Confucianism teaches: “All within the four seas are brothers.” For Buddhism, “There is no caste in blood, which runneth of one hue.” Christianity holds that “God hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell in the face of the earth.” Yes, people are people everywhere. They have the same basic drives — the same hopes, fears and aspirations.
