It's this dissonance that makes it hard for people to understand each other East and West.

Well I guess being unnatural is better than the alternative, however, I isn't really suitable to designate an unharmonious mean to achieve a harmonious result. The means to get to the ends seems unusual. Maybe it's an internal dissonance for me, since I envision harmony as a flowing concept. They did base their philosophies from Kongzi's works, but gave their own unique flair.

Quite! Mencius was a Confucian scholar, but the tones of his writings differ greatly. ^^ No longer do we see the despotism of the patriarch, but something more free-flowing and egalitarian. This culminates in the ancient Chinese classic Liao Fan's Four Lessons, where we see Taoism, Buddhism, Confucius and Mencius all interwoven together for something rather beautiful and definitive of the entire Chinese outlook on good life, morality and sound governance.

Here's why I prefer strength over brains- beating a computer at chess is hard, but beating a computer at kickboxing is something anyone can do.
Violence isn't the answer. It's a question and the answer is yes.

Someday, I shall meet Lian and learn the ways of Chinese martial arts, or die trying. More likely the latter, admittedly.
