How successful were these religions at organizing the societies in which they were practiced?

Hinduism, Buddhism, Janism, Sikhism, Shinto, Confucianism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Are some better at organizing a society than others? Which ones? Could all produce happy and productive people if followed correctly?


  1. Well, I don’t think that every last one of those faiths have been given a chance to run a complete society. And many of them haven’t gotten an equal chance. Christianity, for example, has been the biggest single religion in the world for a very long time.
    But in terms of producing happy and productive people, I would guess that all could work reasonably well, if done correctly.

  2. All religion originally found to improve the morality of people and make their life happier and easier. But since some people uses religion for other purposes, the religion lost its main goal. That is why we can be happy only when we can practice a pure religion. The organizing of Catholic is better in the large scale since it has a leader to regulate the religion. But other religions have a good organizing in a small scale like community. Large scale organizing is good for administrating except when the leader is not fit for the job. Small scale is disadvantage but corruption can be limited.

  3. Well, I can give u the sucess Buddhism have taken.
    Buddhism teaches to love,to be kind,give ,treat well not only humans but also animals so people in countries like Sri Lanka and Thailand are so kind and generous and full of hospitality.
