The Analects of Confucius

What assumptions does Confucius make about human nature when he says that one should lead the people through moral force rather than regulations and keep order among them through rites rather than punishments?

I think he was speaking to the fact that people respond much better to value centred example rather than punitive force. People should be empowered through rites rather than punished through force.
