The Way to Fix America: Written 3000 Years Ago

If you want to be a great leader,
you must learn to follow human nature.
Stop trying to control.
Let go of fixed plans and concepts,
and the world will govern itself.

The more prohibitions governments have,
the less virtuous people will be.
The more weapons  governments  have,
the less secure people will be.
The more subsidies governments have,
the less self-reliant people will be.

Therefore the wise governor says:
I let go of the law,
and people become honest.
I let go of economics,
and people become prosperous.
I let go of religion,
and people become serene.
I let go of all desire for the common good,
and the good becomes common as grass.

The Tao Te Ching, The Book of the Way and How It Manifests Itself in the World Page 57.
