38. 13 Virtues normal people know

Rembrandt’s depiction of Aristotle contemplating upon a bust of Homer



Contrast with the record of America’s best known bust.



The highest virtue, according to Aristotle, was Intellectual Contemplation (Fabric Swatches).

In addition, the following 12 virtues also can be attributed to Aristotle and the sad reality.

1) Courage – bravery and valor vs Bone Spurs

2) Temperance – self-control and restraint vs Stormy Daniels

3) Liberality – bigheartness, charity and generosity vs Tax Jamboree for Billionaires

4) Magnificence – radiance, joie de vivre vs Mocking the Disabled

5) Pride – self-satisfaction vs Bragging about Bankrupting a Casino

6) Honor – respect, reverence, admiration vs Inviting Our Nation’s Enemies to Settle Elections

7) Good Temper – equanimity, level headedness vs Calling for Violence and Incarceration toward Journalists

8) Friendliness – conviviality and sociability vs No One Volunteered to Mention Pee-resident Had Toilet Paper Stuck to Shoe as He Climbed Stairs to Air Force One

9) Truthfulness – straightforwardness, frankness and candor vs LOLOL

10) Wit – sense of humor – meaninglessness and absurdity vs Military School of the Catskills Swirliemaster 2nd Class

11) Friendship – camaraderie and companionship vs Putin, Muhammad Bin Salman, Netanyahu, Kim, Duterte, Bolsonaro, etc etc etc.

12) Justice – impartiality, evenhandedness and fairness vs Witch Hunting with Barr and Rudy

No wonder comparisons are odious, thy name is Trump.
