“Solutions: Spontaneous Order”

Tao Te Ching:

“Do not control the people with laws
Nor violence Nor espionage
But conquer them with inaction”

The more morals and taboos there are,
The more cruelty afflicts people;
The more guns and knives there are,
The more factions divide people;
The more arts and skills there are,
The more change obsoletes people,
The more laws and taxes there are,
The more theft corrupts people.”

“Yet take no action, and the people
nurture each other; Make no laws,
and the people deal fairly with each
other; Own no interest, and the people
cooperate with each other, Express no
desire, and the people harmonize with
each other.”

Solutions: Spontaneous Order
