Mencius Tells About Confucius was presented by Joel Welty of the Great Lakes Humanist Society. Joel assumed the role of Meng-Tsu, who lived in the ancient Chinese empire two-thousand three hundred years ago, but found himself speaking before our group in the present time. Meng-Tsu explained that he was asked, as long as he was here in our 2004 CE time period, to speak to us on Kung Fu Tze, the world’s first and most influential freethinker.
