The Tao of Political Leadership

“The female overcomes the male with


Lying low in stillness.

Therefore if a great country gives way

to a smaller country,

It will conquer the smaller country.

And if a small country submits to a

great country,

It can conquer the great country.”

— Tao te Ching

How would a Taoist view influence politics and activism? Why are we so afraid to submit? Why do we allow fear to govern our private and public lives? Why do we grasp and cling to our ideas? What would happen if we let go?
