Moral excellence is the foundation upon which all other excellence is developed (science, medicine, industry, economics, government...)
When we lower our moral standards we lower our quality of life.
The core of the most excellent system:
Mat 22:37-40 And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets."
Go figure it. When love is at the core of the system, it rocks!
