Trickle Down To Disaster

When the king becomes so distant from his subjects that he forgets to feed their children,

The subjects will take notice.

When the king serves only his self interests and forgets his subjects interests,

The subjects will take notice.

When the king begins to sacrifice his subjects in order to save himself,

The subjects will take notice.

The subjects, when they’ve had enough, will rise up in rebellion,

The subjects will overthrow the king and kill him.

Lao Tsu
