Code of Honor - Point 2

The second line of the Code of Honor by L. Ron Hubbard is:

Never withdraw allegiance once granted.

This doesn't include any conditionals.

It doesn't say "If you were right to grant it in the first place..." or anything like that.

So what if you find out that the person or group you granted allegiance to has gone off the rails or was wrong to begin with?

I guess you have to assume responsibility as a member of the group to get it back on the rails.

That's a tall order. But just think how much better this joint would be if we stood by that kind of commitment.

That means friend, family, group -- even country. No turning your back on it now that there's a problem. Roll up your sleeves and do something about it.
