Middle East

My view of the current conflict is best portrayed in the following video. Same hubris, stupidity, and eyes-wide-open race to the pit of dispair.
Film at eleven.


Ruling the country is like cooking a small fish.
Approach the universe with Tao,
And evil will have no power.
Not that evil is not powerful,
But its power will not be used to harm others.
Not only will it do no harm to others,
But the sage himself will also be protected.
They do not hurt each other,
And the Virtue in each one refreshes both.

Tao Te Ching by Lao Tsu
