Mozi criticized Confucius for advocating “love with distinction” (privileging one’s family in respect, service, and loyalty), because Mozi thought ethics cannot be partial, it has to be impartial. So he proposed another kind of love–universal, mutual love, where everybody would respect and be be loyal to everybody else, without making exceptions for their family. He criticized Confucius when he boats that in his village when a father steals a goose, his son would protect him, saying that the son should denounce his father to the authorities.
1. What do you think? Is universal, mutual love better for society or was Confucius right i saying that filial piety (family love) should take precedence.
2. Think of the following scenario: your father comes home with the stolen money that he intends to use to pay your tuition. Would you take it? Would you admonish your father for stealing it? In other words, would you behave like Mozi or like Confucius? Justify your answer by appeal to the ethics of either philosopher.
