Fight a battle by (abnormal) tactics of surprise. Win the worldby following the natural laws. How do I know that this should be so? Throughthis:
Howdo I know this? Through the following observation:
The more restrictions there are, the poorer the people. The moresharp weapons, the more trouble in the state.
The more clever and crafty the men, The oftener strange things happen.The more articulate the laws and ordinances, The more robbers and thievesarise.
Therefore the wise say, "Do not interfere, and peopletransform themselves. Love peace, and people do what is right.
Do not intervene, and people prosper. Have no desires, andpeople live simply."
