Tao te ching, verse 57
tao te ching


verse 57



if you want to be a great leader

you must learn to follow the tao

stop trying to control

let go of fixed plans and concepts

and the world will govern itself



the more prohibitions you have

the less virtuous people will be

the more weapons you have

the less secure people will be

the more subsidies you have

the less self-reliant people will be



therefore the master says:

i let go of the law

and people become honest

i let go of economics

and people become prosperous

i let go of religion

and people become serene

i let go of all desire for the common good

and the good becomes common as grass

Liberals and Spendocrats obviously never read the Tao Te Ching.

Come to think of it, they never really read anything outside of their publicly funded school education and MSM indoctrination, have they?

It's amazing what you can accomplish, if you don't need to get credit for it.

But that's not the way our organizations run. The selfless enabler described in the text would not measure up, and would not instill the fear necessary to keep his troops in line.

If you need the rewards of this world, you find you must use the methods of this world. And those are not what the Tao Te Ching is describing.

The TTC is so passive. Does it really fit in with today's modern existence. I don't see the TTC taking anybody very far. (I personally don't see that as a bad thing). It's not a very good time to lead anyway...to be elected these days, you need to be part entertainer, usually Christian (insert nations religion) and mostly a deal maker. Forget about old, wise and experienced.
