Hi Rick -

Let's see if I understand the assumptions your using. In each cell of this chart, there's a continuum of some kind, and within that particular continuum, there's a golden mean, or an optimal practice. At the same time, there are ways of departing from optimal practice and not achieving the best balancing of contending interests. So, for example, at the intersection point of Collective, and Resource Acquisition, you posit Limited Government as the most effective reconciling approach. Implying, if I understand you properly (I might not), that other choices could be made, other than Limited Government, but that Limited Government would best express some sort of Aristotelian virtue, while the other options would pull us off into various sorts of Aristotelian vices. Simply within that one cell.

Am I properly reading the flavor of what you say?
