FILS is ethical. We are dedicated and committed to our work. We won’t always be right, but we will always strive to work hard to help shine light on what is right. “An argument which does not convince yourself”, explained Dr. Johnson, “may convince the Judge to which you urge it; and if it does convince him, why, then, Sir, you are wrong and he is right.”
