“Values can be characterized as arbitrary (individual or institutional choice reigns), acceptable (current conditions or culture dictate what matters most), and authority (tied to the consumer, ‘what sells’ is often the basis for values). I refer to values as a weak word. We need strong terms that clearly designate our intentions.
A better word is virtue which describes ‘conformity to a standard or right.’ In church history, Augustine, Aquinas, and others subscribed to justice, prudence, temperance, and courage as key virtues.” ~ Mark D. Eckel, I Just Need Time to Think!
