A Confucian dream

What if there existed a nation state which wholly ran on the Confucian principle.

Do not do others what you don’t wish to be done to you.

There is no constitution.  There is no book of law. The state exists on this very simple principle.  The moment one starts to apply this things start to become clear.
The more I think about this the more my mind refuses to accept the reality and chooses to remain unchanging. 
But as I force my way through,  the one big question that comes across is what to do with offenders.  Well the simplest answer I could find do the same thing to them that they orchestrated on their victim.
Well I am still in thought so no definitive answers.  If I figure it out I will blog it.
