A code of conduct for young Marine officers

By Fleet Admiral Akainu

It has recently come to my attention that many of our young officers don't know how to behave properly in their positions. So therefore I decided to write this guide to explain everything and help you to understand your duty as champions of Justice.

It is the duty of every Marine officer to uphold Justice. Every officer has to uphold Justice. Whoever doesn't uphold Justice diligently is an enemy of Justice and has to be dealt with swiftly. This is Absolute Justice.

Always remember: you are the champions of Justice. You're always doing Justice. If somebody tells you otherwise, he's an enemy of Justice. Enemies of Justice have to be dealt with swiftly. Make them an example to everybody who doubts your Justice. Only that way can Absolute Justice prevail.

Your superiors have more experience in upholding Justice, so trust their judgment and obey all of their orders without the slightest hesitation. It doesn't matter that you don't understand why they are doing it, they know better then you what Justice is. So observe and learn. If you don't, it means that you are enemies of Justice and will be punished accordingly. There's only one punishment appropriate for enemies of Justice. I'm sure I don't need to tell you which one. Such is Absolute Justice.

As you undoubtedly understand now, upholding Justice without hesitation is the most sacred duty of the Marines. If a Marine isn't relentless in upholding Justice, he is even worse than an outright enemy of Justice, because he sets a bad example for his comrades. That makes him even worse than pirates, who are our sworn enemies. Whichever Marine hesitates in upholding Justice has to be dealt with swiftly before he can contaminate his peers with his cowardly ways. That's the way of Absolute Justice.

The new Marine recruits often don't understand Justice well enough. You have to constantly remind them that the Marines are Justice. Show them what happens to those who doubt it often enough. Only then your men wouldn't hesitate to uphold Justice no matter what. There's nothing like an exemplary punishment if you need to raise morale. And it teaches your men Absolute Justice.

I believe I've covered everything important. So, dear Marine officers, never forget that you are Justice. Nothing but Justice matters and no action is too extreme when it helps uphold Justice. As long as you keep this in mind, Justice will prevail. The Marines are the Absolute Justice.

I hope that this explanation will help you to understand Justice better, If not, then you're enemies of Justice and will be dealt with swiftly and exemplarily, in the name of Absolute Justice.

Yours sincerely

Fleet Admiral Akainu
