What, in your opinion is something of "value"? Would an adequate description of value be: "directing one's time and energy towards a more equitable and oppression-free society"? or would it be sharing the enlightened vision of "developing marketable skills attractive and desirable to the global economy" (Bill Clinton, 1996 campaign speech)?
