Comments on Dao #3 (governance by sages)
This is episode 3 of a series I am introducing where I comment on the book Dao De Jing by Lao Zi. The present entry covers Chapter 3 of the book and covers topics of politics, how sages would govern, whether such arrangements are viable, how our life is one of action and not theory, how we always need to account for the scope of application, and the like.
