Chapter 65

65.1 In ancient times,
       good practitioners of the Way
       did not use it to enlighten the people,
       but to make them unsophisticated.

65.2 When people are unruly,
       it is because of their sophistication.
       So to govern a country by cunning
       is to rob the country.
      Not using cunning to govern a country
       is good fortune for the country.
65.3 To know these two is also a model.
       Being always aware of the model
       is called hidden virtue.

65.4 Hidden virtue is deep, far-reaching,
       in contrast to ordinary people.
       Only when it i thus
       does it reach great accord.
