Q: How did Chinese people develop their country?

A: Since ancient times the Chinese people have developed their country through studying the nature of things to acquire knowledge, correcting thoughts with sincerity, cultivating the moral self, regulating the family, governing the state and safeguarding peace under Heaven. As we see it today, the principles of “studying the nature of things, correcting thoughts with sincerity and cultivating the moral self” are for individuals; the principle of “regulating the family” is for the society; and those of “governing the state and safeguarding peace under Heaven” are for the country.
