Before Genghis came along, the Mongols acted like barbarians through their constant tribal rivalries and fightings; however, with Genghis’s strong-willed attitude and his strive for change, he was able to humanize and lead his people. For an example, unlike Khan’s predecessors, he “elevated men based on their abilities, courage and loyalty to him. If a man showed courage in battle and cunning in tactics, he’d find himself rapidly promoted.”. The quote demonstrates how the Mongols had a new system where they had to earn their military position and it gave them the drive to be a trustworthy and honorable soldier. Originally, Mongols were given positions based on birth, but Khan changed that and therefore Mongols became morally developed.
“As banditry disappeared in the Mongol empire under the Yasak law, merchants were active to supply the now wealthy Mongols with supplies and arms” (Slatyer n.d., 322). This helped in linking of many trade routes and eventually helped the regional civilizations of Mongol empire to flourish economically. This was also significant in the proper working of telegraph, parcel system called ‘yam’. To make the communication between him and his governors at various cities easy, he also came up with a network of post houses through which messages, parcels as well as goods can be sent. Decreased or no risk of the theft of items being transported supported the smooth and timely movement of goods.
Comparing the merits and demerits, his success much outweighs the failure for a certain. Though he is heartless and cold-blood towards his opponents, but those were means to manage and unite a country in a fast-paced and efficient way, just like a saying said, “being kind to your enemies sometimes is the same as being cruel to yourself”. In that time, Genghis Khan needed to unite whole Mongol and enhance his power among all the countries, he needed to make decision with a decisive mind. Therefore, his cruelty is understandable and inevitable. Take Qin Shi huang and Empress Wu as examples, they also used high-pressured tactics to control their followers, however, at the same time, they had great achievement and distinctive merits as Genghis Khan.
His thoughts have been praised for its practicality, clarity and modernity. His writings on best form of government were first seen as a threat to not only the state but also to religion as he promoted monarchy- a rule by a single person. But his writings have helped the catholic churches face the struggles throughout the ages and make revolutions. St. Thomas’s influence grew stronger over time and his thoughts were used to develop theologies and helped in the formation of various
It opened intercontinental trade, produced new nations, changed the course of leadership into religions, and impacted written languages and legal codes. 2.1. Tolerance over religion One of the Chinggis Khaan’s greatest legacies was the principal of religious tolerance. Mongols had benevolent attitude toward foreign religion, wanting no divisions rising from religion, evidenced by when Chinggis Khaan declared freedom of religion throughout the Mongol Empire. Instead of imposing their native religion into the conquered lands, the Mongols sought to ingratiate themselves with the leading foreign clerics in order to facilitate governance of the newly subjugated territories.
Both Babar and Humayun had broad visions and inclination to support Islam and Hinduism. However, owing to their short rule, not many positive steps could be initiated. Akbhar in his time had abolished the tax on non-Muslims, called the Jizya, to be paid by adult, free, sane males. He believed that no single religion could claim monopoly over truth. Thus he respected all the religions practiced by his subjects.
RELIGION CAUSES MORE HAARM THAN GOOD TO SOCIETY Religion according to the oxford dictionary is the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power especially a personal God or gods. Every human being in one way or the other belongs to a particular religion. Since religion makes us worship one God then it should be binding all of us. Actually it is not, it rather tears people apart day in and day out .It is true that religion has influenced society positively in diverse ways, but the bad outweighs the good. Thus I think religion causes more harm than good to the society.
However, the research is inconclusive. The majority tries to speak well in Kazakh and everybody respects it. Assimilation process is happening between all cultures in Kazakhstan, because of congestion of large amount of ethnicities, which respects each other’s culture.

Even our president calls us to learn other languages, but it doesn’t mean that he doesn’t respect our state language(Kazinform 2014).
Though it is more of a cause and effect way of getting people to do the right thing. In Hinduism or Buddhism, etc. being nice will send positive things your way, doing bad things will fill your life with unpleasant consequences. There are plenty of cultures where the “golden rule” is not widely held. The Nazis, being the most historical example, would not have wanted to be treated the same way they treated Jewish people, the handicapped, and the elderly.
Confusionism, on the other hand, put heavenly laws over that of mans.This made laws for citizens much looser than that of the Qin dynasty. Quality of life improved under Han rule because the Qin dynasty made sure that their laws were followed with an iron fist. The Han dynasty still implied for their laws to be followed, but not as strict or with as nasty
