The Governing Virtues

Derek V. Schmalenberger

Crime and conflict could hardly exist in a society that exalts the governing virtues.

Carefulness
avoiding error and detriment
Composure
calmness under stress
Considerateness
concern and support for the well-being of others
Honesty
being forthright when appropriate and not deceiving anyone
Introspectiveness
contemplating one's own behavior, choices, and thoughts
Lucidness
thinking and speaking clearly
Moderation
avoiding extremes
