For Today –

 

We believe there isn’t a fellowship on earth which lavishes more devoted care upon its individual members; surely there is none which more jealously guards the individual’s right to think, talk, and act as he wishes. No A.A. can compel another to do anything; nobody can be punished or expelled. Our Twelve Steps to recovery are suggestions; the Twelve Traditions which guarantee A.A.’s unity contain not a single “Don't." They repeatedly say "We ought . . ." but never "You must!"

Collective fear stimulates herd instinct, and tends to produce ferocity toward those who are not regarded as members of the herd.
