2. To make justice prevail amongst all the inhabitants, in the full meaning of the term.

3. To observe strictly economic principles, and to assign functions to persons fit for them.

4. To work for the general interest, to strive to raise the nation to the same rank as civilized people, in accordance with the principles of a gradual change.

5. To prevent absolutely any discord and any action which might be detrimental to our good name.

6. To prohibit any dissension or party formation.

7. To be solid and united with regard to all matters concerning the improvement of conditions.
