The roots of violence

Sunday 7 August 2011, 3.45am HKT

Only I can see this…


1. Wealth without work


To gain wealth on the work of others without recompensing them justly.


To make others work as though it were a privilege to do so.

2. Pleasure without conscience

3. Knowledge without character

4. Business without morality

5. Science without humanity


Medicine for the sake of treatment rather than to relieve suffering.

6. Worship without faith

7. Politics without principles

Also known as

The Seven Deadly Social Sins

(per M. Gandhi)

The Naked Listener leaves you with this thought:

“If you tolerate this, your children will be next.”
