Tao Te – 80

delight in a small country with fewer people
there are machines enhancing labor a hundred times
they are not needed
the people acknowledge death and find life close to home
swift transportation is available but unused
military equipment is at hand but no parades
spreadsheets abound but the economy flows without accounting
food is healthy clothes simple homes secure
happiness abounds
neighbors are near
interactions clear
fences leave each in peace
all the while the people grow wise and die easy
