Virtue, Reward and …

Virtue is its own reward…

The greater good.

Greater good for who?

Greater good for mankind at large? So if there are only 100 people and 51 will be betered and 49 not, take care of the 51? What if YOU are of the 49? Is it not more virtuous to better your own kind? What if the greater good for mankind is the lesser good for the rest of the planet? Would not the most virtuous thing be for the Earth to survive rather than just our own flawed species?

Good then is subjective, no?
