Tao 53

Following the path of Tao does not require extraordinary intelligence,
But be wary of straying from it.

To follow the path requires little effort,
Yet it is common to be diverted from it.

Governance and justice are purchased by a relatively few
As the most powerful in society bathe themselves in disproportionate wealth.
Poverty, famine and war point to a system of corporate corruption and government dishonesty.
Wealth is funneled upward.

This is known as legal theft.
It is not the way of Tao.
