Ten Commitments (an ethical and modern replacement for the Ten Commandments)

Ten Commitments

1. Do not lie to yourself.
2. Do not lie to other people, unless they are exercising tyranny.
3. When you think it is your duty to inflict pain, scrutinize your reasons closely.
4. When you desire power, examine yourself carefully as to why you desire it.
5. When you have power, use it to build up people, not to constrict them.
6. Do not attempt to live without vanity, since this is impossible, but choose the right audience from which to seek admiration.
7. Do not think of yourself as separate wholly self-contained unit.
8. Be reliable.
9. Be just.
10. Be good-natured.
