Chapter 46

When a country is in harmony with the Tao
the factories make trucks and tractors.
When a country goes counter to the Tao,
warheads are stockpiled outside the cities.

There is no greater illusion than fear,
no greater wrong than preparing to defend
yourself
no greater misfortune than having an enemy.

Whoever can see through all fear
will always be safe.
