In changing times, it is easy to become afraid. Our natural tendency is toward self-defense and hiding. Sometimes, the best defense is offense—sometimes. That’s the thinking of the masses during times of change.
Fools are often their own worst enemies. Evil men are indeed foolish or they wouldn’t be evil. And evil is what people fear during times of change. From the viewpoint of understanding, change isn’t something to fear.
When the tide comes in, rise. Don’t fight, don’t resist, don’t quit, and don’t fear. Sometimes, an even better defense strategy is to just do nothing at all.
