[GalFisk] The good, the bad and the ugly

Postby GalFisk » Tue Dec 27, 2016 4:21 pm

The first is a virtue, making thing more pleasant.
The second is a vice, with dire consequences.
The third is a practical consideration, for the sake of efficiency.

Can these three together make something never seen before?

Virtue - love? kindness? hope? cleanliness?

Vice - smoking? drinking too much? envy? laziness? carelessness?

Are the three related in any way?

Is a person with the virtue relevant? With the vice? If so, is this the same person with both the virtue and vice?
More pleasant: For whoever has the virtue? For others? For something else?
Consequences: For whoever has the vice? For others? For something else?
