When the way is abandoned

18

When the way is abandoned,
there is benevolence and righteousness.
When cunning and knowledge arises,
there is manipulation and hypocrisy.
When there is disharmony in families,
there is piety and devotion.
When the state is in disarray,
there are loyal and upright ministers.
