This implies that people know what virtues and vices are, and the difference between them. I would argue that the times we live in are such a mess because that’s just not the case. Examples: For corporations and the humans who run them, the greatest virtue is profit. For most politicians, the greatest virtue is the exercise of power. Both of which have the effect of vices on the rest of us. I mean that what CEOs and Presidents experience as the practice of virtue, we often experience as their practicing vice against us. For a lot of American men, the very acts and opinions they consider signs of “manly virtue” are experienced by women as oppression and control. Medium is full of examples of that. This would be great advice, if we had one set definition of “right virtue” and “wrong vice.” But who decides “right from wrong?”
Thanks for a solid list of advice for living in such a way as to make the world a better place.
