Mencius was a Chinese thinker who lived between 372-289 BC and tried to ground and strengthen Confucianism with his views on human nature and politics.

Meng Tse or Mencius states that man’s inclination is towards goodness, that we must rely on the voice of our conscience, innate natural knowledge in order to find the right path, that the key to living in harmony is within ourselves, and that if we live in harmony, the social order will automatically be the best solution. He said it would be established.
