432. Lao Tzu Philosophy and President Reagan

I am just a little bit curious about the tradition of borrowing from Chinese Civilization. The founders of the United States started the tradition to get enlightenment from the civilization. How about the tradition? Has it been maintained by US presidents in modern time. The answer is big yes. In his 1988 state of union speech, president Ronald Reagan pointed out that his administration used Lao Tzu philosophy as his governing principle. Look at the picture on the left.
