Really great moral teachers never do introduce new moralities.  It is quacks and cranks who do that.  As Dr. Johnson said, “People need to be reminded more often than they need to be instructed.”  The real job of every moral teacher is to keep on bringing us back, time after time, to the old simple principles which we are all so anxious not to see. – C. S. Lewis (1898-1963)
