Virian Virtues


The 3 Virian Virtues summary: Thinking about why things happen, being generally nice while trying to understand others, and thinking about the future.


No other system of thought in history has proven more effective. If truth is the goal, rationality is the way. A good Virian will endeavor to hold a consistent set philosophy and act in accordance with that philosophy. Think critically, act rationally.


If anything, the ability to see from another's perspective is what sets humans apart from most other animals. It is the basis of many of the qualities that we hold in highest regard: kindness, charity, mercy, welfare, forgiveness. Far from being irrational, empathy confers a distinct advantage in any social situation. It provides a foundation for promises, contracts, and deals. To a large extent it is the glue that binds society.


Vision is the name we give to the quality of possessing a perspective that goes well beyond the individual in terms of space and time. All too often people make perfectly rational decisions which turn out to be bad because they were framed with too limited a scope. They fail to consider the real consequences (meaning) of their actions.
