Beware the Hungry Man

Beware the Hungry ManIt is said in the Tao de Ching:

In this manner the sage governs people:
Emptying their minds,
Filling their bellies,
Weakening their ambitions,
And strengthening their bones.

If people lack knowledge and desire
Then they can not act;
If no action is taken
Harmony remains.

This can be more easily understood with the axiom fat, dumb and happy.
