Values and traits recognized.
The legislature also recognizes that certain basic values and character traits are essential to individual liberty, fulfillment, and happiness.

These values and traits include the importance of:
(1) Honesty, integrity, and trust;
(2) Respect for self and others;
(3) Responsibility for personal actions and commitments;
(4) Self-discipline and moderation;
(5) Diligence and a positive work ethic;
(6) Respect for law and authority;
