Tag: Five Virtues of Confucius: Humanity-Justice-Etiquette-Wisdom-Trust 儒家五常:仁義禮智信

The five Confucian virtues system theory of Humanity, Justice, Etiquette, Wisdom and Trust(仁義禮智信)and the five elements system theory of Wood, Metal, Fire, Water and Earth (木金火水土) in Taoism, are employed to correlate with the modern four independent power systems of executive, legislative, judicial, and the media (執法,立法,司法,媒體)in the governance of modern societies. The imbalance between the five Confucian virtues in modern societies requires corresponding regulations of some of the five sub-systems to regain the balance.
