1: Value is both artistically subjective and morally coerced, but does it possess any intrinsic value? 

2: A work of art, it is fair to assume, cannot be intrinsically beautiful, as its beauty is elaborated in the beholding minds that are perceiving it.  The aesthetic value, as it appears, is bestowed, not inherent.

3: Ethical value is decided by the morality it serves.  It is a societal agreement espoused by a majority.  But it still lacks intrinsic value, because value is given its qualities by those willing to uphold it.  In other words, value receives its qualities from us.
