Ancient China was stymied by Confucianism
For thousands of years Confucianism ruled China. While Confucianism has a positive view of human beings, It promoted a large bureaucratic class wedded to strict rules on how things should be done and who should be promoted. A thousand years ago China was the world's technological leader, but many historians believe that Confucianism was a big reason why China fell behind.
