    In a providential universe , virtue is the sole good because providence is guiding things. So we trust things will work out for the best.

    But without providence we have decide what we value , which is a challenging task. It's funny to see modern stoics stumble on this point. They can never explain why virtue is good , because they destroyed the foundation for that belief. That's why they aren't able to become a sage, there is still doubt hidden in the subconscious mind.

    This is where epicurus saves the day with long term pleasure as the sole good.

    Here's my video , I think the same way but I've been expanding on my thinking lately. I've been obsessed with epicurus so I found this site on my own. But I prefer Facebook and discord. I finally signed up here cuz im waiting to get into the Facebook group and because it was recommended to me in the discord.
