Control by doing nothing that goes against nature, which is proposed by
Lier, commonly known as Lao tze, who is a philosopher in the Spring and
Autumn Period and the creator of Chinese distinguished school of Taoist.
Its ideology is based on obeying natural rules and respecting objective
facts, as a progress and state to achieve governance. Almost people
usually consider it as inaction, namely do nothing at willing. From my
individual perspective, this conclusion is incorrect.
Lao tze, the founder of Taoism also give an abstract answer by a story
in order to express this theory――“a glass filled with water cannot add
water to it, while a empty glass is able to add water again.”
This story tell us if we satisfy ourselves situation, we will not be
