I don’t think virtue is an attribute. There’s virtues as a category of attributes but you have to specify which virtues as there’s a bunch.
Honesty is valued. Look what happens when somebody rich/powerful confesses to doing a bad thing. They are honored for confessing – for their great and brave honesty – but don’t suffer the kinds of consequences somebody who is not rich or not powerful would committing the same bad things.
Well, there’s honesty . There’s also sincerity. Then there’s intentions. I couldn’t even start to break it all down properly.
