Rise of the Tao

Rise of the Tao

found via Books Inq.

I don't know quite what to make of this story.  If there were ever a more cynical and calculating secular use of religion (I'm sure there has been) it's hard to bring to mind immediately.


  1. Thanks for posting the link. I found it very interesting. I've long been fascinated by Taoist thought--I find it more an ethical or philosophical system, at least the early writings anyway, than a religious system.

    The Taoist "religion" came several centuries after the core writings and most scholars feel it came as a reaction to Buddhism.
