17. Trust People and They Become Trustworthy
The sage understands leadership
And the people choose their own fate.
Another type of leader works for love and praise. The next type of leader manages through fear. And the final type of leader is despised.
It is by trusting the people that they become trustworthy. Setting the example through action,
The wise leader lets the people have the credit.
The line between enlightenment and insanity is very thin indeed…
