Identify the problems... Prepare a dossier.
Then an incremental Plan-of-Action resume
in stages of 3 (Easier to remember that way).
Deal with the problems... Then take a holiday.
Then ask the oracle again what it has to say.
Since abuse of freedom is the cause of decay
careful consideration must map the new way
in order that the end will bring a new day.
Society corrupted by base attitude & fashion
is like a wind blowing low on a mountain
which is held back and spoils the vegetation.
To do away with this form of corruption
the superior one must first remove stagnation
attaining success by orderly implementation.
Like mountain wind one stirs public opinion.
After strengthening, must placate population.
Corruption flees upon society's regeneration.

SIX AT THE BOTTOM:

But decay has not penetrated deeply
and hence it can be remedied easily
as a son who compensates for the decay
that his father let get in the way.
One must not take the matter lightly.
Cognizance of the dangers in every
reform results in things going okay.
