They have no relevance in modern China. They have been replaced by a Marxist interpretation of society and the state.


G= They still strongly influence the culture of the people in their acceptance of speedy execution for crimes we would not consider capital, Tai’Chi and Gung Fu, along with Shao Lin’s expanding influence are taught by Taoist centers and widely used. The educated people are expected to behave in a Confucian manner.
60 years of Communist rule that is increasingly driven by money rights
have overshadowed even Buddhism and the three you mentioned. They have not caused them to disappear.

Taoism had begun to decay for several huge archaeological findings in recent 30 years.
Legalism had little influence in modern China.
