Tao Te Ching 53

With even a little knowledge of cosmic energy forces
   it still requires vigilence to stay on the path.

The pathway is plain enough but many imagine they can take shortcuts.
The results are easily seen:
… corrupt courts
… barren fields
… empty barns.

When the powerful
… treat themselves to the best
… are jealous of their privileges
… live in a different world from everyonelse
… pay no taxes
It's daylight robbery –
   not Tao.
