4. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.

5. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.

6. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.

7. You cannot further brotherhood by inciting class hatred.

8. You cannot establish security on borrowed money.

9. You cannot build character and courage by taking away man’s initiative and independence.
