4.01 Traditionally, we hesitate to take anyone to court, especially those weaker than us.
4.02 Forcing our wishes on others by strong and angry words can be a form of domination, lacking respect for the other. Our tradition is to speak gently and respect others’ views.
4.03 We desire a peaceable relationship with the earth, using resources sustainably.
