Do not intervene

"From the perspective of classical taoism, western humanism makes the mistake of assuming that the ability to intervene in life's events translates into a moral duty to do so."
"The constant and unmistakeable teaching of the Tao te Ching is that humans are indeed capable of intervening in life's events but the evidence of life, which humans constantly ignore, is that such intervention is destructive to all involved, and that we therefore have a moral duty to refrain from taking such actions."
- Russel Kirkland
