Beliefs

The followers of Confucianism belief that social harmony is the goal key to every follower of Confucianism. Confucians think that they need to help the poor and needed. Confucians also belief in respecting other religions and being tolerant.

They belief this because there leader was a very peaceful man and he was quoted on a lot including "Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself" althuogh this religion is like a philosophy it still has a lot of religious things.

Joining Confucianism

I think people would join this religion to find peace with others or they just wanted to have peace with this world and want to be at harmony with everyone. I would join this religion because it's more like a philosophy and they don't really have a god just a leader like Buddhism. This philosophy is very peaceful so they do a lot of meditation.

Extremist

Since Confucianism is all about peace and it's more of a belief system or a philosophy, there is no Extremist.

China thrives for Confucian schools

A current event in China is that there is a debate whether or not to put Confucian schools in the public. People belief believe that this would help the child focus and help everyone have a good society. kids have a higher standard of living and there parents want them to focus less on material thing and more on the spiritual things.
