  1. Harming others for one’s own gain is bad luck for oneself.
  2. Neglecting elders and only caring about children is bad luck for the family.
  3. Using incapable people instead of virtuous and wise people in government is bad luck for the country.
  4. Elders not teaching youth and youth not learning from elders is bad luck for society.
  5. Virtuous sages going into hiding while ignorant and unvirtuous people grab power is bad luck for the world.
