  2. “If only there were superiors who delighted in
    [impartial caring and benefiting one another], who
    encouraged their practice through rewards and
    praise, and threatened those who violate them with
    penalties and punishments, I believe that the people
    would take to impartially caring for and benefitting
    one another …” (Mozi 76).
    If only there were rulers who appreciated them,
    who encouraged their practice and punished
    those who violated them, the people would
    value impartially caring for and benefiting one
    another.

  3. “Killing an innocent person … is even more wrong
    than entering his stable and stealing his horses
    and cattle. … Up to this point, all the gentlemen
    of the world know well enough to condemn such
    actions and declare that they are wrong. But when
    it comes to the great wrong of attacking another
    state, they do not know enough to condemn it”
    (Mozi 77).
    Killing an innocent person is even more wrong
    than stealing his horses and cattle. … Everyone
    knows to condemn killing and say it is wrong. But
    when it comes to attacking another state, they
    do not condemn it.

  4. “But now people see a small wrong and know
    enough to condemn it but see the great wrong of
    attacking another state and do not know enough
    to condemn it. Rather, they praise this and declare
    that it is the right thing to do. Can they be said to
    understand the difference between right and
    wrong?” (Mozi 78).
    How would you paraphrase this in your own
    words?
