Dear culture cop,

Tao Te Ching/Dao De Jing and Lao Tzu/Lao Tze/Laozi are interchangeable spellings based on which romanization system you opt to use. Why couldn't (shouldn't?) the chapters of the text be considered poetry? How do you know the writer (writers?) didn't consider it so? What culture is not mixed, and what is wrong with cultural mixing to begin with?

The beginning of the end.
