Liberty Occidental and Oriental
Custom has often been invoked both in the East and in the West to oppose and limit the power of tyrants, and to defend or to secure civil or political liberty. Buddha and Confucius were both concerned mainly with individual freedom. Confucius’s theory of society, in particular, was very individualistic; he clearly formulated for the first time in recorded history that principle of ‘reciprocity’, the ‘golden rule’ for any liberal society.
From Joshua.
