Human beings invented lamps, cars, phanes, mobile phone, computer, etc. Sometimes, I wonder whether those creations of science will make modern people happier than ancient people or not. Without lamps, people would have to sleep earlier, and be healthier. Without cars and planes, there would are less air polution. Without computers, we don’t have to suffer from radiation. Without TV sets, we would have more time to enjoy the nature, to spend more time on staying with friends, family, etc. Probably I should not blame them on the discovery of science but too many greedy desires of human beings. One part of Laozi's ideology is to ask people not to have too many desires.
进步成了 无底洞 Progress becomes a bottomless pit.
强权上了 不归路 Military might is on the road of no return.
不听 古板老学者 If you don’t listen to the old, square-headed
scholar (Confucius & lao zi),
拜服 衣冠禽兽下 then bow down to the beasts in fancy suits
