People of Character

People of character do the right thing even if no one is looking.

People of character do the right thing even if it costs more than they want to pay.

People of character do the right thing even if no one else does, not because they think it will change the world, but because they refused to be changed by the world.

  1. In occasions it is difficult to know what the right thing is. In my case I am the President of my neighbours Community house. One neighbour has occupied part of the ground which is joint property of all neighbours. But because people does not want problems or they think may be it will be in their interest in the future by acting in the same way, they deny to action against such occupation. In clonclusion either I go to Court on my own exclusively or leave this wrong action as it is – which in future will be followed by another neighbours.

    How should one act? Taking to Court the whole Community which will even deny his salutation to me in the future or acting right and taking legal action against all the neighbours which in fact have not opposed to this unlawful occupation?

    Needless to say that talking to each of them has proven absolutely fruitless.

  2. The issue might be more legal than ethical. Advice of legal counsel is the best route. Presumably the ultimate decision is that of the Board of Directors (or a corresponding governing body). Failure to do anything may become an invitation for a future disgruntled “member” to sue members of the board, individually. Your own personal legal counsel can tell you how to best protect yourself, and such actions on your own part could perhaps convince others to more easily see what is at issue.
