When the Great Way prevails

The world-state (one-world nation) is for all the public, 

The virtuous and able are appointed as civilian officers,  

Trustworthiness is instilled and neighborliness cultivated, 

People are pious to all parents, not just their own, 

And nurture all children, not just their own, 

Thus, the old are provided until after their departure, 

The adults are employed, and the young are developed,
 
Widows and widowers, orphans and childless, the sick and disabled, 

All are well cared for, 

Men have their proper positions, women their families, 

Wasting of commodities is despised, as is hording them for self-use,
 
Not contributing one’s efforts is abhorred, same as devoting them for one’s own ends, 

As a result, evil schemes are repressed and cannot flourish,
 
Robbers, thieves, and rebels cannot commit their crimes, 

And people do not close their front doors,

This is called "the Age of Great Comity"
