  • Do you mean, be a 'moral subject'? Or, defines the direction of 'moral progress'? Value is a really vague term, very subject to opinion, so not suitable for a question on this site, as is.

  • I mean what makes one thing better than another (in a moral sense).

  • Presumably any mental object, or phenomenon, can be ascribed value. This value results from the interplay of instinct and experience. My answer on the nature and origin of values provides more detail. For a sociological perspective, consider Spiral Dynamics.
