Tao 75

Many do not have enough
Because a select few have far too much.

The people are difficult to control
Because there is someone trying to control them.

The people are poor and starving
So they have little to lose in revolting.

The subjugation of the poor naturally leads to the overthrow of the rich.

This is a simple fact.
