Tax Collectors Are the Real Tiger Kings



Unnamed (1)America is slowly following the paternalistic style of government dominating China.

We are told in The Analects of the famous ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius (551–479 BC),

Once Confucius was walking in the mountains and he came across a woman weeping by a grave. He asked the woman what her sorrow was, and she replied, “We are a family of hunters. My husband was bitten by a tiger and died. And now my only son!”

“Why don’t you move down and live in the valley? Why do you continue to live up here?” asked Confucius. And the woman replied, “But sir, there are no tax collectors here.”

Confucius added to his disciples, “You see, a bad government is more to be feared than tigers.”
