Lao-Tzu #18: When the country falls into chaos, politicians talk about ‘patriotism’.

18

 

When the great Tao is abandoned,

charity and righteousness appear.

When intellectualism arises,

hypocrisy is close behind.

 

When there is strife in the family unit,

people talk about ‘brotherly love’.

 

When the country falls into chaos,

politicians talk about ‘patriotism’.
