  1. The answer to your 1st comparison is that Taoism teaches to go with the flow, and Confucians teach you to obey, so they go hand in hand. Taoism is also into equality, I believe, so it disagrees on that front with Conf….
    I haven’t had legalism in a while so ur on your own for that one. 🙂

  2. Confucianism:

    and

    HINT:
    Confucianism deals with how the ruler treats the ruled (e.g. how the king treats his subjects, how the housemaster treats his servants).
    Taoism is “the Way.” Te Tao Ching is only 5,000 words!

    Taoism is “the way” through life on the basic level and “the way” through the universe on the meta-physical level (if you really want to go there). Lao Tsu (old man) wrote it in three days before he entered Tibet and was never heard of again. The gatekeeper would not allow Lao Tsu to pass until he wrote the Te Tao Ching – or so the story goes.
    The definitive text is:
