The political authority must tolerate the evil acts, if they are slightly detrimental to the common good, in order to protect freedom and to allow the realization of virtuous acts.

Virtues and vices of a subject can affect him in the public sphere and a right society needs virtues: it is not enough to ensure legal mechanisms and various procedures of control.
