Confused Even More

Confused Even More

"Do not use a cannon to kill a mosquito!" an old man called out to you.

Someone caught you by surprise, but you caught what he said so you react, "Whoa! What the?! I never even thought of that! What has the cannon have to do with a mosquito?"

"The people may be made to follow a path of action, but they may not be made to understand it," he answered.

You clearly get confused. Hoping to make things clear, you asked, "Are you talking to me, old man?"

To which he grimly interjected, "What. Is. The. Sound. Of. One. Hand. Clapping?"

He glared at you, as if he were expecting you to answer. But you shut silent and left--you left confused even more than before.

Then the old man smirked.
