Genghis Khan had a government with a code name “yassa” that had a standard of equality towards everybody. He prohibited stealing, defection of soldiers, wife stealing, and other rules which made everything safer. He gave full protection to everybody and had no favorites with anybody.  The Mongol Empire did not emphasize the importance of ethnicity and race in the administrative realm, instead, He believed that appointments and responsibilities should be given by talent and skills not by wealth. 

Mongols were highly tolerant of most religions, and typically sponsored several at the same time. At the time of Genghis Khan in the 13th century, virtually every religion had found converts, from Buddhism to Christianity and Islam. To avoid strife, Genghis Khan set up an institution that ensured complete religious freedom, though he himself was a shamanist. Under his administration, all religious leaders were exempt from taxation, and from public service. Mongol emperors were known for organizing competitions of religious debates among clerics, and these would draw large audiences.

  • I'm in my father's class at my high school. He said this today:

  • Him:

    As some of you may not know, I'm a feminist.

  • class:

    *laughs*

  • Him:

    No, really, I am.

  • Class:

    *laughs again*

  • Him:

    Why is that funny?

  • Asshole:

    Because you're a man, and you shouldn't think that way.

  • Him:

    Well why not?

  • Asshole:

    I dunno that's just the way that is.

  • Him:

    I'm a feminist because of my wife. She and I have the EXACT same job. Yet, I make more than her.

  • Class:

    *laughs*

  • Him:

    Why is that funny? Shouldn't women be paid equally as men?

  • Same Asshole:

    No, they're supposed to be in the kitchen.

  • Him:

    *slams fist on asshole's desk* Why?

  • Asshole:

    Because that's how it is.

  • Him:

    Why?

  • Asshole:

    That's their job.

  • Him:

    Why?

  • Asshole:

    *can't come up with another answer*

  • Him:

    I'm a feminist because my wife has the exact same job, gets less pay, and with that, I can barely support my three children. If she got paid as much as me, life would be a bit easier for all of us.

  • *note, my mother is a teacher like my father*

  • Him:

    Women gave birth to us, and now, here in the state of Michigan, they can't even have their own rights? It's 2014 people! Grow up or get out of my class.

  • Class:

    *silence*

  • Him:

    Now.. Louis XVI
