“When people have nothing more to lose, Then revolution will result.

“Do not take away their lands, And do not destroy their livelihoods; If your burden is not heavy then they will not shirk it.

“When rulers take grain so that they may feast, Their people become hungry; When rulers take action to serve their own interests, Their people become rebellious; When rulers take lives so that their own lives are maintained, Their people no longer fear death.”
