I do not necessarily see much of a similarity between any of the three Eastern ways of thought (Confucius), (Legalism), or Taoism and democracy and Christianity.  Not that they could never mix, people mix things all the time that are odd, like pregnant women and pickles and ice cream.  Such a mixture may be syncretic, but that has happened in past, and will happen again the future.
