To End War, Abolish Peace

Lao Tse suggests that society would be improved if there was no knowledge, charity or justice. If there is no ignorance, then all are knowlegeable. If everyone has what they need, there is no reason for charity. If there is no injustice there is no concept of justice because all is just. The world is a balance of opposing elements - yin and yang. Without darkness there is no understanding of light. Without evil, one would have no word for good. Therefore if there is no war, no violence then all would be at peace and the word would no longer exist.
