A value system as an organisation of ethical or ideological values of
an indi~idual or groups oT individual has a great role it plays in every
society. Without a value system, people are justified to act in any manner
the wish. There is no right or wrong. Every person does what is easiest,
not what is right. It eliminates that sense of selfishness in people because
it helps to commune the society. Until one have a value system, one
would not really l~avea nation. Everyone will try to create their ow
world, their own local government, states and even federations.
Value system naturally guide us as a people. They give us common
thoughts, words, actions and a sense of identity as a nation. However,
\aluss are the fabric of any society and they influence the beliefs and
moral of the people. The values of any nation determine what is
i~nportartto the people.
Great values are required to build a great nation. These values must be
clear, specific and easy to understand.
