Values, Work and Family
Growing up, did you learn mostly what the text call “the little virtues,” or “the great ones”? What role do the larger and more challenging virtues play in our common future? And if it’s important, how can our society teach them when most of us are focused on simply getting by? Explain providing examples from the text.
Communities can also have their limits. Loeb says “Let’s not talk about the bad things.” Do you think many people are afflicted with “misplaced politeness”? Use examples from the text and your own experiences to explain.
