    At a superficial level, Laozi and Mozi seem to be at odds with one another on nearly all levels. Mozi’s philosophy is backed up with reasoning and a prevailing idea of rational thought in order to create order.

At a glance Laozi’s philosophy seems far too mystical to have similarities with Mozi, but they actually have far more in common when it comes to how they believe a government should be run. The ideal state in both Daoist, and Mohist thought operate in such a way that they are highly similar, not so much as explicit structure, but more so in the underlying roots of legitimacy, the basis of laws, and the role of the state to bring order. The foundation of Laozi’s philosophy is that to create order, a ruler cannot become tied up in making moral distinctions and then forcing those distinctions on the people. Laozi wrote “The more clear the laws and edicts, the more thieves and robbers” (Laozi ch. 57) As a result of making these distinctions, even if the intent is to produce “good” people, “bad” people are also created.

    When I was a high school student, I thought the work was extremely difficult. I would stay up cramming, my eyes scrambling the notes to memory, and working through problems over and over nonstop. I would come home and do multiple assignments for hours which felt like an eternity. However, high school was not that grueling and stressful compared to my college classes. College requires triple the time to do assignments, and in college I find myself working late into the night losing track of time…

    Way before I even thought college was a word, it was always implanted of what kind of career I wanted to study. I will probably change my mind, like I’ll change my under wear because I am so indecisive. Over time, As I was becoming older and closer to graduation, I eventually became more realist of what I wanted to be after high school and how to start this dream to become a reality.
