Verbal Question

Read carefully the passages given below and answer the questions.

I do not appreciate of forbiddance by law. According to me, it is a worthless attempt at a self-arrogated virtue. Wine is as old as gods and it has come down to us through ages and scriptures as the supreme soothe for the human agony. It is our legacy of an age when gods were mortal and men were divine, and though wine has been accursed as an hateful evil since its first sip by man, he has not stopped drinking at its bubbling fountain of vice and forgetfulness. A nation that needs legislation to maintain the virtue of its people is really unfortunate. Saints have preached great sermons on the immoral of drinking but this Christian scriptures of the saints has always remained a bad sermon in the world of sinners. It is good for the saints to preach but stupid for the state to enforce that preaching, for what is enforced by law ceases to be moral. A virtue is a virtue only when it is acquired through self-realisation, not when is is pushed on the lives of the people. Every new law creates a new group of law-breakers and one more sin is added to the sum-total of human crimes. As Goldsmith says that virtue which requires, to be ever guarded is scarcely worth, the sentinel.

No virtue remains a virtue unless
+

Explanation: The authors quotation at the end of the para states that virtue which needs a watch man from outside cannot be called as virtue, therefore the sentinel needs to be discarded as virtue can only be a virtue when it is achieved without help of any outside agency, i.e. through self-realisation.
