Tao Te Ching, 3

Don’t honor the worthy and people won’t compete;
Don’t value treasures and people won’t steal;
Don’t show advertisements and people won’t be distracted.

That’s why the wise, to bring order:
Empty the heart and fill the belly,
Weaken ambitions and strengthen bones.
Make people uncrafty, undesiring;
Make the crafty ones afraid to act.

Do without doing.
Then there’s no disorder.
