The Language of Conscience ®
A Code of Beliefs

 

    We believe that the strategic organizing principle of civilization must be the pursuit of conscience over convenience. Good versus Evil vary in the eye of the beholder, but conscience is definable as a concern for others where convenience is only for self.

    We believe that the operating principles of conscience are the honor of obligation and the appreciation of compassion, while we recognize the operating principles of convenience are often greed and the arrogance of power. A culture of conscience focuses upon the Rule of Law with just enforcement, the recognition of morality, the Golden Rule, and the creation of a culture of service to others. A culture of convenience often leads to the corruption of economics, terrorism and the abuse of power in politics, and the division as opposed to the unification of society.

    We believe that every man should grant to every other man the same rights and personal dignity that he would reserve for himself.

    We believe that power is often dominated by convenience and the only way to bring conscience to power is to create a culture in which it is valued, and thereby leads conscience into power.

    We believe that to create such a culture of conscience you must have the stability of security based upon the foregoing principles which require a thorough understanding of the joint benefits of the Common Good, the Golden Rule, and the justly enforced Rule of Law. Such understanding of civilized principles is not national but global and must be implemented by both civilized rules of compliance and cultural peer pressure.

    We believe that the forces of change battle existing status quo interests in the fields of Economics, Politics and Culture, and that wisdom as opposed to emotion, can help make decisions on change that over time influence the positive direction of civilization.

    We believe the tactics most effective to these ends are the creation and unification of efforts seeking ethics to combat corruption, of appreciation of human dignity and value to oppose terrorism, and the creation of a culture promoting responsibility as opposed to victimization. We believe strong family values are the core of such cultural ethics.

    We recognize that all decisions require the balance of costs and believe that a coordinated system of analytics, trend evaluation, and measurement with prioritization are necessary, as well as a careful understanding of the consequences of a decision. A system of thoughts, based on conscience, applied to decisions can itself move society to positive change. The method by which you think often determines what you think.

    It is not the most intelligent or the strongest that often survive, but instead the most adaptable to change. Change is a cultural ability more than an economic or political power, so cultural values may well determine a society’s future.

    The Language of Conscience is no more than the willingness of men to join together in discussion with appreciation of each other. Enlightened Conservatism is no more than a thought process to allow wisdom to replace emotion. It is not on an act of weakness, but of warrior’s honor, to seek truth from facts or respect for your ideals.

    While men may well disagree, to talk with honor and integrity is owed to civilization and the common good. To teach the next generation ethics, the honor of obligation, and conscience is the ultimate goal. Destiny is implanted in each generation by the values created and passed forward. Each man, each business, each institution has its responsibility to be part of positive change. This is owed to the “uncommon men” of the past who fought for such values and is the legacy left to our children’s common future.

       Those uncommon men recognize the relationship between society and the individual. The society as a whole is not capable of regulating the individual without the individual giving his support. True power requires an appreciation of virtue and the part that it plays in building and maintaining a great society. Very complex systems usually change only in crisis, but change in such systems requires a vision to which the various parts can migrate their individual strategies and the ability to integrate within it to a stronger whole. Hopefully crisis is not necessary but the vision of a common good can be powerful enough to anticipate the necessity of change and a unifying vision. Some basic principles of history have been well stated by others that can provide fundamental guides as to the best organizations of such visions.

Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.”

President Ronald Reagan

“Guide them by edicts, keep them in line with punishments, and the common people will stay out of trouble but will have no sense of shame. Guide them by virtue, keep them in line with the rites, and they will, besides having a sense of shame, reform themselves.”

Confucius

“Start something new today; foster it tomorrow and every day after that, then begin to imagine the possibilities of what you will achieve.”

Enzo D’Alimonte
