Freedom of Thought

Do not force others, including children, by any means whatsoever, to adopt your views, whether by authority, threat, money, propaganda, or even education. However, through compassionate dialogue, help others renounce fanaticism and narrowness.

--The Third Precept of the Buddhist Order of Interbeing, from the book Interbeing, by Thich Nhat Hanh
