Weegy: The Mandate of Heaven is based on four leading ideas: 1.The right to rule China is granted by Heaven. 2.There can be only one legitimate ruler of China. 3.The right to rule is based on the virtue of the ruler and his good performance as a steward [ for Heaven. 4.The right to rule may be passed down from father to son, but only on the conditions established above. Once the Mandate is lost, the will of Heaven towards a successor will only be known by the working out of the imponderable force of events in human history. These four leading ideas have important implications: 1.Legitimization of the ruling house in the eyes of the people who come under its sway 2.Times of divided rule require some rationalization after the fact to establish which ruler can claim truly to have the Mandate 3.The rulers put checks on their own behavior, and are encouraged to invest in the well-being of their subjects. 4.The rulers necessarily fear rebellion, possibly because they believe in active intervention from Heaven, and/or possibly because they know that misbehavior will give positive sanction to attempts by others to overthrow them. - - - ] (More)

Weegy: It was the first to believe in only one god that wasn't a substantial figure like a statue or picture. It instead tried to focus on the spiritual aspect of religion- not the ceremonial aspects of worship. It also forbade human sacrifice. [ While not unique in this aspect, it wasn't very common in that time. ] (More)
