What Happened To Our Virtues?

As I delve deeper into the philosophy that is Stoicism, I am noticing how relevant it is to modern day life as it was when it was first discussed.

For example, Stoicism holds these four concepts in extremely high regard:

  • Courage
  • Wisdom
  • Self Control
  • Justice

While I am not pointing any fingers here, because I am surely to be found as guilty as the next person, what I would like to know is do you, to the best of your ability, live a life guided by those four concepts?

If we don’t, how can we expect others too?

If we don’t how can we expect things to change?

If we don’t we can’t expect those who claim to be our leaders to be any different?

This reminds me of the quote by Joseph de Maistre

Toute nation a le gouvernement qu’elle mérite
(Every nation gets the government it deserves)

If we deserve better politicians, and therefore a better society, it is time that we demanded it from ourselves?
