Gandhi and the conditions which create violence

Posted in future, history, quotes by thenextwavefutures on 26 December, 2007

The magazine Resurgence has a special edition to mark the 60th anniversay of Gandhi’s death in 1948. On the inside front page it includes a note written by Gandhi to his grandson, Arun, a few weeks before his assination, on the ‘seven blunders’ which promote violence. It seems as a good a way as any to mark the season of goodwill.

The ‘seven blunders’

Wealth without work

Pleasure without conscience

Knowledge without character

Commerce without morality

Science without humanity

Worship without sacrifice

Politics without principles
