The American Citizens Institute exists as a vehicle for those who shall work to ensure a fair, suitable, and orderly balance between individual freedoms, and the imposition of government social control. Guided by principles of the highest integrity and worth, all work shall pay duty to matters of cooperation, fairness, proportion, fact, and benefit. It is with unity and knowledge that this institute hopes to foster the concepts that will provide a foundation on which lives can be saved.
I. We are independent
American Citizen Institute has no division or lines drawn. We are not aligned with any organization, race, or outside cause. We have no targeted opposition, nor do we harbor any hidden agendas, or sponsers. Our approach and perception is placed outside of any specific culture, state, political alliance, or group. We keep a universal conscience toward the goodwill for all people.
II. We are peaceful
American Citizen Institute is opposed to unprovoked aggression, force, violence, or any illegal means being used by anyone, even when the ultimate intent is for an honorable purpose. We are servants for peace and do not protest, complain, challenge, or point fingers. We exist merely to work alongside and subservient to all of those closely tied to the problems that we are working to resolve. We think that man should never kill man without thorough process or carefully measured reason. We place human lives above all things.
III. We are human
American Citizen Institute knows that as human beings our reasoning is a process, and that human perfection is impossible. Through the realization that within us we have challenges of our own, and by working to overcome those challenges, we think is the best way to come to qualified conclusions and solutions. Some of the ways we do this is by adhering to a neutral, fair, unselfish and universal perspective, working collectively and recognizing all opinions, thinking back as well as ahead, and by using empathy and tolerance as our guide. We keep goodwill and compassion at the forefront of our intentions.
IV. We are loving
American Citizen Institute regards love as a necessary two-way ingredient for life that requires tolerant, empathetic, and compassionate action and interactivity. We renounce hatred and all other forms of excessive fear.
V. We are transparent
American Citizen Institute believes that freedom of information promotes progress, just as the concealment of the truth is restrictive. We support the carefully managed exchange of information for solidarity and the uniting of communities.
VI. We are free
American Citizen Institute holds that reservation of basic individual freedoms must be protected so that individuality of life may thrive. We believe that a universally-desired safe and harmonious community can only exist under equal protections under the rule of law, and that any deviation of that rule, or tolerance for deviation, whether by any person or institution, can only serve as a disruption of that peace.
These are the guiding values and principles of the American Citizens Institute.
