Confucianism and Hope

The Bible says we should always be prepared to give an answer for the hope we have in Christ.

If a Confucian were asked what he hopes in, maybe it would be that moral leaders would lead the people into prosperity and harmony. Everyone should follow the way and live a life of self-transformation, but there is a lot of emphasis in Confucianism on providing advice to the ruler and a heavy reliance on the ruler to affect change.

One person in Michael Moore's movie, Sicko, said that people who have lost hope are easier to control.

Confucianism can give us better leaders.

Confucianism can revive our hope.
