3 : I Not to reward superior ability is the way to keep the people from rivalry; not to prize things which are difficu1t to procure is the way to keep them from becoming thieves; not to excite their desires is the way to keep them peaceful.


3 : 2 Therefore the sage, in governing, calms their minds, attends to their simple needs, stills their cravings, and teaches them  simplicity.


3 :3 He keeps them peaceful and desireless, and keeps others who are desirous from manifesting their desires. Where there is  abstinence from action, good order is universal
