Tao Te Ching Chapter 75

By Lao Tzu

Chapter 75

  • The TTC isn't done telling rulers how to rule.
  • It warns that the people starve when a ruler overtaxes them.
  • When a ruler is too forceful and controls every little thing, the people eventually become hard to control.
  • The people will rebel if the ruler lives a fancy life at their expense.
  • If the people's lives are awful, they won't care if they die, so there's no reason they won't violently rebel against their corrupt ruler.
