Meritocracy, Graciousness & Success

Today we were treated to a fireside chat on the topic of three virtues sadly misinterpreted by modern society (so the speaker said). This is nothing new, but the speaker invested this sad state with urgency. We do not want a meritocracy based on false and soulless merit, nor success based on selfish endeavour.

What we do want is to be people who have found mastery, and growth, and service. Especially the last, or else how can the best that is yet to be ever be?
