Excerpt from The Argentine Grain Grower's Grievances

Ch'ao Ts'o (perished B.C. 155), a leading Chinese statesman, popularly known as "Wisdom-Bag," who lived under the First Emperor of the glorious House of Han, in memory of whom the Chinese are still proud to call themselves the Sons of Han, wrote as follows in an essay: -

"On the Value of Agriculture"

"Crime begins in poverty; poverty in insufficiency of food; insufficiency of food in neglect of agriculture. Without agriculture, man has no tie to bind him to the soil. Without such tie he readily leaves his birthplace and his home. He is like unto the birds of the air or the beasts of the field. Neither battlemented cities, nor deep moats, nor harsh laws, nor cruel punishments, can subdue this roving spirit that is strong within him.

"He who is cold examines not the quality of the cloth; he who is hungry tarries not for choice meats. When cold and hunger come upon men, honesty and shame depart. As man is constituted, he must eat twice daily, or hunger; he must wear clothes, or be cold. And if the stomach cannot get food and the body clothes, the love of the fondest mother cannot keep her children at her side. How then should a sovereign keep his subjects gathered around him?

"The wise ruler knows this. Therefore he concentrates the energies of his people upon agriculture. He levies light taxes. He extends the System Of Grain Storage, to provide for his subjects at times when their resources fail."
