When the Tao is Forgotten, Chaos Emerges

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.
