Eastern Religious Philosophers Confucius believed that both the government and the people needed to have good morals. His entire idea was to live morally and correctly, both individually and in government. He believed that you should be loyal to your family- worship your ancestors, be proud of what your family did to earn your place, be proud of whatever they came from and respect your elders. He also believed that if you lived that way with your family, it was the best foundation for government to build on, instead of leaders preaching that they were saviors, and they needed to show loyalty and lead by example so that people would want to follow, not to have to follow. So I believe the best quote he gave us that represents his ideas would be: "He who exercises government by means of his virtue may be compared to the north polar star, which keeps its place and all the stars turn towards it." Lao Tzu's idea was that people could solve society's problems by focusing on themselves.
