“Seven Blunders of the World”


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

—Mahatma Gandhi

To his grandfather’s list of seven blunders Arun later added an eighth: Rights without responsibilities.

“… BALANCE, which was Gandhi’s central point. He wasn’t calling for work without wealth or humanity without science, he was calling for work AND wealth. Science AND humanity. Commerce AND morality. Pleasure AND conscience.”


It appears to me we have all of these going in a negative direction in the US these days.

Not saying there is a better country to go to, but we could certainly “go to a better place” in the US if we fixed this, and it has to begin with me!!!
