Pledge for Soldiers, Police, Security guards, Judges and Lawyers

What is the extent to which professionals in the area of dysfunction (soldiers, police, judges and lawyers) are acting with goodwill? Can we inject personal responsibility into the hierarchy of command and obedience?
Put an end to the cycle of ignorance, misunderstanding, global, local and personal conflict.

– Respond to conflict by transforming the conflict situation.
– Recognize and atone for your complicity in causing harm. Repent for your own brutality.
– Put an end to war in yourself. Become capable of peace. Discover your own part in creating conflict, including what you do for work, entertainment and in your daily life.
– Look at evil with the eyes of a mother.
→ Invite soldiers, police, security guards to change force into understanding.

Pledge for Solider: Fight for the Good
There is a goal more important the victory or national interest. While still doing their duty, soldiers should try to understand the nature of the conflicts in which they are involved, including the suffering, grievances and needs of all sides. Use force for protection, assistance, and building, rather than merely aggression. Fight for a lasting and meaningful resolution to conflict.

Pledge for Police: Protect, Understand And Help
Help those in trouble, including victims and those causing harm. Provide the help they need to address root causes and real solutions. Enforcing the law is important, but so is responding to the living human being in front of you.

Pledge for Security Guards: Transform Security Guards into Security Guides
Redefine the role of security guards as helping, resolving, teaching, and sharing, rather than commanding and enforcing. Turn Security Guards into Security Guides and the People's Ombudsman.
Security Guides play multiple roles in making a place meaningful. They help people in trouble who may be causing trouble, by engaging with them and helping them get the resources they need. They are a mediator between the customer, staff and management. They are aware, kind and helpful.
See pledge

“At some thoughts one stands perplexed, especially at the sight of men’s sin, and asks oneself whether one should use force or love and humility. Always decide to use humble love. If you resolve on that once and for all, you may subdue the whole world. Loving humility is marvelously strong, the strongest of all things, and there is nothing else like it.”
Feodor Dostoyevsky
