Lao-Tzu and Zhuang-Tze: An Anarchist Study Group

The central text of taoist philosophy, the Tao Te Ching, is considered by some as one of the great anarchist classics.  At the center of Taoism lies the notion of Wu wei (often translated; action through inaction). It can be summed up by the following quote from the Tao Te Ching

The world is ruled by letting things take their course. It cannot be ruled by interfering.

This and other ideas of Taoism resonate with modern concepts of anarchism.  This is a study group to learn more about the ideas of Lao-Tzu, Zhuang-Tze and other influential Taoist philosophers.
