Rod Rosenstein Tells Law Graduates to Fall Back on ‘Your Own Moral Principles’ During Ethical Dilemmas
In 1535, Sir Thomas More was executed because he refused to swear a false oath. In Robert Bolt’s play based on More’s life, “A Man for All Seasons,” More tells his daughter that when someone “takes an oath … he’s holding his own self in his hands. Like water. And if he opens his fingers then – he needn’t hope to find himself again.”In those days, an oath was serious business. I encourage you to take your oath seriously, as well.

One can swear allegiance to the Queen (as a symbol) and argue for the abolition of the monarchy.
