Tao Te Ching Chapter 18-1 Tao out of use / video
After great Tao has fallen out of use, we have "morality of love" and its rules. (Ch.18)
Rules are strict in Japan.
At the platform in a railway station, you can hear something like:
"The train will depart at 8:47AM thirty second."
And it does exactly at the time.
In the train, you may find some Japanese men standing by the conductor's booth and staring at him.
They are admirers of the excellent train control by the conductor.
These days in Tokyo, you can have your own fans if you are a train conductor.
Thanks to Nintendo's «Ressha de Go (Go by train/ a train simulator)», those fans know all the regulations and hazards at any station in Yamanote Line.
Of course, they know perfectly where hazard signals and speed limit panels are.
Lao Tzu doesn't like rules, but some surely do.
To read the text of Today's Tao / Tao out of use, please see Tao Te Ching 18-1 Tao out of use.
Tao answers your question!
