The GNL Tao Te Ching

19. Simplify

If we could abolish knowledge and wisdom
Then people would profit a hundredfold;
If we could abolish duty and justice
Then harmonious relationships would form;
If we could abolish artifice and profit
Then waste and theft would disappear.

Yet such remedies treat only symptoms
And so they are inadequate.

People need personal remedies:
Reveal your naked heart and embrace your original nature;
Bind your self-interest and control your ambition;
Forget your habits and simplify your affairs.
