The Essential Principles of The Interim State:
The Interim State is one which will do whatever is necessary to turn The Current State into The Ideal State.
I: The good must be acted upon and the results must occur during the course of life.
II: Any action which eliminates an element that drains from the state's resources is only good if the benefit that would be gained from removing the element would not be greater than the effort expended to correct it.
III: Any organization formed for governance is only necessary so long as the benefit it returns to the state is greater than the cost of retaining the government.
IV: That which is unnecessary should be removed so long as the cost of removing it is not greater than the benefit from removing it.
IV: Since those with the means and opportunity will take resources for themselves without the consent of others, it may be necessary to ensure that theft does not ensure, so long as the cost of protection does not outweigh the possible cost of theft.
V: Logic is an efficient means of discriminating correct information from incorrect information. Efficient employment of logic is necessary to preserve truth. If all are logical, then deception will be impossible.
VI: All are capable of improvement and management, and should strive to understand themselves to do so.
VII: A sufficient understanding of language, and improvement of that language, is necessary to improving the capacity of the individual to adapt to a changing environment.

X: The most efficient means of ensuring social tranquility is to live as you would want others to live, and as much as possible, let others live as they wish to, so long as your desires do not impede theirs, and theirs do not impede yours.
Key 1: Some forms of behavior are unusual. However, this does not mean they are inherently inferior.
XI: The most efficient means of ensuring the maintenance of supplies is through the focused research and development of necessary tools. The scientific method and a free market is an efficient means of focusing research and development.
XII: The independence of the individual, while accepting the necessary code of etiquette, and recognition of necessary beliefs and essential principles, is the most efficient means of allowing the individual to improve itself.
XIII: The actions of the individual are predicated upon their biological state and previous experience, and thus can be predicted.
XIV: Most means of understanding the biological state and previous experience in The Current State is not an efficient means of predicting behavior; it is pragmatic to believe in free will.
