Liu Ji’s Forgotten Wisdom

“A Nation does not prosper itself;

If its people has enough, it is prosperous.

Rulers are not powerful themselves;

When they have many knights, they are strong.

So when those full in envy are in office,

Knights retire to private life,

And rulers just bleed them with taxes.

When bureaucrats advance , people get hurt,

And then the nation is wounded. “

Liu Ji
