Wow! I do like it when people express clear moral principles in unequivocal language. It is the 1990's version of candid opinion in JA's time. I think I agree with what you said, but then I started wondering... doesn't Socrates pose a question about whether it is better to be virtuous or happy? Couldn't Lucy be satisfied/happy in a worldly sense but not in a spiritual/moral sense?
