Until recently, most Americans would have agreed that the cardinal virtues are obviously good things to apply in our lives. There is nothing Machiavellian about them. They do not ask for money or demand that we do without; they are nonjudgmental; and if applied en masse, they would, without much personal sacrifice, actually solve most of the world’s problems. You don’t have to be a Christian, as I am not, to see how this is really about common sense and concern for the future.
