my main question would be, Do you believe the rites is important in order to obtain perfection? If this question was presented to me I will certainly say yes.
