Seven Blunders of the World


In commemoration of this 145th birthday of Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948), it is good to revisit his “Seven Blunders of the World,” which pointedly sum up how we mortals go astray. As the November elections draw nearer, we would do well to bear these in mind.

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
