When Tao is Forgotten
When you forget the Tao,
You focus only on being a good person. When you forget to be a good person, Intelligence becomes the strongest asset.
When intelligence is the strongest asset, Cleverness and fabrication emerge. Cleverness and fabrication replace peace. When there is no peace, chaos emerges.
A state in chaos is taken over by selfish men.
