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

The Seven Blunders of the World is a list that Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi gave to his grandson Arun Gandhi, written on a piece of paper, on their final day together, shortly before his assassination in 1948. Gandhi called these acts of “passive violence,” and said that preventing these is the best way to prevent one’s self and society from reaching a point of violence.

    • This is a constant plbroem with me. My plbroem though is I think in terms of series. So I’m halfway through the first one when a certain secondary or even minor character goes Oh wait! I have a story too, which will come into play after this one! Haha! Look at me throw a wrench into your plans! Bwah! Ha! Ha! Ha!’ And so I start a new notebook with all kinds of notes. So while it’s a vicious cycle in which the sequel doesn’t let me finish the first book to begin with, it also helps me add depth to the current story, if I keep at it.(Going through this right now. )
