On politics, Taoists again stress internalization and non-intervention. Chapter 80 of the Tao Te Ching states, Let there be a small state with few people, no ships and carriages used, no weapons displayed. There should be no visiting with the neighboring state (qtd. in Feibleman 150). Lao Tzu believes that even the ruler should rule by inaction.
