Question Confucianism help

Okay I'm studying other religions and I cannot seem to find the structure of power in Confucianism. They don't seem to have a structure of power like Christianity, Islam, or other religions. If you will someone post a link to a site that may help me? Thanks.

Confucianism isn't a religion, so that could be your problem.

but also, what do you mean by "structure of power"?
This is necessary. Life feeds on life

Yea I was going to say, Confucianism is purposely secular. Confucius stated that humans do not have the ability to understand the supernatural and therefore philosophy should be centered around figuring out the ethics of the physical world. His teachings are simply ethical philosophy, not religion. I very much doubt you're going to find a hierarchy within them since again, it's not a religion, much less an organized religious system.

No homework help allowed btw. There's a thread for that in ST.
