Political philosophers like Confucius onward offered their understanding, analyses and prescription for implying social order. During the long and colorful history of China the notion for society and its development and relations has changing, but in some strange way kept its basic values, founded since ancient times. Even now, when China is the second world economy, the government initiates a program for control and social engineering over its subjects, that is nothing but reform of old Confucius idea for maintaining the social order using education and ethical conduct.
