I think I need to make this clear one more time.
Confucianism is full of hypocracy and South Korea is more Confucianist than any other country in the world, more than PRC, more than ROC, more than Japan, more than PRK, and more than Vietnam. It is extremely different from rationalism, industrialism, pragmatism, and practically all sorts of Western thinking. It prohibits the culture from sueing fathers who rape their daughters, beat their sons, enslave their wives, and neglect their responsibilities as patriarchs. South Korean LAW itself is extremely and very purely Confucian. It is legally correct for teachers to treat their students like dirt thanks to the great teachings of the greatest teachers in the ancient Chinese worlds. Your seniors will beat you outside the classroom if you just talk back to the teacher.
The "people" in my first post are limited to the people in South Korea who are South Korean nationals who were born in South Korea who speak only the South Korean Korean language. I am not.
As for beggars, I rather show contempt and like to be harsh in the face. Begging helps nothing except that there have been criminal sort of dirtiest people that take part of the money and other things collected all over the city. It is also a vast industry just like slave industries and sex industries making use of women-prostitutes, chained and forced.
If I have to give money for no return to myself, then it should be at least used to enhance the intellectual quality of the given person since the capability to think freely and clearly and create knowledge is the best thing to rely on, I believe.
How can giving money to beggars be help when it further makes them depend on begging? It certainly looks good to most people though the very existence of them in public subway cars is illegal and extremely inconvenient to the 20 million daily passengers.
But being hypocritical means something more subtle than being submissive to the moral, social, legal, governmental, economical, cultural, and other sorts of authorities.
