—“I swear to my fathers and brothers, and to my mothers and sisters. back to the beginning, that I shall transcend myself and mankind, into the gods we seek, by demand for the virtues of heroism, sovereignty, reciprocity, truth, duty, and warranty from all others; and I shall grant the same to any who consent; and shall protect the interest of those who came before us, those of us living, and those of us yet to come, by force of rule, prosecution, restitution, and punishment of those who resist.”—
