“A ruler should fill the people’s stomachs and empty their heads.” Lao Tzu (However, Mr. Yang could have drawn on Lao Tzu’s libertarian thought and noted the following maxims: “When taxes are too high, people go hungry.

Trust them; leave them alone.” Lao Tzu adhered to the principle of nonintervention (wu wei) and discovered the principle of spontaneous order more than 2,000 years before Adam Smith. In the “Tao Te Ching,” he instructed that when the ruler leaves people alone, “the people of themselves become prosperous.” That is a lesson both Beijing and Washington need to learn. James A. Dorn The Cato Institute)
