That is actually my point. Nobody actually seems to want to be accountable for cultivating true virtue. Hope only promises jobs. Christians focus on indoctrinating fundamentalism and excluding a fixed set of sins. Buddhism can’t prevent its own sex scandals. If you want a partial counter-example, the best I can think of is the military academies. They are at least self-conscious about training people in discipline, leadership and teamwork — and getting better at it over time. What would a school like look that was as single-mindedly focused on Training Culture Warriors? What would it have to subtract, not just add? You’d need more than relevant classes and high production values. Or even a rigid ideology. I have a theory, but first I want to see if we agree that’s the question worth asking.
