Seven Blunders of the World- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

While reading some comments from an article concerning the unresolved debt agreement by the Super Committee, I came across an interesting quote. It's actually a list:

Seven Blunders of the World by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

1.) Wealth without work.
2.) Pleasure without conscience.
3.) Knowledge without character.
4.) Commerce without morality.
5.) Science without humanity.
6.) Worship without sacrifice.
7.) Politics without principle.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (October 2, 1869 - January 30, 1948), is also known as Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma in Sanskrit means "Great Soul." He is known in India as Bapu, which means "Father."

His birthday, on October 2, is commemorated in India as a national holiday known as Gandhi Jayanti. This day is known worldwide as The International Day of Non-Violence.

Mohandas Gandhi was a prolific political leader and pioneer who utilized non-violent civil disobedience. Through his actions, he inspired worldwide civil rights movements, especially in America.

The Seven Blunders of the World is often referenced to the Seven Deadly Sins. This list was given from Gandhi to his grandson Arun Gandhi.

In his research to uncover the roots of violence, Gandhi believed that these mistakes inspired passive violence.

I just wanted to give you something to think about. I definitely learned something new.
