Vox has a post titled “Confucius condemns neoliberalism.” It has some very clear and easy to understand Confucius quotes from here. Really nails the idea of what’s wrong with totalitarian thinking, and how you can achieved a well-ordered society. Great read, and short. Should be required reading in school.

The Vox is a national treasure. Other than being a soccer fan. Been reading him since he wrote for world net daily in early 2000’s.
I loved his research on why women shouldn’t be allowed to vote. If it hadn’t already been practiced for most of human history, one could say he was ahead of his time!
