Seven Social Sins

In today's newspaper, I came across a photo of the current Japanese Prime Minister Mr Junichiro Koizumi, who is presently on a visit to India for strengthening the ties between Japan and India. In the photo Mr Koizumi holds a banner reading "Seven Social Sins" as compiled by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi a.k.a M.K.Gandhi popularly known as Mahathma Gandhi - the father of our nation. I reproduce them below :

Seven Social Sins
  1. Politics without Principle
  2. Wealth without Work
  3. Pleasure without Conscience
  4. Knowledge without Character
  5. Commerce without Morality
  6. Science without Humanity
  7. Worship without Sacrifice
