The Wheel Will Turn: Reflections on a Quietist Revolution Summary


The Wheel Will Turn: Reflections on a Quietist Revolution - Award winning Taoist author, William Martin, explores the fascinating paradox of "quietist activism" in this series of short essays. As Martin states, "The Tao Te Ching is potentially the most subversive, radical, and revolutionary book in print. If we were to live according to its principles, we would turn society 180 degrees, and allow for a natural, vital, and compassionate alternative." His essays explore such themes as "Revolution," "Opinions," "Rules?" and "Blame." He brings the confidence and serenity of a Taoist life into the world of social activism and revolution, seeing the two approaches as necessary components of true transformation.
