To distinguish these guidelines from guidelines issued by other organizations, the numbering convention adopted in specifically included OPPTS as part of the guideline's number. As a guidance document, these guidelines are not binding on either EPA or any outside parties, and the EPA may depart from the guidelines where circumstances warrant and without prior notice.
This Creed consists of three tenets: The Assassins carry out their duties through political, strategic assassination, in the hope that killing one individual will lead to the salvation of thousands. They also believe that they fight on the behalf of those who do not possess the abilities, resources, or knowledge to speak out against those who abuse their power.
These senses can be deceived in some measure, or otherwise will never convey the precise intrinsic quality of an object. Moderation is therefore an inherent principle of the Assassins, who shun extremism as destructive to society.
To treat one belief as absolute is to not only submit oneself to the irrationality of blind faith, but also to cloud oneself from the perspectives of inevitable dissenters. Because the quantity of variables is infinite, it follows that theoretically, anything within nature is possible, for as long as there is no absolute answer to any query, no impossibility can be ascertained.
Therefore, one must remain vigilantly open-minded to the unexpected and unknown, drawing to a conclusion while being ever mindful of that conclusion's plausibility of error.
Beyond being a further vessel for pluralism, Assassins are taught to be watchful of pretensions and their own capability to achieve either great dreams or great destruction.
In essence, this corollary commands one to take responsibility for one's actions towards oneself and society at large. Vengeance clouded my mind. It would have consumed me, were it not for the wisdom of a few strangers, who taught me to look past my instincts.
They never preached answers, but guided me to learn from myself. We don't need anyone to tell us what to do; not Savonarola, not the Medici. We are free to follow our own path. There are those who will take that freedom from us, and too many of you gladly give it. But it is our ability to choose — whatever you think is true — that makes us human There is no book or teacher to give you the answers, to show you the path.
Choose your own way! Assassins perceive societal norms and conventions as artificial structures that can hinder one's partiality and lead to prejudices.
These false boundaries include but are not limited to national borders, gender, ethnicity, social class, and race. As a result, Assassins oppose discrimination of virtually every kind, with physical abuse and slavery being especially abhorrent.
I suppose it is a natural tendency for us to aspire towards mastery of our surroundings. But this should not include other human beings. Every day more and more are pressed into service — by deception or by force. Others, though not so firmly imprisoned, are made to feel as if their lives are worthless.
I have seen the ways in which men persecute women. Heard the cruel words hurled at those who come here from other lands.
Watched as those who believe or act differently are made to suffer We discuss such things often — watching as we do from the spires of Masyaf.
What can be done to stop this? To encourage tolerance and equality? Some days we speak of education, believing that knowledge will free us from immorality. But as I walk the streets and see slaves sent off to auction — my heart grows cold.
When I see the husband hurl abuses and stones at his wife, insisting she exists only to serve him — my fists clench. And when I see children torn from their parents so that another man might profit — sent off to suffer beneath the desert sun and die On these days, I do not think that dialogue will make a difference.
In spite of this, freedom was not at the heart of their ambitions, but peace. The Assassins aspire for the establishment of global prosperity and harmony, the genesis of what essentially amounts to a utopia.
In this, they share with the Templars a sincere desire to resolve the chaos that plagues humanity. Their incompatible visions of the means by which such a utopia could be achieved dismantled this common spirit. Instead, they argue that humanity must be permitted to undergo the slow and arduous journey of developing tolerance for their myriad differences, a process derided as unrealistic and impossible by the Templars.Determination of trace elements in pigeon and raven feathers by ICPMS Heavy metals are considered to be an important threat to levels of toxic elements in pigeon feathers may point to simi-lar problems in Sandgrouses .
