The ideal state in both Daoist, and Mohist thought operate in such a way that they are highly similar, not so much as explicit structure, but more so in the underlying roots of legitimacy, the basis of laws, and the role of the state to bring order. The foundation of Laozi’s philosophy is that to create order, a ruler cannot become tied up in making moral distinctions and then forcing those distinctions on the people. Laozi wrote “The more clear the laws and edicts, the more thieves and robbers” (Laozi ch. 57) As a result of making these distinctions, even if the intent is to produce “good” people, “bad” people are also created. His explanation for this is that, because all living things are unified in the Way, the good and bad of the world are all part of its natural order. The Way is active in…

    part of it nonetheless. And I am not sure how to process the meaning of his text. I have a strong love for history but a small part of me wishes I had never learned that two men actually wrote a book that was used to accuse and kill hundreds or thousands of people.
