Excerpt from Manual of the International Order of Twelve of Knights and Daughters of Tabor: Containing General Laws, Regulations, Ceremonies, Drill, and a Taborian Lexicon
Orders, societies and governments Were insti tuted for the purpose of making a united effort in a given direction. What one man cannot aecom plish, many men united can. Hence great enter prises for the Well-being of mankind are carried foward by companies. Governments are formed by uniting a number of people under one form or code of laws. Societies are organizations of a number of persons to accomplish a certain object, or to obtain a desired end. Man was made a social being; he must have society, or the company of a fellow-being, or he Will drift into barbarism and brutality. Man is an intelligent being. Civiliza tion, art, science, and architecture, and govern ment, must come only from an united effort. Therefore, the members of the International Order of Twelve have formed one band, united by the strongest ties of friendship, and bound together by solemn obligations, and established on a firm basis, for the purpose of making a united and effective effort in aiding each member in sickness or dis tress, to protect and defend each other, to aid and help the Widows and orphans of members that died in good standing, to inculcate true morality, that the members of the International Order of Twelve may be an example to the masses of mankind.
