Theft

“If some poor devil steals a belt buckle, he is decapitated. If a politician takes possession of a whole country, the professional moralisers flock to him to put their “wisdom” at his disposal. The logical conclusion is that, rather than wasting one’s time with small thefts, one should steal a whole country. Then one will not have to go to the trouble of further thefts or have to fear the executioner’s axe.” – Chuang Tzu.

– Taken from the book “Taoist Wisdom” – Timothy Freke

    • Chuang Tzu lived 2400 years ago, or so they tell us, although little has changed in the intervening years. However those directing the relentless and interminable media bombard would of course prefer that we remain ovine and ignore such an obvious truth. Nevertheless, here we are.

      Thank you for taking time to read and respond.
