Note:

Dear Perfect Stranger,

There are many things that we as people have found to be wrong with our society. Non-violence activist and freedom fighter, Mahatma Gandhi, came up with a comprehensive list of these things called “Seven Blunders of the World”. What he came up with follows.

1. Wealth without work

2. Pleasure without conscience

3. Knowledge without character

4. Commerce without morality

5. Science without humanity

6. Worship with sacrifice

7. Politics without principle

I think those seven mistakes cover just about ever situation which we as a society find unfair. What do you think? Would you add anything to that list? Have you seen yourself affected by any of these blunders?

Have a wonderful day!

Sincerely,

Your friendly picker upper 🙂
