Gandhi’s List of Blunders

This list contains “the seven blunders that human society commits, and that cause all the violence,” according to Mohandas Gandhi.  He gave it to his grandson in 1947, 3 months before he was assassinated.

Wealth without work.
Pleasure without conscience.
Knowledge without character.
Commerce without morality.
Science without humanity.
Worship without sacrifice.
Politics without principles.

60 years later, human society has not made much progress in these areas. Hopefully, younger generations are learning from our mistakes.
