The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Stilling War

This may not mean anything to President Bush, Vice President Cheney, or Secretary Rumsfeld, but The Tao Te Ching says, (chapter 31): “Calm and repose are what he (the superior man) prizes; victory to him by force of arms is undesirable. To consider this desirable would be to delight in the slaughter of men; and he who delights in the slaughter of men cannot get his will in the kingdom.”

It’s something to think about as we continue our war in Iraq.
