"Honour Thy Father and Thy Mother, That Thou Mayest Be Longlived Upon the Land Which the Lord Thy God Will Give Thee"

Tea at Trianon links to these "insights from Monsignor Charles Pope" on that most Confucian of the Ten Commandments — Reverence or Ruin: How the 4th Commandment is Necessary for Civilization. The Sage himself would bemoan the "lack of respect of the young toward their elders" while at the same time extolling that "[p]arents and all those in authority have obligations and duties that flow from their status."
