i think chinese mysticism is one :P

this is the best summary i found of those tho:

Image

but you could argue confusiousism (sp?) is just rationalism, Taoism is Empiricism, and Legalism is Authoritarianism.

...well, roughly... the point is that it's the same stuff, just slightly differently represented

eastern and western philosophy are on about the same stuff, i'd rather stick to western though, cos it's hard to mix the 2. it's just like 2 different programming languages, they're the same, but you're better off getting more advanced in one than learning both.

you could probably actually put them on my graph :P

confuciousism - pragmatic, rationalist, wholistic.
taoism - faithful, empiricist, wholistic.
legalism - pragmatic, rationalist, modular.

Stuff... for the sake of brevity.
The social contact is a big part of everything too. We willingly give up things for safety and security. Like, I lose the right to murder you and you lose the right to murder me. Ideals sometimes go with that too.

yeah, society is a social contract between people at the end of the day, for mutual benefit.

.. i suppose the issue with the left, is that they reject the entire social contract, because they dont know enough to know there is a lot to to the world/society/reality.

so to them, they cant see why things cant be perfect. stuff seems very simple to them, but it's not practical to have a holistic society - it doesn't work to have everyone as generalists and be aware of everything because reality is too complex and the majority of people cant handle it.

see the republican / conservative way of doing things is inherently governmental, because it breaks things down into modules, where it's like "you're a policeman, you just do your job. other people will do the job of deciding what will be against the law." then you need everyone working together to achieve stuff on the grand scale. which requires governmental management.

The trailer doesn't do this movie justice so here's the opening scene instead.



And another good clip
