  • What is virtue and how do we know that we are virtuous? Who can define it? Sure, Webster can say "Moral excellence" but how it that morality defined? Is it something that we inherently know? Or do we need to be taught? Is a virtuous and just man any better off than an unjust man when it seems that they are rewarded equally or even disproportionately toward the favor of the unjust? These are age old questions and require more delving than the space allotted here in one answer!
