So we live after virtue. Good thing, too, many of us would agree. No more "good Christian gentlemen" with all their exclusions, expropriations, and private realms of violence. No more wise old men running the state into the ground. Nor do women have to be hemmed in by such names as Chastity or Prudence. You can still say, "Neither a borrower nor lender be," but you will be talking to people whose wallets are full of plastic and whose retirement funds are floating in the stock market.
