Please read Adam Smith's "The Theory of Moral Sentiments" . In our culture, prudence has been discarded, the word "justice" has been corrupted to the point of meaninglessness and beneficence is no longer required of the individual as government takes from one man and gives to another. There can be no virtue with prudence, justice and beneficence flushed down the memory hole. With no virtue, there is no great society, only the hollow world of socialism where anything goes, nothing matters, and we take from each other in the great name of fairness. With no virtue, society implodes and all will suffer, liberal, conservative, anarchist and libertarian alike.
