Two Thousand Years of Democracy


Mankind today searching for a better way of life. Becoming enlightened by the sage of the Chinese people. Why and how this way of life has worked for so long. Why other old civilizations were ploughed under. Examining our belief that our ills are basically economic, transcending political and social factors. The Chinese sage that points to a different conclusion: that both political and economic good are merely the means and not the end to man's adventure, which is social contentment. A look at China's political history. Our present search for a good definition of democracy. Democracy as given to the Chinese people by Confucius. Sun Tzu's philosophy of war. Spiritual factors that have maintained democracy in China. The five Cardinal Virtues of the Chinese. The role of education. The Confucian ethic. A recognition of an absolute moral authority in human conduct.
