Confucius Analect of the Week, August 26, 2011


"No one calls Wei-sheng Kuo upright!  When someone asked for vinegar he sought it from a neighbor and gave it to him [the someone]."  (James R. Ware, Chapter 5, Verse 24)

Look on the bright side.  Wei-sheng Kuo ASKED a neighbor.  Today politicians TAKE from a neighbor to give to another (to buy votes).  Who can call tax-and-transfer politicians upright?

P.S.  Confucius was on vacation last week, trying to catch a glimpse of the goings-on in Martha's Vineyard.
