SORT BY Relevancy
In THE SEVEN DEADLY VIRTUES, nationally renowned journalist, Senior Writer for the Weekly Standard and author Jonathan Last leads an all-star team of 18 conservative writers in a hilarious, insightful, and sanctimony-free remix of the Book of Virtues. THE SEVEN DEADLY VIRTUES sits down next to readers at the bar, buys them a drink, and an hour (or three) later, ushers them into the revival tent without them even realizing it. This collection of 18 original essays—by such writers as P.J. O’Rourke, Christopher Buckley, Jonah Goldberg, and Andrew Ferguson—aims at rediscovering the virtuous life in an era of momentous change.
As Jonathan Last argues—the problem today isn’t that we “no longer live in an age concerned with virtue. The problem is that we have organized ourselves around the wrong virtues.” He maintains that we’re now incorrectly structuring society around “seven modern virtues” (Freedom, Convenience, Progress, Equality, Authenticity, Health, and Nonjudmentalism) instead of the “seven cardinal virtues”.
Virtues are universal and recognized by all cultures as basic qualities necessary for our well-being and happiness>
We know if we forgive someone then we may not be as angry and uptight, and we know it takes courage to accomplish great things. So why then, if we know what to do, do we still stay stuck? Because we have not yet consciously and boldly applied a virtue to a given situation so as to alter its outcome, from what has always been to what can be.

If we continue to study our condition and talk about solutions and implicate those same solutions as best we can in our own parts of the Globe then and only then can we expect changes. But for us to sit around just talking and filming our problems and doing nothing to help change the situations that create the problems in the first place is Hypocritical. So call in and voice your Solutions I will be waiting to hear from all of you, even if it is just on the music.
hy•poc•ri•sy(h?'p?k r? si) n., pl. -sies.1. the false profession of desirable or publicly approved qualities, beliefs, or feelings, esp. a pretense of having virtues, moral principles, or religious beliefs that one does not really possess. You can not pay for the virtues that it takes to be a leader for the people I do not care if you ascend to the position like Goodwill Zwelithini or self appointed and not elected. It is just, immoral to be in the public eye and make your living off the backs of the peoples suffering, never extending a helping hand unless it is profitable to you and causing them more suffering. I am an educator, I receive a salary that is modest and when I can I spend my money in the way of Allah, and towards the education of the people.
Listen as Clare Maxfield interviews Coca Sevilla on her upcoming AICI Global conference Presentation on Thursday August 27th at 2:30pm. Her session is entitled
Claves para Asesorar a un Politico
There are a number of myths surrounding political image consulting due to what it entails. However, it is a reality that this is a poorly exploited niche of the market for image consultants and is therefore worth evaluating. Advising politicians represents an enormous commitment, which means that having an efficient methodology is fundamental to fulfilling our job successfully. Highlighting the virtues and minimizing the defects of these public figures is a challenge in an environment in which the people are constantly becoming more difficult to convince. In politics, there are no second places: you either win or lose. In this conference, we will identify how, through different image techniques; we can help a candidate to obtain the votes necessary to reach their goal.
