88 Precepts is an essay or manifesto written by David Lane, a founder of the white supremacist organization The Order. Written while Lane was serving a 190-year prison sentence, 88 Precepts is a treatise on natural law from the view point of David Lane as well as guidelines for securing, protecting, preserving and establishing white territorial imperatives,[1] and is an expansion upon Lane's own Fourteen Words. 88 Precepts is commonly used by white supremacy groups and those who advocate white nationalism and separatism.[2]

The number "88" is also used by neo-Nazis to represent "Heil Hitler", as "H" is the eighth letter of the alphabet whereas Lane claimed that 14-88 was part of his "Pyramid Prophecy" and part of his racialist pagan religion of Wotanism
