Confucianism and Daoism were not incompatible, lots of Chinese Emperors practiced both. The notion of Daoism as anarchic libertarianism is a product of Ursula Le Guinn.

So that’s who I’ve to blame? I thought she merely wrote SF.

Also, it’s Le Guin. One “N”, not two.

My ideal form of government is a supranational technocratic world-state with elements of a constitutional participatory democracy and a mixed economic system with slightly market socialist leanings. The legislature would be bicameral and consist of a lower house comprised of randomly-selected citizens, and a upper house structured in a vaguely corporatist form. The executive branch would be ran by a directorial council of "philosopher-monarchs/scholar-officials" who have achieved the highest rankings in the civil service. Socially, a civic religion inspired by Mohist thought would be prevalent so as to ensure brotherhood and unity.

Pretty much. If it left the anti Semitism and Holocaust revisionism at the door it would be better.
It makes occasional good points about some of the logical inconsistencies in leftist dogma, but at the same time hurts its cause more than helps with some of the stuff it goes on.

eh, chinese kin associations provided good welfare for members before the imperial state killed it

confucianism with legalist characteristics™ is the actual "confucianism" most westerners (as well as easterners) are exposed to as a political philosophy (and probably the only confucianism that is a political philosophy); OG confucianism was pretty overlapping in respecting "organic and natural" stuff but probably talked more of the everyday-relatable aspects

that said, they also co-use parables and corresponding conclusions regarding intentionally done good, relating back to my initial comment

Progress is the ultimate goal of humanity, to better the collective situation. The best part of capitalism is the Marketplace of Ideas. The old ways were abandoned for a reason, they were inferior to the new ones.
