72. Revolution

When people have nothing more to lose,
Then revolution will result.

Do not take away their lands,
And do not destroy their livelihoods;
If your burden is not heavy then they will not shirk it.

The sage maintains himself but exacts no tribute,
Values himself but requires no honours;
He ignores abstraction and accepts substance.

Încercare de traducere așa cum am înteles eu:

Revoluţie

Când oamenii nu mai au nimic de pierdut
Atunci revoluţia izbucneşte.

Nu le lua pământurile,
Şi nu le distruge stilul de viaţă;
Dacă povara ta nu este prea grea nu o vor evita.

Înţeleptul se menţine dar nu stoarce nici un tribut,
Se preţuieşte dar nu cere nici o onoare;
El ignoră abstractizare şi acceptă substanţa.
