I've always felt that Gulliver practices benevolence and compassion in this chapter. He genuinely respects the emperor and describes him as a handsome and able leader. Let's face it, the man could wreaked havoc on Lilliput with no other weapon than his size, and he didn't do it. Arrows were nothing more than tiny needles to him. All he wanted was to be freed by the emperor; his desire for true freedom (earned not violent) was honorable in itself.
