Confucianism is not a religion. It is sometimes characterized as a system of social and ethical philosophy and not always a religion. It originated in China. It was founded by the school of literati. It is a way of like taught by Confuius in the 6th-5th century BCE. Some holy books are the five classes, and four books. They believed in the five relationships for social harmony. They are Father-Son, Older brother-Younger brother, Husband-Wife, Ruler-Subject, Friend-Friend. Power and the right to rule belong to superiors over subordinates; that is, to older people over younger people, to men over women. Confucian practiced Filial Piety. This is when you respect your parents and elders. "While a father or mother is alive, a son shall not travel far." You have to have honestly, you have to work hard, and you have to have concern for others. The Filial Piety is the "Golden Rule." Confucius spread to a couple different places. Some of them are Korea, Japan, and South East Asia.
One major way that Confucianism affects people's daily lives is Filial Piety. It affects their daily lives because it makes them be very nice to their parents and elders and it makes them be honest all the time. This also makes them work hard and always do the right thing.
