What I took from the reading is that Confucius is criticizing the people who do not use integrity. Confucius expects everyone to have integrity. In army words integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is looking. Its about being honest and trustworthy and having strong moral principles that Is what everyone should try to be. A person with integrity takes responsibility for their own action they put others needs above their own. They show respect to everyone and offer to help the people that need help. In my opinion and
example of this is when The Master said: “Don’t worry if you have no position: worry about making yourself worthy of one. Don’t worry if you aren’t known and admired: devote yourself to a life that deserves admiration.” This is saying that you should be a person that deserves admiration. Devote yourself to an honest life, a life that you are proud of filled with honesty a life that you know you did the right thing at the right time for all the right reasons. I agree with Confucius, integrity is an important character trait that a lot of people don’t have. In the end, people without integrity cannot be trusted.
