Today it is more common to hear about values tan virtues. Current thought is that society would be safe, healthy, and happy, if only we could instill proper values into people. Values-based moral education is nothing other than the art of making good choices, which are guided only by one's own values. One could critique this approach to morality on philisophical grounds, but my criticism is simple and to the point. The problem is that values fall short when it comes to making men moral. Having good values is a fine thing, but the battle of morality is not so much about knowing what is right as it is doing what is right. The difference between wanting to do the good and actually doing it is tremendous. Thus, many men who commit adultery know what they are doing is wrong (no need for value clarification), but they are unfaithful despite their values. Right values do not always translate into right action.
