The Tao of Friday

Wow.  Chapter XVIII sure is an indictment of human nature, isn’t it?! The last part is my favorite.

When the great Tao is forgotten,
goodness and piety appear.
When the body’s intelligence declines,
cleverness and knowledge step forth.
When there is no peace in the family,
filial piety begins.
When the country falls into chaos,
patriotism is born.
