About virtues

I have recently bumped by pure coincidence into the Pangea Foundation project, “Decent People – a More Decent World!” which really inspired me. Essentially, it instils virtues and respect for traditional values in children and works with loftier concepts, such as responsibility, reliability, honesty, courage, sensitivity or friendliness… The project invites parents, teachers and educators to join with the children. There is, in kids, an undying hope for a brighter future. I dreamed, as I sifted through the beautiful cards that guide children and navigate them to virtues that such virtue-promoting projects are written for those Czech politicos who cannot really be described as paragons of virtue—they tell lies, disobey laws, do not respect court rulings and show contempt for public views.

In the absence of such project, it’s we who must educate our political leaders. More than a hundred thousand protesters in Wenceslas Square could serve an educational lesson.

Wouldn’t it be nice if a more decent world started today?
