Gandhi's Seven Deadly Sins

People have always been morons, a piece of disgusting shit. And for ages, humankind tried to find a conceptualized system wherein they could channelize their spiritual shortcomings. The system had to be profound, vast such that it could take into consideration varied forms of disgusting behaviour. It also had to be simple enough such that an illiterate peasant can also understand and induce in himself a feeling of guilt. And thus came up the seven deadly sins- Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed and Sloth. I fear how the people that laid down these deadliest sins forgot to include Ignorance, for it is the cause and many of the other sins are effect.

Mohandas Karamachand Gandhi, one of the most influential figures in modern social and political activism, considered these traits to be the most spiritually perilous to humanity.

  • Wealth without Work
  • Pleasure without Conscience
  • Science without Humanity
  • Knowledge without Character
  • Politics without Principle
  • Commerce without Morality
  • Worship without Sacrifice
These attributes present the ethics and morals of a nobleman that Gandhi was. But sometimes, I wonder if the Gandhi, who framed the above traits as perils to humanity, would have thought differently had he been existed in the Modern world. And for his sake, I add two more to his pile that would complete my nine deadly sins of this era.
  • Reading without Understanding
  • Learning without Questioning
