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.

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.
