Ursula La Guin 1929 - 2018

Ursula La Guin published a worthy version of the Tao Te Ching amongst her many other literary achievements. Like all reasonable anarchists she had a solid understanding of the Tao. This quote fits in nicely with the current state we're in snd with her death perhaps a good time to reflect on it. 

 "We’re in one of those big yin-yang movements, and the yang is so extreme. But then it will do what all extremes do, it’ll suddenly begin turning into the opposite. There’s another part of Taoism that we haven’t discussed that is part of my view of the world – extremes always do implode and begin to turn into the other thing."
