Virtue is a word not often used in the modern America. Even if it were used, it would be so misused that it would not be worth using the word. If asked, the average person on the street might tell you that virtue is an old-fashioned way of saying that someone is a good person or a good citizen – the sort of person who picks up litter in the park or volunteers for a charity. This understanding, however, is miles from the real richness of the word.
